PLEASE MAKE THESE Chipotle Chicken, Mango and Black Bean Enchiladas! And if you think mangos and enchiladas are an odd combo, trust me! More on that later…
I honestly can’t remember the last time I begged you to make a recipe. Was it as long ago as my Skinny General Tso’s Chicken? I don’t remember. But then again, I don’t remember much (as explained by my brain hemorrhage here).
But even if I had just begged you to make a recipe last week because I know it would fill you your belly with pleasure and your soul with joy, I would still beg you again to make these Chipotle Chicken, Mango and Black Bean Enchiladas because these are one of the tastiest foods you will eat in your ENTIRE LIFE. No joke. No Lie. No exaggeration.
As hard as it is to rival my Salsa Verde Honey Lime Pepper Jack Chicken Enchiladas (and for those of you who have tried them, you know exactly what I am talking about), these enchiladas are just as delicious, in my opinion.
First you mix an array of spices (chipotle powder, smoked paprika, cumin, chili powder – YUM!) that will be used throughout the enchiladas (no double measuring!), then you rub the chicken with olive oil and spices and cook in Coke and soy sauce so the chicken alone is so tender and flavorful you are going to have to stop yourself from eating it all.
Then you saute black beans and mangos in the same skillet to soak up all the flavor and finally combine the chipotle chicken, black beans, mangos, Monterrey Jack Cheese and some Chipotle Coke Red Enchilada Sauce all together to become your filling. And if you are intimidated by cutting mangos – do’t be, just check out my How to Cut A Mango Post that teaches everything you could ever want to know about mangos!
Just look at that filling. The sweet and savory layers going on here are worth me begging you to eat this!
The Chipotle Red Coke Enchilada Sauce alone is seriously to live for! Its sweet, spicy and smokey – way better than any canned enchilada sauce.
The sweet and spicy enchiladas paired with sweet and refreshing mangos are divine. If you like mangos, I promise you will love the flavor combo! Just think of how delicious mango salsa is (sweet and spicy) or mangos and chili powder (again sweet and spicy).
I fell in love with this mango/coke sweet and spicy flavor combo in my Chipotle Coke Mango Black Bean Chili and I immediately wanted to create another recipe using the same flavor profile. I actually created these enchiladas immediately after the chili months and months ago, but I have been holding out on you. I apologize.
