Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas

November 07, 2011
Should I really call these enchiladas?  They do have enchilada sauce in them, they look like enchiladas, but, they aren't what most would call authentic enchiladas. Maybe Baked Chicken Tacos? Not sure.   Here is the deal...I love Mexican food, especially enchiladas.  My dear husband?  Not so much.  As I have said before, he is Mr Plain.  Well, it got a bit tiresome to make two different dishes when I wanted enchiladas.  So, I came across this recipe on my handy dandy Betty Crocker Windows Phone App and altered it bit so, Mr Plain ( & the kiddies ) would eat it without any issue and my enchilada craving would be satisfied.



Ingredients:
 2 cups shredded chicken, cooked
1/2 cup Progresso chicken and cheese enchilada soup
1/2 cup mild red enchilada sauce
2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese 
10 corn tortillas

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a saucepan, combine, cheddar soup, milk, enchilada soup, and enchilada sauce. Stir until well combined.
In a mixing bowl, add 1 cup soup mixture with chicken and 1 cup cheese.  Warm tortillas in microwave for about a minute, so, they are easier to work with.  Spoon approx 1/4 cup of chicken into each tortilla.  Roll together and place seam side down in baking dish.  Continue until all tortillas are filled. 
Pour remaining soup mixture over completed enchiladas.  Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake for 30 minutes.
Garnish with salsa, lettuce, sour cream...whatever you desire.
