Chicken & Black Bean Enchiladas

Recipe From: Jasmin Adams
I loved these! Not so much an enchilada, but for me...the perfect bite burrito.
1 can black beans (drained and rinsed)
2 cups chicken breast (cooked and shredded)
8 oz pepper-jack cheese (shredded)
2 cups white or brown rice (cooked)
10 flour tortillas
1 red onion (chopped)
28 oz medium green chile enchilada sauce

Note: this is more of an ingredient list with approximations of amount than an exact recipe; how much you need will vary by how much of each ingredient you use in each tortilla. You can sprinkle any extra cheese and onions on top. Or if I use too much cheese in each, I add some cheddar cheese or a jack cheese blend on top.

Preheat oven to 350. Layer rice, beans, chicken, onions and cheese in each tortilla and roll. Pour enchilada sauce over tortillas. Bake at least 30 minutes, until hot and bubbly. In my opinion, the longer the better because the onions get tastier the longer they cook.

To make this dish more kid-friendly (less spicy), use mild enchilada sauce and jack cheese.
