Super Easy Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas

These chicken enchiladas are cheesy, spicy and so quick to get done!




Tortillas have become a regular in our grocery list. Azza loves to make different things with them or simply make them into a sandwich. I love them filled with the fajita filling. It is also one of the best bases to make quick fix pizzas. So while I signed up for the theme of “Dinner in 30 minutes” for this week’s Blogging Marathon #144, I definitely wanted to make something with tortillas. And here it is… Hehe…


The major inspiration for this recipe came from here, but I used my own list of ingredients based on what was available in my pantry. I usually have cooked chicken in my fridge and it came in very handy for this recipe. If the chicken isn’t cooked, it may add just another 10 minutes to your cook time – or even easier, order some rotisserie chicken and shred it. All you need to do is toss up the chicken with the condiments, roll them in cooked tortillas, arrange them, spread a lot of cheese and bake them just till bubbly. Apart from the 30 minutes to make this, it hardly took 5 minutes for the empty pan to end up in the sink. Hehe… My family definitely adores such meals as much as they can… Really… Off to this recipe…
