Easy Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas

Updated on February 16, 2011

You will need:

4 cooked chicken breasts (I prefer rotisserie)

1 10 oz. can of red chili enchilada sauce (Las Palmas or your favorite brand)

8 yellow corn tortillas

1 lb. of graded cheese

2 4 oz. cans of diced green chili (optional)

2 2oz. cans of sliced black olives

8-10 green onions

1 8-12 ounce can (small) of roasted garlic or regular cream of mushroom soup

1 cup of cooking oil

A cookie sheet (14-17 should do)

A frying pan

A fork, or pair of tongues ( to turn your tortillas)

Preheat your oven to 350

Chop the chicken breasts into about 1 inch squares, and set aside

Dice the onions, and set aside

Prepare your enchilada sauce according to package instructions

Put your oil into pan, and heat the oil until hot

Put your corn tortillas into you’re your pan of oil, and heat until warm (the object is to soften the tortillas, so they don’t break when you roll them)

Mix chicken with mushroom soup mix

Once all of your tortillas are warm, place one onto your cookie sheet, put ½ of a chopped chicken breast mixture, a sprinkle of cheese, and about a tbs. of sauce on the top of your chicken; roll the tortilla with all ingredients inside, make sure the open end is facing the bottom of the pan after it is rolled, so it can stay in place; repeat this until all of your tortillas are rolled

Spoon the sauce on top of the tortillas, followed with the reminder of cheese (evenly)

Sprinkle the black olives, green chilies, and green onions on top of your enchiladas

Place your cookie sheet into the oven, and heat until cheese is melted

Let set for about 5 minutes, and serve with your favorite side dishes (rice and re-fried beans)

Garnish with lettuce

And enjoy

      Um, sounds good. Can you tell us what the 14-17 on the cookies sheet is "inches"? Or is it 14 x 17? :)
