1 1/4 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breasts
3 slices bacon
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1 1/2 cups salsa, divided
1 (15-ounce) can black beans, undrained
1 red or green bell pepper, seeded and chopped, optional
1 teaspoon ground cumin
Salt and pepper to taste
1 bunch green onions, chopped
12 (6-8-inch) flour tortillas
6 ounces reduced-fat Monterrey Jack cheese, shredded


Preheat oven 350ºF. Cut chicken into chunks; set aside.
2. Cook bacon in a skillet until crisp. Remove to paper towel and discard any grease in skillet. In same skillet, coated with nonstick cooking spray, sauté garlic and chicken until chicken is almost done, 5-7 minutes.
3. Stir in 1/2 cup salsa, bell pepper, the beans, cumin, salt, and pepper. Simmer until thickened, 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until chicken is done. Stir in green onions and bacon.
4. Divide chicken-bean mixture among 12 tortillas, placing mixture down center of each tortilla. Top with shredded cheese. Roll up and place seam-side down in 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking dish coated with nonstick cooking spray.
5. Spoon remaining 1 cup salsa evenly over the enchiladas. Top with remaining cheese. Bake 15 minutes, or until thoroughly heated and the cheese is melted.





Quick Tip: Serve with ranch or sour cream for a cool and creamy dip!
