Mom came home from my sister Kathy's house in Texas with this recipe around 1990. It became an immediate hit with the family. NOTE: The prep time listed here assumes you already have cooked chicken. You do, right? I'm posting the original recipe here, but you can "play" with these basic ingredients & make them your own. In fact, as always, I highly encourage playing with your food! =^..^=

How To Make kathy's easy cheesy chicken enchiladas

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly mist a 13 x 9" baking dish with cooking spray.
  • 2
    Divide the sour cream evenly into 2 bowls. In the larger one, add the can of condensed cream of chicken soup. Then place a colander over the bowl & drain the juice from the Rotel tomatoes & chilies right into the bowl...
  • 3
    ...until you have this. Mix it up & set it aside for now.
  • 4
    In the other bowl with sour cream, add the drained Rotel tomatoes & chilies. Mix it up & set it aside for now.
  • 5
    Lay out the flour tortillas (Yes, I know I have large & small ones. It's all good!) and divide the shredded chicken among them. See TIP below in Step 6.
  • 6
    Top the chicken on the tortillas with the sour cream/Rotel tomatoes & chilies mixture. TIP: It's easy to even up all the ingredients if all 10 tortillas are laying out.
  • 7
    Roll up each enchilada & place in the prepared baking dish. I just wrap them up top & bottom, then right & left, then place them with the edges hidden in the dish.
  • 8
    Pour the sour cream, condensed soup, and Rotel juice mixture over the folded enchiladas...
  • 9
    ...and smooth evenly.
  • 10
    Cover with cheese. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 25-30 minutes, or until the enchiladas are heated through...
  • 11
    ...and the cheese is melted & bubbly. Like this!
  • 12
    Serve with picante sauce and whatever other toppings you like. Buen provecho! =^..^=
