I first used it to make some pulled pork sandwiches. I used the rub on the pork loin, let it sit overnight, then stuck it in the crockpot, shredded and added more BBQ sauce. Delicious!
Then I saw another perfect opportunity for this sauce. Enchiladas. My favorite.
These turned out perfectly! Higher in calories than I usually like but they were certainly worth it.
This recipe is doubled, we put 10 enchiladas in a 9 x 13 pan and 5 in a 8 x 8 pan to freeze for later.
BBQ Chicken Enchiladas
Adapted from How Sweet It Is
3 lbs. boneless chicken, cooked and shredded
3 (28 oz) cans red enchilada sauce
1 cup BBQ Sauce (I used Butch's, use whatever you would like)
1 large sweet onion
2 tbsp. BBQ Seasoning (I used Butch's)
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper (more to taste)
8 oz. cheddar cheese
4 oz. colby jack cheese
15 - 100 calorie whole wheat tortillas
Heat onions in small bit of cooking spray in a non stick pan for about 7 - 10 minutes until soft. While onions are cooking, dump enchilada sauce into a bowl and whisk in your favorite BBQ sauce until combined.
Add shredded chicken to onions with BBQ seasoning and cayenne pepper. Mix thoroughly. Pour in about 1 1/2 cups of enchilada/BBQ sauce mixture and add 1/2 of the cheese. Stir until combined and melted.
Pour a drizzle of sauce in the bottom of a baking dish. Take each tortilla and fill it with about 1/3 of a cup of chicken mixture. Roll each up and set it in the baking dish. Dump remaining enchilada sauce on top of tortillas and add remaining cheese. Bake at 375 for 25 minutes.
