Caputio’s Black Bean Enchiladas
I was watching KSL Channel 5 years ago and Chief Caputo was on making these. I knew I had to try them. They are amazing!
3/4 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into thin strips
6 slices bacon
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 cup picante sauce or salsa
1 16oz can black beans
1 large red bell pepper
1 t. ground cumin
1/4 t. salt
1/2 cup green onions, sliced
12 flour tortillas
1 1/2 cup cheddar cheese – shredded
Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium heat. Remove bacon from skillet to paper towel to drain.
Pour off all but 3 tablespoons of the bacon drippings. Return skillet to medium heat, add the chicken & garlic, cook until chicken is done.
Stir in salsa beans, red pepper, cumin and salt. Simmer until thickened, about 8 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Stir in green onions and reserved bacon, crumbling bacon.
Lay out tortilla and spoon in about 1/4 cup of the bean mixture in center of tortilla. Top with cheese and roll-up.
Place seam side down in a casserole. Top with extra cheese and salsa. Repeat until mixture and tortillas are gone.
Heat in a 350 degree oven for about 15 minutes and serve with sour cream and guacamole.
I can tell you that these are so worth the trouble. The mix of favors are amazing.
