Reduced-Fat Chicken and Cheese Enchiladas
Reduced-fat enchiladas sound like a bad idea, right? Wrong.
Why This Recipe Works
Too often, a reduced-fat or reduced-calorie dish also suffers from a reduction in flavor. We were determined to avoid this trap when we replaced full-fat cheese with reduced-fat cheese and chicken thighs with chicken breasts in our Reduced-Fat Chicken and Cheese Enchiladas. The answer is a flavorful infusion of chipotles in adobo, a high-impact ingredient that lends smokiness, spiciness, sweetness, and tang to the tomato-based sauce. A quick 1-minute zap in the microwave softens the tortillas just enough to make them pliable.
