Easy Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas in Green Sauce

Paula Todora


I make this or a version of this every single week-so easy! Sometimes I make them with all cheese, sometime with ground beef seasoned with taco seasoning and use a can of red sauce instead of green. The possibilities are endless!!!!!

How to Make Easy Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas in Green Sauce


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    Spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
    In a large skillet on medium low heat, add enchilada sauce and warm.
  2. Dip a tortilla into sauce and shake off and place in prepared baking dish. Add a heaping amount of shredded cooked chicken and sprinkle with about 1 Tablespoon or so of shredded cheese.
    Roll and place seamside down in pan. Continue with the other 5 tortillas, using all of the chicken but reserving some cheese for top.
  3. Pour the remaining sauce over top of enchiladas and sprinkle with remaining cheese. That's it!
    Bake for appx. 30 minutes until bubbly and hot.
    Serve with a big heaping spoonful of sour cream and sliced avocado, if desired.
    Makes 6 very large enchiladas. I eat one; my husband eats 2; some may eat 3. May serve 2, 3, 4 or 6!
  4. *Note - To make this very easy, you can substitute shredded rotissiere chicken.
    *2nd Note - Sometimes I add a splash of heavy cream to the sauce to make it a little creamier.
