In the mean time prepare the vegetables. Cut the peppers in small strips.

Warm up a deeper pan. Add some oil and fry the chicken for around 15 min under the lid. This way chicken will keep all the aromas and it will stay tender. Add peppers and after 5 min add corn. Mix it well together. Add tomato paste mixed with a little bit of water, salt and pepper. Let it simmer for 5 min.

Slice in small peaces. Mix it with creme fraiche.

Fill tortillas with the chicken mix. Add some chicken mix in the center of tortillas and top with a tsp of creme fraiche and grated cheese. Roll tortilla to make an enchilada, as a pancake leaving the edges open. Place enchilada in the oven proof dish and repeat the process with the rest. Top tortillas with the creme fraiche mixture and rest of grated cheese.

Bake in the oven for 20-30 min, or until the topped cheese gets nice golden color. Prepare your salad.
