Chicken enchilada recipes - 5 recipes

By Lingonberrylane

Have your own fiesta at home with chicken enchiladas. This baked chicken and corn tortilla dish originated in Mexico. Chicken enchiladas can be made from scratch or easily created with leftover chicken and any number of beans or vegetable combinations. Additions I like to add to my chicken enchiladas are zucchini, squash, mushrooms, spinach, olives and black beans. Top your enchiladas with a red, green or mole sauce and a generous helping of cheese. Who doesn’t like anything smothered in cheese? Bake your enchilada until cheese is melted and bubbly and enjoy with topping of your choice like sour cream, cilantro, green onions and salsa!
