cost per recipe: $8.13

  • 1 can (10 1/2 ounces) Campbell’s® Healthy Request® Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup
  • 1 cup Pace® Chunky Salsa
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup light sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 3 cups shredded cooked boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 6 corn tortilla (6-inch), warmed
  • 1/4 cup shredded reduced fat Cheddar cheese
  • 1 medium tomato, diced (about 1 cup)
  • 4 green onion, thinly sliced (about 1/2 cup) (optional)


  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 350°F.  While the oven is heating, stir the soup, salsa, water, sour cream and chili powder in a large bowl.  Reserve 3/4 cup soup mixture.  Add the chicken to the remaining soup mixture and stir to coat.

  • Step 2

    Spoon 1/2 cup chicken mixture down the center of each tortilla.  Fold the tortillas around the filling.  Place the filled tortillas seam-side down into an 11x8x2-inch baking dish.  Spoon the reserved soup mixture over the filled tortillas.  Sprinkle with the cheese.  Cover the baking dish.

  • Step 3

    Bake for 35 minutes or until the enchiladas are hot.  Serve topped with the tomato and green onions, if desired.

    I was really surprised just how good this was. I was completely taken aback when I saw the chicken soup as an ingredient but tried it because of the positive reviews. I was not disappointed. It’s been copied and added to my regular recipe box!

    I used leftover turkey and flour tortillas to make this recipe. I can see using store-bought rotisserie chicken to make it easy. Very tasty!

  • Best. Recipe. Ever.

    This was recommended to me by a friend at work that raved about this recipe. She said they were amazing and boy oh boy are they! The hubby, my 8 year old twins and I had them two weeks ago and I jumped on the site to get the recipe again to make them again tonight.
