Ingredients For cheesy chicken enchiladas

  • 1 1/2 lb
    cooked chicken, diced
  • 16 oz
    cream cheese, softened
  • 1
    red onion, chopped
  • 2 can
    enchilada sauce (15 ounce cans)
  • 2 c
    mexican blend shredded cheese
  • 20

How To Make cheesy chicken enchiladas

  • 1
    Combine cooked chicken, chopped onion and softened cream cheese in bowl.
  • 2
    Heat enchilada sauce in skillet on low (I used the one I cooked the chicken in)
  • 3
    Dip one tortilla at a time in enchilada sauce (so it doesn't crack or break), shake off excess sauce in skillet, place a heaping tablespoon of filling on one side of tortilla and roll up. Place seam side down in 13 x 9 baking dish.
  • 4
    After all of the enchiladas are in the baking dish, pour the remaining enchilada sauce over the top and sprinkle with shredded cheese. NOTE: My daughter prefers to put thin slices of Velveta cheese on top rather than the shredded cheese.
  • 5
    Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 20 minutes or until sauce is bubbly and cheese has melted.
