9 x 13 baking dish


  • 10-12 flour tortillas
  • 3 cups cooked shredded chicken breast
  • 4 cups shredded cheese of choice
  • 16 oz Red or green enchilada sauce


  • Warm up chicken if it is not warm already. Make sure tortillas are thawed and soft as well.
  • On one side of a tortilla, in a straight line, place as much chicken as you desire, I usually do about a tablespoon or 2. Place desired amount of shredded cheese on top the chicken.
  • Roll tortilla up. Do not enclose edges like a burrito as that is not traditional.
  • Place rolled up tortilla in a sprayed 9x13 deep dish pan. Repeat until chicken and tortillas are all used up.
  • Pour enchilada sauce on top the enchiladas. Pour remaining cheese on top the enchilada sauce. Bake at 400 degrees for about 15-20 minutes or until cheese is melted on the top. Cut and serve your Easy Chicken Enchiladas with salsa, sour cream, and guacamole!
