Ok I have made a few versions of Buffalo Chicken Enchilada Recipes from the net and well now they all have been more of a chicken enchilada and no so much a Buffalo Chicken Wing style flavor. So as I have learned over many years of cooking it is always better to just make it up as you go along! I knew the taste I wanted so with much head scratching and rummaging into the spices I decided I would just make it this way. I know it looks like a lot of ingredients but it really is just spices I make my own wing sauce. You can sub all that for 1 cup of Texas Pete Mild Wing Sauce!

How to Make Buffalo Chicken Wing Enchiladas

Step-by-Step

  • 1Slice chicken breast into very thin slices (I leave mine half frozen and this makes it to where you can slice it paper thin.
  • 2In a skillet heat oil and add chicken and fry until done and liquid has mostly absorbed.
  • 3IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO MAKE THE SAUCE INTO THE CHICKEN.....

    Add 1 cup wing sauce I use Texas Pete Mild Wing Sauce so I am sure it will replace nicely. So skip butter, hot sauce, vinegar and all the spices. Start back with the cream cheese and follow through rest of ingredients.
  • 4Add hot sauce, vinegar and spices. Salt and pepper to taste.
  • 5Cut up cream cheese into small pieces and add to chicken mixture. Let melt and mix into chicken thoroughly.
  • 6Add lime juice and again mix thoroughly. Turn off heat and let hang out in pan while you make white sauce.
  • 7WHITE CHILIES SAUCE
  • 8Melt butter in medium sauce pan
  • 9Add flour and stir cook low heat 2 mins to kick the raw taste from the flour without browning.
  • 10Add 1 cup chicken stock or broth stir until it starts to thicken.
  • 11Add 1 cup sour cream and stir
  • 12Add whole can of Chilies and stir let simmer on lowest heat while you assemble the Enchiladas.
  • 13Open bag of 8 inch flour tortillas and heat in microwave 35 seconds to soften. Leave in bag to do this
  • 14Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  • 15Prepare 9x13 baking dish by adding 1/2 cup White Chilies Sauce to bottom and spreading it evenly around.
  • 16Assemble Enchiladas: Take one tortilla and put a heaping spoonful of chicken mixture on and spread down center or tortilla.
  • 17Sprinkle on Blue Cheese and Mozzarella and roll tightly. Place into prepared baking dish. Do this until the chicken mixture is used up or you run out of tortillas.
  • 18Spoon remaining White Chilies Sauce over Enchiladas and top with remaining mozzarella cheese drizzle with wing sauce if you would like. I did I had some made from a dinner from last week but again use bottle sauce :)
  • 19Bake in 375 degree oven for 35 minutes or until sauce and cheese is nice and bubbly
  • 20Remove from oven and cool for 15 minutes before serving.


    HOPE YOU ENJOY!!
