“I found this recipe on the internet when I wanted to try making Chicken Enchiladas. I liked the idea of a cream based sauce rather than a tomato based sauce. The filling is so incredible that you can eat it cold right out of the bowl. My family loved it and I make this all the time now.”
1hr 40mins
12-15 enchiladas

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place chicken in pan of boiling water to cover, and simmer 15-20 minutes. Remove from heat, drain, cool, and shred chicken.
  2. In skillet, melt butter over medium heat.
  3. Cook onion and bell peppers until just soft, 5-8 minutes.
  4. Transfer to large bowl.
  5. Add chicken, cheddar cheese, green chiles, salsa, cilantro, and cumin. Season with salt and pepper to taste and mix well.
  6. Note: you can do this much a day ahead and store in the fridge. It's pretty tasty just as is without the rest of the recipe, but since you're making a special dinner, read on.

  12. Combine cream and chicken broth and pour over enchiladas.
