Chicken Enchilada Vegetable Bake (Grain-free)

In the mood for a little Mexican cuisine???  
Well, of course you are otherwise you wouldn’t even be here 😉

I totally love Mexican food and could probably eat it just about everyday.
One of my favorites are chips and salsa!!
Well, I can still have the salsa (I have a great recipe) but sadly not the corn chips anymore 🙁
Grains don’t agree with me and I have a lot of digestion issues when I eat them.
So I am learning how to make a lot of  delicious grain free recipes like this one

( feel free to check out more recipes on the
blog while your here 🙂 )

Ingredients:
2- pounds organic boneless, skinless chicken thighs
12- ounces organic tomato sauce or you could even use your favorite spaghetti sauce
3/4 cup water
4 Tablespoons chili powder
1/4 tsp.cumin powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon celtic seasalt
2 teaspoons arrowroot starch or gmo-free cornstarch

2 cups fresh chopped spinach
1 medium size diced bell pepper
2 medium sized tomatoes diced
1 large avocado cut up into small pieces
1/2 can sliced black olives

Optional: 2 cups grated  organic cheddar cheese

Instructions:
Place your chicken in a baking dish with 3/4 cup water.
Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
When done, let cool for about 30 minutes before cutting into small bite size pieces.
Next, add in tomato or spaghetti sauce, seasonings and salt with 2 teaspoons either
arrowroot starch or gmo- free cornstarch to help thicken the juices.
Mix together very well.
Bake for an additional 25- 30 minutes at 350 degrees.

 Note:
If using cheese sprinkle on top the last 10 minutes of baking.

Take out when done.
Next top immediately with all the  fresh vegetables.
It is now ready to serve and eat!!
This is an incredibly delicious and healthy  Mexican dish I am sure you and your whole family will love.
I also love to top mine with my own homemade salsa too!
