The Best Chicken Enchiladas Recipe of All Time

Updated on February 2, 2013

Try it, you'll like it!

The following is hands down the best chicken enchilada recipe that I've ever tried. As an added bonus, it's also easy to make. :)

Chicken Enchiladas

1 Boned Chicken (I usually substitute 4-6 of those "ice kissed" boneless chicken breasts-- it's easier and quicker)

2 Cups Sour Cream

1 Can Cream of Chicken Soup

1 Can Water

1/2 Cup Chopped Onion

4 Ounces Green Diced Chilies (I buy the cans-- once again, easier and quicker!)

16 Ounces Grated Cheddar Cheese (also good if you combine cheddar and mozzarella)

1 Dozen Large Flour Tortillas

1/2 Cup Salsa

1. Boil the chicken (it makes the meat really tender, drain, and cut into bite sized cubes.

2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees

3. Mix all of the ingredients except for half of the cheese in a large bowl.

4. Fill the flour tortillas individually, roll closed, and place in a large casserole dish (it helps to put a toothpick in them to keep them from unrolling).

5. Top with the remaining cheese and extra salsa.

6. Bake for 30 minutes or until thoroughly heated and the cheese has melted.

7. Enjoy!!

      I don't eat much meat either. I've been trying to go vegetarian for years, but I never can quite pull it off. For now, I still eat chicken, turkey, and tuna-- but I've cut out red meat and pork.

      It is a good recipe. Turning it vegetarian shouldn't be too difficult. I'd recommend adding more veggies to make it more filling (and to soak up the sauce). You could try adding fish or maybe tofu for protein. Please, let me know how it turns out!

      Side note-- thank you for reading and commenting on so many of my hubs recently. I really appreciate the feedback and support. Thanks you! :)

      This recipe sounds good. I don't eat meat but might change it around to make a fish dish. I will let you know if I do and am successful.
