Chicken Enchiladas

Chicken Enchiladas

Chicken enchiladas is a recipe I cannot actually take credit for.  They have become known as “Bree’s Enchiladas” at both my house and my parent’s house.  I owe this one to my sister in law, who made them for my family years ago.  I do believe that she found the recipe online somewhere initially.

Like most things, I have modified it already and have more modifications in mind.  I saved a jalapeño cream cheese enchilada sauce a while back that I’d like to try to combine with this recipe.

I did try a traditional beef enchilada recipe recently but need to perfect it before I post it here.  When I made those, I tried to use aspects of this recipe to convert it to a “red” enchilada recipe.  Perhaps if I make it with green chiles and then cover with some sort of queso it would be closer to this.  I will post a recipe here when I try it.

Since this blog is meant to share all of the things I cook I have to add this because these things are delicious.  I have seen a number of chicken enchiladas recipes online.  This is the one I’ve been using for years now and is a family favorite around my house.

You can cook these on a cast iron griddle or in a traditional, glass baking dish.  Serve with a side of Mexican rice and corn.
