Microwave Chicken Enchiladas
1/2 Rotisserie chicken, meat shredded, skin and bones discarded
1 (15-ounce) can Pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1 (4-ounce) can Green chilies

In a large bowl, combine the chicken, beans, green chilies, scallions and half of the cheese. Season with salt and pepper.

Grease an 11x7-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Pour ½ cup of the enchilada sauce in the bottom of the baking dish.

Scoop about ½ cup of chicken mixture into each tortilla and place seam-side down. Repeat with remaining tortillas and filling.

Pour the remaining enchilada sauce over the top of the tortillas. Top with the remaining half of the cheese.

Microwave covered with a microwave-safe plate or plastic wrap on high for 6 to 7 minutes, then uncover and microwave for a minute longer to further melt the cheese.

Serve garnished with pico de gallo, cilantro, sour cream and scallions.
