Cook on low heat for two minutes stirring constantly and then add the rest of the stock. Continue to heat and stir for about 5-10 minutes until sauce thickens.
  3. Assemble the enchiladas by spooning a small amount of bean mix down the centre of each tortilla and top with optional diced chicken meat. Roll, cut in half and place seam side down in individual foil containers.
  4. Top each with some of the Enchilada sauce and grated cheese. Bake in a 180degC oven for about 15 minutes.
  5. Allow to rest for a few minutes before topping with some sour cream and sprinkle of paprika or chopped shallots.

Variations

The Mexican Bean mix can be made in large batches and frozen in advance. This same recipe is also suitable for use in Burritos or as a topping for nachos, potato skins or wedges so is very versatile and can be used to offer a number of choices on your menu. A halved tortilla fits perfectly into a square foil tray as pictured.
