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

How to Make Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas


  • 1PREHEAT 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.
  • 2Spoon in heaping portions of chicken mixture in middle of tortilla. Place in a baking pan, seam down.
  • 3Once pan is filled with enchilladas, pour enchilada sauce all over. Be sure to cover every tortilla.
  • 4Pour nacho cheese all over. Sprinkle remaining shredded cheese. Cover with foil and bake for 30 to 40 minutes. Enjoy the cheesy goodness!
