cost per recipe: $6.10
Stir the soup and picante sauce in a small bowl.
Stir 1/2 cup soup mixture, 1/4 cup cheese and the chicken in a medium bowl.
Spoon about 1/3 cup chicken mixture down the center of each tortilla. Roll up and place seam-side down into a 2-quart microwavable dish. Pour the remaining soup mixture over the filled enchiladas. Cover the dish.
Microwave on HIGH for 5 minutes or until the enchiladas are hot. Serve topped with chopped fresh cilantro or sliced green onions, and additional picante sauce on the side, if desired.
This dish is so quick and easy. I made it even quicker by using Swanson can chicken breast. My family loves it.
SORRY BUT THESE ARE NOT ENCHILADAS
this recipe looks easy and delicious- the only problem is they are not enchiladas! real enchiladas are made with corn tortillas, not flour tortillas. i live in colorado, both here and in new mexico these would be classified as a type of burrito. thank you
Cream of Chicken soup ????
Great recipie but still don't know where the Cream of Chicken soup comes in ???
Speedy Chicken Enchiladas
We had a roasted chicken the evening before I made these. SO I had pre-shredded the leftover chicken knowing that I was going to make these the second evening. Saved lots of time I simply mixed the chicken soup, salsa, and chicken, heated this through in the microwave and filled the tortilla shells. I too would use both corn and flour shells. Very quick, very easy. This would be a great beginner recipe if you are first learning to cook. Could top with shredded lettuce when serving and also a touch of additional shredded cheese for looks and pizzaz.
Definitely add some green and red bell peppers, chile, or anything else you would normally want in an enchilada/Mexican dish. Also, be sure to SHRED the chicken instead of cubing it. Traditional enchiladas are made this way, and there's a reason behind it: more flavorful and just an overall better texture!
