It’s summer. And you know what teens love to do in the summer? Not stay home, that’s what. My daughter, Amber, is always anxious to get out the door to her next fun time with her friends. But we still need to make sure that she has a tasty and nutritious meal in her belly – and Tyson helps us do just that.

Cheesy Enchiladas For A Teen On The Go

When Chatty Cathy gets a text, she doesn’t have time to play. It’s time for a fast meal so she can get out the door. STAT!

In our home, we are all big fans of Mexican food, especially enchiladas. We like to make our own version with flavored wraps. We like Sun-Dried Tomato Basil and Garden Spinach Herb. Enchiladas are super easy to make, which might be what Amber likes most. You can make them a variety of ways, but Amber likes to make hers by laying out one of the flavored wraps on a plate, adding a few Tyson Chicken Fries and cheese {she uses a variety of different cheeses, depending on what we have on hand} to it, rolling the whole concoction up, and adding more cheese to the top. Then she throws it all in the microwave for about a minute or two and basically runs out the door with it! Nice to see you, too, Amber. 😉

Chicken Enchiladas For The Slightly Less On The Go Parents

Jay and I like to live at a bit of a slower pace when possible, so we like to enjoy our enchiladas a bit differently. We use the same wraps, though we sometimes go for plain, and we sometimes add different ingredients besides just the Tyson Chicken Fries and cheese. I especially enjoy onions and jalapenos in my enchilada and Jay really likes onions and hot sauce. We both love salsa, diced tomatoes and habaneros and I also love sour cream. We really just like to change it up.

  1. Yum! I love Mexican food with tons of cheese on it. Thanks for the recipe. It sounds like a simple, healthy inexpensive meal.

  2. Yum!

  3. So glad you can get Chatty Cathy to eat a good meal before heading out the door! Love it!

  4. Mexican is one of my fave meals to make at home. Your pictures are awesome and I would love to eat that meal!

  5. This is my husband’s absolute favorite meal! Quick and easy is the way to go.

  6. My husband would love these – the more vegetables the better and the more jalapenos the better! I never would have thought of making refried beans. Thanks for the lesson.

  7. This looks so good, and so easy! The two requirements I need for a meal 🙂

  8. I have never tried making my own refried beans, will have to do that. My hubby loves them! I love the “chatty cathy” thing too, lol… I can just imagine. My daughter is 4 but we’ll be there soon enough!

  9. I have never even considered making my own refried beans. Thanks for the recipe and easy to follow tips. We love enchiladas!

  10. Love the different ideas for the teens and the adults and I never even dreamed of making my own refried beans. I don’t eat them myself, but Hubby loves them and my Grandpa loves them – I might have to surprise them both and try it sometime!

    • Dawn McAlexander says:

      I think they are better if you make them yourself. There is something that I just don’t love about the ones you get in a can.

  11. We have eaten enchiladas before but I have never thought of making my own. I will surely keep this recipe so next time we are hungry for them I can make some. Thanks so much for the recipe.

  12. Jenna Wood says:

    What a great way to use Tyson Chicken Fires, in enchiladas! I love simple meals for the hectic nights during the week when all of the family barely has a moment to sit down 🙂

  13. Looks like a great dish for a busy teen. I think my hubby and I would like this one too. Very cool way to use the Tyson Chicken fries. I always love to use products in ways I have not thought of before.

    • Dawn McAlexander says:

      Thank you! Tyson Chicken Fries can be used so many different ways. 🙂

  14. Why does that have to look SO good? Why did I happen on this post when I started back on my diet today!!! lol Now my mouth is watering! What a great recipe!

  15. This looks so delicious and now I am hungry! This is perfect for busy teens!

  16. I love enchiladas and refried beans, have never made my own on the beans but it looks so easy! Time to try maybe 🙂

  17. looks delicious. I will be right over for dinner!!

  18. mm these look and sound yummy 🙂

  19. Sherry Compton says:

    This is a meal for me and my family. I’m a mix of your and Amber’s style. I like salsa and sour cream but cheese upon cheese. I bake mine with cheese then make a cheese sauce to pour over at the end. I haven’t tried making refried beans before but your recipe sounds good. I will have to add it to my next Mexican meal.

    • Dawn McAlexander says:

      We sometimes pour cheese sauce over the top of the enchiladas, too. 🙂 Yum!

  20. YUM! That looks great! Pinning! =)

  21. I love enchiladas. Beef, cheese, it’s all good.

  22. Judy Gregory says:

    I’m gonna try your recipe for re-fried beans. The canned ones have so much fat.

  23. Alison Gibb says:

    This looks totally delicious! Thank you for the recipe!
