Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas #SundaySupper

Ready to bake.

We participated in #SundaySupper last week and it was amazing. Our fellow bloggers were so welcoming and friendly. The combined traffic made it a popular event as well. Even though I am out of town this weekend I thought it would be fun to join in again and am I ever glad we did. 

This week we are showcasing Getting Together With Friends and Portable Meals from The Mom 100 Cookbook. I found an easy dish we could make ahead for easy baking while I am out of town. Check out the Mom 100 Website to learn more.

Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas

  • 2 tbsp Canola Oil
  • 14 small (6-inch) Corn Torillas
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 can (28-oz) enchilada sauce
  • 4 cups shredded cooked chicken
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
For Serving:
Chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 cup thinly sliced scallions
Thinly sliced avocado
Sour cream

Lightly oil a 13 x 9 dish. Heat the tortillas for 2-3 seconds each side in a large skillet over medium-heat and then place on a plate. Add a little more oil to the pan and saute the onion and garlic for 3 minutes. Incorporate the seasonings and cook until fragrant, about another minute. Add the enchilada sauce and heat until sauce comes to a simmer. Turn off the heat. Place the chicken and half the sauce in a medium bowl and stir to combine. Place tortillas on a work surface. Spoon 1/4 cup chicken onto the edge of the tortilla and then gently roll up the tortilla. Place the enchilada, seam side down in the greased dish. 

Either pour the reserved sauce on top and then sprinkle with cheese or skip the sauce and just add cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until cheese is melted. Top with any items desired from the serving list. 

Audrey helped me pull the chicken off the bone and then place the mix on the tortillas. It was a simple but new meal for us. I will try to update the post with info on how the family likes the meal as soon as they eat it.

I spoke with the family and they enjoyed the dinner last night. Two items came up as tips to make the meal better next time. The book said to cover with plastic wrap or foil to store in the fridge. I selected foil and the meal dried out a bit before they baked it. I did not add the second half of the enchilada sauce because it was a little spicy for my family. If you add the rest of the sauce it may not dry out as much. Also, Joshua said he would prefer flour to corn tortillas.

Shredding chicken.

  1. What a fun recipe to prepare with the family! Can't wait to try this with my kids!

  2. I love it that you have the kids in the kitchen helping prepare your meals!

  3. What a great, easy weeknight meal! This would be a great dish to bring as a potluck or BBQ!

  4. Yum, Yum, Yummy!! It is so important to get the children involved with the cooking process. It is the best way for them to learn to grow up and cook for their own families! Thanks for posting it for #SundaySupper!

  5. I've been in the mood for enchiladas the past few weeks, so I can't wait to try these! I prefer flour to corn tortillas as well.

  6. Our family eats veggie enchiladas at least once a week. This recipe would be great, sans the chicken!

  7. Can I just tell you how much I adore enchiladas. I love them, and yours look soo good.

  8. I love how helpful your sweet kids are in the kitchen! Enchiladas are my most favorite, or a weakness of mine:-) They look delicious! Hugs, Terra

  9. Ooh! Cheesy is right! I would love this for dinner tonight! Pure comfort food! :)

  10. I love enchiladas. They are perfect to make ahead of time and freeze as well as easy enough to take with you to a party.

  11. Great family recipe! The perfect choice for #SundaySupper. What I love about this is that it doesn't look like the typically portable dish, making it something different than all the usual portables. Glad you picked this one!! :)

  12. I love enchiladas, but don't think about making them that often. These look great.


Audrey wants to hear from you!
