Bounty Fresh Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas: Who Can Resist This Cheesy Creation?

August 15, 2019

Mexican food has quickly become beloved by Filipinos, because of it’s flavors that are tuned to our palate—there’s salty, sour, and always an extra kick of spice.

We love our tacos, our burritos and our enchiladas and there have been more and more Mexican joints popping up in the city. However, you don’t have to visit the next taqueria to get your fix of Mexican cuisine’s punchy, robust cuisine.

Enchiladas can be made with beef or beans, but we’ve made these using Bounty Fresh chicken breasts. Filled with refried beans and cheese, jalapeños, cilantro and a thick, tomatoey enchilada sauce, it’s a fully loaded dish that packs all the flavors we love from Mexico.

The chicken absorbs the juices from the sauce and the rest of the filling, so it becomes incredibly tasty meat, bursting with the complexity of onion, tomato and oregano from the sauce, and the spice and sourness of jalapeños.

Baked in the oven, these chicken and cheese enchiladas, are a rich gooey mess that will get you hooked, a recipe that you’re bound to repeat again and again.
