How to Make Chicken Enchiladas

Step-by-Step

  • 1cook chicken breasts until the meat shreds. I like to pressure cook the breasts for 10 minutes. Then they shred easily.
  • 2Mix together, shredded chicken, sour cream, refried beans, 1 cup of shredded cheese, 1/2 of each - diced onion, olives, jalapeño pepper, red/yellow pepper and banana pepper.
  • 3In sauce pan mix enchilada sauce, green chillies and diced tomatoes. Heat through. Add 1 cup of sauce mixture to shredded chicken mixture. Mix thoroughly.
  • 4Take tortilla and spoon on chicken/sauce mixture, top with handful of shredded cheese. Roll tortilla and place in glass pan (PAM it first). I sometime use toothpicks to keep the tortilla shells rolled up. Repeat this for all eight tortilla shells.
  • 5Pour remaining sauce mixture over the rolled tortillas. Top with remaining diced onions, olives, jalapeños, peppers, etc.
  • 6Cover with foil and bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake additional 30 minutes until done.
  • 7Serve with Spanish Rice and Enjoy!
