Simple and Quick Homemade Enchiladas Recipe

Finally sharing my go-to healthy enchiladas from last week’s Cooking with Liz! I love this recipe because you can seriously make them as easy and healthy as you’d like. They take all of 10 minutes to assemble and then you bake until they are bubbly and golden and delicious! A simple and quick weekday meal or make ahead for a dinner party. Either way, add this recipe to your rotation and everyone will be pleased.

Easy Homemade Enchiladas Recipe
makes 8

rotisserie chicken, shredded
2 pre-made enchilada sauce packs (we love Frontera Grill sauces)
corn tortillas – or whatever you prefer!*
mexican cheese
toppings of your choice – salsa, cilantro, sour cream, jalapeño

Preheat your oven to 375. In a casserole dish, pour 1/2 of 1 enchilada sauce packet to coat the bottom. Combine the remaining sauce from the packet with shredded chicken to coat evenly. Evenly fill your tortillas, roll them up and place side by side in casserole dish. Pour the remaining enchilada sauce over the top of the enchiladas. Top with a good amount of cheese and whatever else you’d prefer! We like adding jalapeño (unless the kids are enjoying too). Bake for 25 minutes until the cheese is melted and golden brown.

*Dave isn’t a huge fan of corn tortillas and I don’t love the calories in flour tortillas so I usually try to find something to meet in the middle. You could also use dairy free cheese or substitute the chicken for black beans and peppers to make this a vegetarian dish! The options are endless!

By using store bought enchilada sauce and rotisserie chicken, this recipe is so quick and easy but still feels homemade! One of our family favorites.
