Melissa's Story

Fast and yummy cheesy chicken enchiladas. I like to use chicken cooked in a crock pot because it's easier to shred.

Ingredients

1 medium
chicken (cooked in a crock pot), shredded
1 can(s)
verde sauce
1 can(s)
enchilada sauce
8 oz
cheddar cheese, shredded
1 jar(s)
nacho cheese
12 medium
warmed corn tortillas
sour cream- optional

Directions Step-By-Step

1
PREHEAT OVEN TO 275 DEGREES. Debone chicken and shred. I like to use chicken slow cooked in a crock pot because it makes the shredding process so much easier, but you can use cook your chicken in a pot. (Be sure to save your broth for other recipes!) Place shredded chicken in a large bowl and mix all verde sauce and 4oz of shredded cheese.
2
Spoon in heaping portions of chicken mixture in middle of tortilla. Place in a baking pan, seam down.
3
Once pan is filled with enchilladas, pour enchilada sauce all over. Be sure to cover every tortilla.
4
Pour nacho cheese all over. Sprinkle remaining shredded cheese. Cover with foil and bake for 30 to 40 minutes. Enjoy the cheesy goodness!
