Easy Chicken Enchiladas

This is an easy meal that can be whipped up any busy weeknight. For the chicken I made my Crockpot Chicken and saved half of it for this recipe. If you have never tried cooking a whole chicken in the crockpot you should! It saves so much money rather than buying a pack of chicken breasts.


3 cups shredded chicken
3 cups shredded cheese
2 cups enchilada sauce
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 small can chopped green chilis (optional)
12 corn or flour tortillas

1. Mix chicken, cheese, enchilada sauce, cilantro and chilis together. Add salt and pepper to taste.

2. Take a baking dish and spoon a little enchilada sauce on the bottom.

3. Next warm tortillas in the microwave so they are soft and semi pliable. Spoon filling in the middle of the tortilla and roll up. Place seam side down in the sauce.

4. Next drizzle enchilada sauce all over tops and cover with cheese. Cover pan with foil and bake at 350 for 15 minutes. To prevent foil from sticking to the cheese spray foil with cooking spray. Take foil off and continue baking until cheese is melted and bubbly.

You can now top with lettuce, tomatoes, green onions, sour cream or whatever you like!!
