1 can diced green chiles

1 1/3 cups shredded Monterey jack

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and saute 2 minutes.

Add chicken and saute 5 minutes, until golden brown and cooked through.

Stir in black beans, green chiles, and salsa and simmer 5 minutes, until sauce thickens.

Remove from heat and stir in cilantro.

Arrange 4 tortillas on a flat surface.

Top each tortilla with an equal amount of chicken mixture. Roll up tortillas and place side by side in a shallow baking dish.

Top tortillas with shredded cheese and salsa.

Bake enchiladas 15 minutes.

These are really easy enchiladas that are delicious. They satisfy my craving for Mexican food and are so easy to make.

I am confused. Do you keep the chicken breasts whole or do you dice, shred or what? Also, you mention salsa twice - once in the sauce and once on top. What about the amouts on these?
