Chicken Enchiladas

June 29, 2012Teresa

Chicken Enchiladas is a wonderful Tex-Mex recipe. Tortillas are spread with a couple of tablespoonfuls of refried beans. Then you spread a creamy chicken mixture composed of cream of chicken soup, sour cream and shredded chicken over top. This is topped with another spoonful of cheese then rolled up and layered in a pan with enchilada sauce, green onions, sliced ripe olives and more cheese spread over the top. If you enjoy a little southwestern spice, this is comfort food extraordinaire!

These Chicken Enchiladas are very tasty and filling, and not overly difficult to assemble and put together either. This great Taste of Home recipe is excellent served with pico de gallo, salsa or quacamole if desired, although I served mine without any accompaniments this time.

My husband ate his with sour cream. This is one of those recipes where you can chunk the chicken or shred it and add more or less chicken according to your family’s taste buds. This recipe makes 20 enchiladas — enough to serve 10 people.

One of the nice things about this entree is it’s really fairly quick and easy to make. Especially if you pre-purchase shredded chicken, this can be made up in about 20 minutes. The whole recipe can be table-ready in about an hour. It’s wonderful to serve for family or company dinners, Cinco de Mayo celebrations or any time you want a Tex-Mex fix!

If you’re looking for a great Tex-Mex enchilada recipe than look no farther than these delicious Chicken Enchiladas. They are very tasty. If your family enjoys enchiladas, pull out the pico de gallo, homemade salsa, fresh guacamole, sour cream and cilantro and you have a dinner made in heaven!
