Easy Chicken Enchiladas

by Lynnette Martin
(Ada, OK)

You will need:

  • 8 Flour tortillas

  • 2 cups of chicken (you can use canned)

  • 1 stick of butter

  • minced onions

  • 8 oz cream cheese

  • 1 pint of heavy whipping cream (can use half and half)

  • Shredded monterey jack cheese

Pre-heat oven to 350. I boil chicken and shred it, but as I said above, you can use canned.

Melt butter in a large skillet, saute onions, add cream cheese until mixture is smooth and creamy. Add chicken.

Drop large spoonfuls of mixture into flour tortillas, make your mixture long and skinny in the tortillas. Fold in the top and bottom in towards the ends of the mixture, roll and place in a 9x13 baking pan, do this with all eight.

Poor whipping cream over all of the enchiladas, and cover generously with cheese.

Place in the oven and bake for 30 min or until bubbly.

This is one of my family's favorite meals! You can also add green chilies, peppers, more onions, and olives. Yum! Enjoy!

Loved them

I finally got around to making these, and I knew they were good when after the first bite my husband said, "It's really good!"

I had to modify it just a bit, because I was out of onion and only had corn tortillas. Here's what I did.

I sauteed the chicken in butter and added a tablespoon of dried minced onion, I added a small can of chopped green chilies to the mixture along with the cream cheese.

I stuffed the corn tortillas with the mixture. Then I followed the rest of the instructions topping with heavy cream and cheese. I did cover with foil for about 30 minutes, then baked uncovered for another 10 minutes or so. (Next time I'll mix another can of green chilies with the cream and top them with that.)

This was very, very good, and since I used left over rotisserie chicken, it was very quick as well. Loved it! Thank you.
