Made this today and loved it. Because I was wanting to use it for enchiladas I only used 500 grams of diced chicken, replaced the refried-beans with cannellini beans because kids prefer them, added extra chili flakes, we like spice and a grated zucchini. Put it all in my 3L and cooked on high for 1 1/2 hours. Once cooked wrapped in mini tortillas with a little grated cheese. Placed in 7L sc and topped with salsa and a little cheese and cooked on high for 1 1/2 hours. Served with a dollop of sour cream
