Asda Meal For Two Chicken Enchiladas
Advantages: tasty, flavoursome, price, plenty of filling, easy to prepare
Disadvantages: messy to serve,more cheese needed, high calories
The Asda Chicken Enchiladas are located in the fresh, ready meals section.
A tray with a plastic film and outer cardboard sleeve holds two enchiladas. Asda describe this meal (which is suitable for two people) as..
'Soft flour tortillas stuffed with tender chicken breast, rice and peppers in a spicy tomato and mascarpone sauce, topped with tomato salsa, cheddar and jalapenos'
The enchiladas are part of the 'Chosen By You' range at Asda. They contain no artificial flavours, colours or hydrogenated fats. The ingredients list is huge but it is worth noting that there is 27% chicken breast, 16% white rice and 64% enchilada and filling.
~Cooking and Nutrition~
These enchiladas can be cooked in the oven at 200c. The film should be pierced and the tray should be put in the oven for 10minutes. After 10minutes, remove the film and return to the oven for 15minutes. Serve hot.
Each enchilada contains 421 calories, 6.5g of sugar and 7.4g of saturated fat. There is also 2.4g of salt.
Available in store or online (www.asda.com) in a 450g pack. These enchiladas are priced at £2.50 per pack.
Whilst I cook a lot of meals from fresh now, I like to keep bits in the fridge which can be quickly made without too much hassle or effort. I used to buy the enchilada 'do it yourself' kits but they work out expensive once all the ingredients are bought and often the complete meal would be too much for just me and my fiance. I now buy these enchiladas regularly as my fiance loves them and I quite like them too. At £2.50 they aren't badly priced. I serve ours with potato wedges and sometimes a little sour cream sauce.
They are easy to prepare and I can put our wedges on the same baking tray to ensure everything is cooked at the same time. Uncooked. the meal looks fine. The enchiladas are a decent size - long and quite plump. They are filled well and look substantial. There is a small amount of grated cheese, a tomato type sauce and a few jalapenos across the top of the tortillas. I occasionally add a bit of extra cheese but not always. After the 10minutes is up, I spread the topping across the top of the enchiladas before popping back in the oven.
Once cooked, the enchiladas smell lovely look golden brown. One issue we have (every time) is removing them from the tray. The tray is made of foil and there isn't much room to scoop out using a spatula. The enchiladas fall apart every time and 'split' so presentation is very messy! Not something I would personally serve to guests as it does look a bit sloppy.
These enchiladas aren't the healthiest but are really delicious to eat. The filling is really good and they don't skimp on chicken. Each enchilada is crammed with tender chicken pieces which are pleasant to eat and quite filling. The tortilla wraps are slightly crisp on top but quite soggy from the filling underneath. The fillings is quite mild considering there are lots of green and red peppers included and has a lovely tomato/garlic flavouring with a hint of spice. The cheese isn't very strong in taste in my opinion.
The sauce covering the filling is of a medium consistency and coats and flavours the filling well. My fiance likes these enchiladas as they have rice and I must say the rice bulks out the enchilada a little and is soft and fluffy. The only time I experience much 'warmth' is when my mouth comes into contact with a jalapeño. There are only a few but they do burn my tongue so I try to avoid eating them where possible!
These enchiladas with some potato wedges, make for a good meal which is incredibly filling. The overall enchilada is full of flavour and very satisfying to eat. I can recommend them for a quick meal as it works out so much cheaper than buying the kit, chicken, peppers and cheese separate.
Thanks for reading :)
Summary: good enough for us!
