Clean Chicken Enchilladas

So cudios to my roommate from college Bekah, for making these for me all the time.  Bad thing is they were NOT healthy, but tasted amazing and fresh.  I decided to tweak the recipe a bit, and Justin loved them;) BTW like i have said a million times always have your meats cooked in bulk, I had Justin grill a few chicken breast early in the week and i use it to make different meals.

- 1 cooked chicken breast chopped into small pieces
-1/2 cup mixed cheese
-1 small can diced green chilies drained
-corn tortillas
-greek yogurt, plain
-salsa verde

1. in a medium sized bowl mix chopped chicken, cheese, and green chilies, mix well.
2. heat corn tortillas 4 at a time in a wet paper towel for 30 seconds in microwave.
3. stuff tortillas with chicken mixture and roll up, place opening on bottom of pan.
4. drizzle with olive oil and bake on 350 for about 15-20 minutes until golden brown.
5. in a separate bowel add greek yogurt and salsa verde, half and half until it makes a nice consistency.
6. once enchiladas are done and crispy, top with verde sauce and top with tomatoes, cilantro, and avocado.  

Sweet Potato Brownies

Okay, so i'm such a foodie and i'm always looking for CLEAN way to get my cravings in.  This was my most recent experiment, since this I have made 2 batches:/ haha.  Reminder**No sugar added, how amazing!

-2 sweet potatoes
-2/3 melted coconut oil
-1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder(I like chocolate)
-2 eggs
-2 containers of unsweetened apple sauce
-2 tablespoons of coconut flour(i'm sure you could use almond flour here too)
-1/2 tsp cinnamon

1. cover sweet potatoes and put in 400 degree over for about 30-40 minutes until soft, once cooked puree in bowl, without skin.
2. once pureed add wet ingredients and whisk
3. slowly add dry ingredients, mix well
4. will be thick!
5. add parchment paper to baking sheet.
6. spread mixture and bake 20-30 minutes until done.
