“I like using red sauce for my enchiladas, my MIL likes using green sauce. Either way the filling is great.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a shallow pan cook the chicken in water until fully cooked, approximately 5-10 minutes.
  2. Lightly toast tortillas on an open flame until very lightly charred and pliable (alternately place in damp paper towel and microwave for 30-45 seconds, do in batches of 12).
  3. Pull or cut the chicken into small pieces.
  4. Dip the tortillas in enchilada sauce, making sure to coat both sides. Place a small amount of the chicken, cheese and onion in the tortilla and roll up tightly. Place in a 9X13 pan seam side down. Repeat with the remaining tortillas and when the pan is full pour any remaining sauce over the enchiladas and sprinlke with cheese. Bake in a 350 degree farenheit oven for 15-20 minutes. Serve with sour cream, guacamole and hot sauce.
