Meat from two bone-in chicken breasts ( approx. 2 -3 cups) , shredded ( I used breast meat from rotisserie chicken )

1 med. zucchini, shredded

1 cup onion, diced

1 clove garlic, minced

4 TBS. chipotle salsa ( or more or less to taste) 

1 tsp. ground cumin 

salt and pepper, to taste

2 - 3 TBS. fat free, low sodium chicken broth ( just enough to moisten filling mixture) 

1/4 cup cilantro, chopped ( optional )

8 whole wheat/low carb tortillas ( or any kind that are 2p+ each) 

2- 10 oz. cans of red enchilada sauce, hot or mild, your choice ( I used Old El Paso -hot) 

4 oz. reduced-fat Mexican blend cheese

fat free sour cream, scallion, for garnish ( optional and NOT included in nut info)


1.  In a large nonstick skillet, sprayed with cooking spray, over medium heat, saute onion and garlic until tender, about 5 minutes.  Add in the chicken, zucchini, chipotle salsa, cumin, and salt and pepper.  Stir well.  Add in the chicken broth, if needed, just to moisten filling.  Turn off heat, and add in the cilantro.  Set aside and allow to cool for 10 minutes.  

2.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  Spray a 9 x 13" glass baking dish with cooking spray.  Pour one can of enchilada sauce in bottom.  Tip dish to coat evenly. 

3.  To assemble enchiladas, take a tortilla and put approx. 1/3 cup of meat mixture down middle in a strip.  Top with some of the cheese.  ( divide the cheese evenly amongst the 8 enchiladas, reserving about 3 TBS. for the top)  Roll up and place in prepared dish, seam side down.  Repeat with remaining tortillas.  

4.  Pour the other can of the enchilada sauce on top of the rolled up enchiladas.  Top with the remaining cheese.  Cover tightly with aluminum foil.  

5.  Bake for 30 -40 minutes, or until enchiladas are heated through and the cheese is melted.  Top with fat free sour cream and scallions if desired.
