Gluten Free Chicken & Sweet Potato Enchiladas

By 12:52 PM ,
If you're looking for something easy and healthy for dinner tonight try this!!   We cook a whole chicken each week so I always freeze some for fast dinners.  Love all the flavors and combinations you can throw into Mexican dishes!    Question of the day-  What's the easiest recipe you use over and over?  
This post Featured on Linda's wonderful  Gluten Free Wednesdays!

  • Ingredients:
  • 2 cups cooked sweet potato, mashed  (I microwave a large sweet potato, cool and peel)
  • 1 cup canned black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 cups cooked chicken, shredded
  • 2-3 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • juice of 1/2 of a lime
  • 1-2 teaspoons GF chili powder- to taste.   I use McCormicks
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups GF enchilada sauce
  • 1 cup pineapple chunks, drained and chopped
  • 1 jalapeno,  seeded and diced
  • 10 GF corn tortillas
  • Reduced fat sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon coarsely chopped cilantro
  • Avocado slices and the other 1/2 of the lime, for garnish


Heat oven to 400 degrees F.

  1. In a large bowl, stir together shredded chicken, sweet potato, black beans, 1 cup cheese, chili powder, juice of 1/2 a lime and salt until well combined.
  2. Pour some of the sauce into the 13x9-inch baking dish. 
  3. Fry tortillas in a little oil until just browned – about 1 minute. 
  4. Place about 1/2 cup sweet potato mixture on one side of a tortilla, roll up, and place in baking dish; repeat process with remaining sweet potato mixture and tortillas.
  5. Drizzle remaining enchilada sauce on top of tortillas, and top with pineapple, jalapeno and sprinkle with remaining 1 cup cheese. Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly.
  6. Serve with cilantro, lime and sour cream.

Makes 4-6 servings

  1. This looks delicious! I would not have thought to add sweet potatoes and pineapple to enchiladas. What a great idea.

  2. Hi Linda! isn't it fun to throw the whole kitchen sink in? I do that with pizza too and love the results. Have you tried the Cauliflower pizza crust yet? It's to die for! Thanks for commenting sweetie, have a wonderful day. hugs
