I have an easy chicken enchilada recipe from scratch for you that produces the most flavorful enchiladas. Also included my recipe for slow cooker refried beans.
This easy chicken enchilada recipe is worth its weight in gold. You may use more cheese if you wish and the filling is for medium sized tortillas.
Easy Chicken Enchilada Recipe
4 cups chopped cooked chicken
1-1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
1-1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
1-1/2 cups sour cream
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees and spray a 9x13 inch baking dish with oil.
In a large bowl, mix the chicken with one cup of the mozzarella cheese, cheddar cheese, chopped onion and all of the sour cream. Mix well.
Place approximately 1 cup of the chicken filling in the center of the flour tortilla and roll up. Place seam-side down in the baking dish and repeat with the remaining tortillas.
Pour the enchilada sauce over all and sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella and cheddar cheese. Bake for 45 minutes.
