The Easiest Chicken Enchiladas
Easy weeknight dinner. Mexican Inspired. Yes please. My family loves meals that are full of flavor and I love meals that I can get on the table in about 30 minutes 😉 Mexican food is one of our favorite food groups, from breakfast to dinner, we love the flavor and the heat that you can typically find in Mexican food. We have a great little authentic Mexican restaurant right up the road that we like to go to at least once a month, but since our budget doesn’t allow for weekly, I have learned to make a few staple dishes here at home. Like these Chicken Enchiladas.
The beauty of these Chicken Enchiladas is that you use a rotisserie chicken that you pick up from your local grocery store, that alone saves you a ton of time in the kitchen! You can fill your enchiladas with whatever you and your family would like, but typically it’s just the meat. Me, I like to sneak in some vegetables now and again (hey, a mom’s gotta do what a mom’s gotta do) like corn or even beans. If you don’t want to add them inside of the enchiladas, I recommend serving with yellow rice and black beans. And don’t forget the chips and salsa. YUM.
What You Need To Make The Easiest Chicken Enchiladas:
1 Store Bought Rotisserie Chicken
1 can of Enchilada Sauce, we also love Simply Organic Red Enchilada Simmer Sauce.
1 package of small flour tortillas – not the street taco size, but the ones up from there. Not the LARGE either 😉
Cheddar or Mexican Shredded Cheese
Lettuce, chopped tomato, sliced jalapenos and sour cream for garnish
How To Make Make The Easiest Chicken Enchiladas:
Shred the chicken using 2 forks or your hands, whichever you prefer.

Roll up tortilla like a cigar
Repeat until you have enough done for your family
Top with enchilada sauce
Sprinkle with cheese
Bake in oven at 350 degrees for 10 – 15 minutes until heated throughout and cheese is melted
Top with lettuce, tomato, jalapenos and sour cream if desired
Seriously, does it get much easier than that y’all? I didn’t think so!
