Easy Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas

 

 
 
Hi there! My name is Jesica Fowler and I was honored when asked to make a guest post on this amazing food blog! I have always loved to cook and I enjoyed teaching high school foods for 2 years. Most of what I cook is not fancy but crazy easy and tasty! I am currently a stay at home mom and wife to a med student and I have lots of time to come up with yummy creations! I am currently into making specialty cakes which you can see at jesicascakes.blogspot.com I also have my school blogs that are no longer contributed to but have lots of super easy, yummy recipes on them! They are fowlersfoods1.blogspot.com and fowlersfoods2.blogspot.com
 
 
This is a Easy Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas recipe from my mother in law! There are a couple must haves to this recipe that really make these chicken enchiladas stand above others! The first is to use rotisserie chicken and the second is to use the uncooked flour tortillas!
 

Can You Use Flour Tortillas In Enchiladas?

Corn tortillas are traditionally used in enchiladas, but flour tortillas can also be used.

Can Enchiladas Be Made Ahead?

You can assemble enchiladas the night before and refrigerate until you are ready to bake.

If you assemble ahead of time, add the final sauce and cheese just before you bake.

How Do You Keep Enchiladas From Being Soggy?

The most important dip for avoiding soggy enchiladas is to briefly fry the tortillas before filling and rolling them.

These enchiladas freeze great uncooked and are also great even in the fridge uncooked for a day or two. I’ve found them to be a great meal to bring to friends and family along with chips and salsa and a salad!

    available right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?
