Chicken Garlic Hummus Enchiladas

I have a certain "someone" in my house that will eat hummus from the tub with a spoon...yes, straight out of the tub with a spoon. He LOVES his hummus. So when I came across this recipe, I was like, holy cow, I HAVE to make this! I wish I would have come up with this recipe, but I didn't, yet I know I must share with y'all! Thank God for! Putting hummus in a Chicken Enchilada? Crazy talk, right? But OH so good! The only addition I made to this recipe was to add some corn to the enchiladas, use my own Easy Chicken Breasts recipe (shredded) and of course.....more cheese! You know me! I LOVE cheese! Make this tonight and I promise you won't be disappointed! For complete recipe without photos, click here: Chicken Garlic Hummus Enchiladas Recipe

1 cup rice
2 tablespoons lime juice
(I used the juice from 2 limes)
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1-2 tablespoons of butter/margarine
5 medium (soft taco sized) flour tortillas
1 cup Roasted Garlic Hummus 
3 cups (12 oz) shredded chicken Easy Chicken Breasts
2 cups shredded cheese
or MORE!
1 can sweet corn, drained
10 oz enchilada sauce

1) Preheat oven to 375°F.
2) Spray a 9x13 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.

3) In a bowl, mix rice, salt, lime juice and 2 cups water in a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 14 minutes. 

Remove from heat, stir in cilantro, butter/margarine and set aside. You can also use a rice cooker, which is what I did. Makes life a lot easier!!!

Stir in Butter/Margarine until smooth.

4) Spread each tortilla with about 1-2 tablespoons of the garlic hummus.

5) Top with about 2 tablespoons of rice.

6) Top with about 1 tablespoon of corn.

7) Top with about 1/4 cup of chicken.

8) Top with about 1/4 cup of shredded cheese.

9) Roll the enchilada up, making sure the ends are tucked inside.

10) You should be able to fit about 5-6 enchiladas in one baking dish.

11) Top the enchiladas with a can of the enchilada red sauce.

12) Cover the enchiladas with MORE cheese!

13) Bake for about 12-15 minutes at 375°F, until they start to brown and ENJOY!
