Project 31: Day 11

Day 11. Post a recipe. Or if you don't cook, try a new recipe and write about how it turned out (pictures please!).

This is one of Will's favorite meals. I haven't made it in awhile so pictures will have to wait :(

Layered Chicken and Black Bean Enchilada Casserole


  • 2 cups shredded chicken breast
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro
  • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 (7 ounce) can diced green chile peppers, drained
  • 1 (10 ounce) can red enchilada sauce
  • 8 (6 inch) flour tortillas
  • 2 cups shredded Mexican blend cheese
  • 1 (8 ounce) container sour cream


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat, and spray with vegetable cooking spray. Saute chicken with cumin and coriander until chicken is cooked through. Transfer to a medium bowl. Stir in the cilantro, black beans, and green chile peppers.
  3. Spread half of the enchilada sauce over the bottom of an 11x7 inch baking dish. Place 4 tortillas over the sauce, overlapping if necessary. Spoon half of the chicken mixture over the tortillas, and sprinkle with half of the cheese and half of the sour cream. Spoon the remaining enchilada sauce over the cheese, and make another layer of tortillas. Layer the remaining chicken mixture over the tortillas. Cover dish with a lid or aluminum foil.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven. Remove the cover, and sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top and dot with sour cream. Continue cooking, uncovered, for an additional 5 to 10 minutes, or until cheese melts. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
