Everyone will be excited for dinner when these Creamy Chicken Enchiladas are on the menu! They’re sure to become a part of the regular meal rotation!
My husband came up with this recipe in college and made these for me when we first got married. I was raving about how delicious they are, so he showed me how to make them and I’ve been serving them to my family for dinner ever since! They only require a few ingredients and are so easy to make, especially if you start with canned or rotisserie chicken.
All you’ll need is some sour cream, green salsa, chicken, hash browns, tortillas and cheese (your favorite kind). You really can’t go wrong with these. I actually never even measure how much of anything I put in. It’s one of those things where you add a little of this and some of that and it comes together to make the best creamy chicken enchiladas you’ve tasted!
It’s one of our family’s most cherished recipes and most favorite meals! It shows up on the menu at least once a month. I used to go to the trouble of boiling and shredding chicken breasts, until I discovered the magical trick of incorporating canned or rotisserie chicken instead. It instantly made my life so much easier! And I think these taste better too this way!
These enchiladas use simple ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry and fridge. If you like them to be creamier, add more sour cream. If you’d prefer to bring out the green chile flavor, add more green salsa. I always save about half the salsa verde and pour it on top for a yummy finishing touch and to soften the tortillas. If you’d like, you can also pour some on the bottom of the pan before assembling these.
I can’t wait for you to try this recipe and for it to become one of your family’s most requested meals too!
For Mexican night next time, be sure to prepare these scrumptious chicken enchiladas and wait for the praises!
