Chicken Enchiladas

This is a recipe that I just made up myself this evening. It went down very well with all 3 children and husband! Clean plates all round. You can make this as spicy as you like, but I wanted it to be child-friendly and my children dont like a lot of spice :(  You can hide a lot of vegetables in this though!
4 chicken breasts
1 red pepper
1 onion
1 tin chopped tomatoes
1 small tin sweetcorn
Pinch garlic powder
Pinch ground cumin
Pinch ground coriander
Pinch chilli powder
3 tsp sugar
Pinch salt
Pinch black pepper
Pinch smoked paprika
6 tortilla wraps
Shredded lettuce
1 tub soured cream
Crispy onions (optional, we love them in our house and use them for toppping everything)
Plenty of grated cheese!

Slice the chicken breasts into think strips. Slice the onion & pepper into strips. Gently brown the chicken in some olive oil. Add the onion & pepper & sweat for 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes, sweetcorn & spices and simmer gently for 15 mins. 

Add some lettuce to the middle of the tortilla wrap, a ladle of the chicken mix & a sprinkle of cheese, then wrap & place into a lasagne dish. Do this for all 6 wraps, and nestle in the dish side by side. Pour over the sour cream and sprinkle over the rest of the cheese. Sprinkle on the crispy onions if using. Pop in the oven at 200 for about 15 mins or until the cheese is is bubbling & melted.
