CINCO DE MAYO NATIONAL ENCHILADA DAY AND NATIONAL HOAGIE DAY AND TOTALLY CHIPOTLE DAY!
Whether you’re of the mindset of Cinco de Mayo,
or Cinco de Cuatro,
we’ve got you covered. After all, what better way to celebrate an inauthentically Mexican “holiday” with inauthentically Mexican food?
Today we mashed up all three holidays into one, and we’ve made something truly beautiful. It’s also very low calorie, and VERY tasty. So have at it!
First up, the enchilada sauce. This puppy is 5 calories for 2 Tbsp. That’s reeeeally low for sauces like this. Plus, it’s got the Chipotle we need for Totally Chipotle Day!
Next: The “tortillas.” These 60 calorie wraps are amazing. They are really the only ones we’ve tasted that are even worthwhile substituting for regular tortillas.
Brush very lightly with olive oil, and bake at 300F for about 3 minutes.
This is some Tyson Grilled & Ready Chicken, shredded up and mixed with a bit of the sauce.
A little bit of Sargento 2%-milk 4-cheese Mexican Blend…
About 1/4 cup of chicken…
Roll it up and place it in a 9×9 pan that has 3/4 cup of the enchilada sauce at the bottom.
Cover with the rest of the sauce and the cheese.
Bake at 400 for 15-20 minutes! Enchiladas are done!
Okay. So you’re gonna think we’re crazy, but stick with us. This is about to get seriously amazing. As if those enchiladas weren’t super tasty enough…
Fry up some onions and peppers with some salt, pepper, and cayenne first. We’ll need them.
Toast a hoagie roll. We used Pepperidge Farms.
These little guacs are terrific. Very tasty, preportioned, and low calorie!
Spread some of dat on dere.
Onions and peppers.
Enchilada – this is one enchilada out of the 8, cut in half.
A totally chipotle enchilada hoagie!
My god it was amazing. And we have leftovers! Enchiladas make for great leftovers. AK‘s favorite part was the chicken and cheese inside of the enchiladas. SP loved picking the whole thing up and stuffing it in his face.
Here at SPAK, we say, “You’re welcome.” Go out and enjoy your enchiladas!
Tomorrow is Crepes Suzette Day, Beverage Day, and International No Diet Day.
