EVERYONE loves this recipe! I give it out all the time. You can also substitute ground beef for the chicken, but it's not as creamy good!

How to Make Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas

Step-by-Step

  1. Boil chicken until done...I season as if I was making chicken soup (freeze the broth for later use)
  2. Shred the chicken using a fork or put in food processor until shredded coarsely.
  3. Mix 1 can cheese soup and 1 can green enchilada sauce into shredded chicken.
  4. At this point if you LOVE cheese, add a handful of shredded cheese to mixture, mix well.
  5. Spray the largest casserole dish you have with Pam. I use an 11”x 15” dish, but you could split into 2 dishes if needed.
  6. Place 2-3 tablespoons of chicken mix into tortilla and roll up tightly like a burrito. Lay them side by side in dish, squishing as close together as possible.
  7. Once all are filled and rolled, pour red enchilada sauce over top, spread with spoon if necessary.
  8. Sprinkle shredded cheese over top to cover completely...the more the better!
  9. Place in 350 degree oven for 20 minutes or until cheese starts to brown.
  10. Serve with sour cream. Freezes well.
