  • 1 tin (425g) Old El Paso™ Black Beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 tablespoons Old El Paso™ Sliced Green Jalapeños, drained and chopped
  • 1 jar (344g) Old El Paso™ Cooking Sauce for Enchiladas
  • 1 pack Old El Paso™ Super Soft Corn Tortillas
  • 200g ready grated pizza cheese (or a mix of grated Cheddar and Mozzarella cheeses)
  • 150g pot soured cream

To Serve

  • Old El Paso™ Original Nachips™
  • Sliced tomatoes


  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC (160ºC for fan assisted ovens), gas mark 4. Mix together the chicken coriander, black beans and jalapeños in a medium bowl.
  2. Spread 2 tablespoons of the enchilada sauce in the base of a lightly greased 20cm x 30cm baking dish. Place four of the tortillas on top, overlapping as necessary. Spoon half the chicken mixture over the tortillas and sprinkle with half the grated cheese.
  3. Spoon half of the remaining enchilada sauce and half the soured cream randomly over the cheese. Repeat the layers once more. Cover loosely with greased foil.
  4. Bake for 30-35 minutes, removing the foil for the last 10 minutes of cooking time. Stand for 5 minutes before serving with Nachips™ and sliced tomatoes.
