Budget Meals: Chicken Enchiladas

Quesadillas are an easy to make family approved meal and this recipe is using the leftover chicken and rice from the enchiladas we made earlier this week. Note: chicken could be left out and the full can of black beans could be used to cut down on cost or please a plant-based diet.


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Brush a 9″ x 13″ baking dish with olive oil.
  2. Cook rice according to package directions.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine chicken, rice, beans, corn, taco seasoning and 1 cup of cheese. Season with salt to taste.
  4. Spoon ⅓ cup of the rice mixture along the centre of a tortilla. Roll up tightly, and place seam-side-down in the prepared baking dish. Repeat with the remaining tortillas, tightly tucking each enchilada beside the next.
  5. Pour the enchilada sauce over and sprinkle the remaining cheese on top. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until the sauce bubbles.
  6. Garnish with avocado and cilantro. Serve with sour cream and lime on the side.
