Green chile enchiladas

Thanks for stopping by! To get the newest recipes subscribe or join us on facebook and pinterest.

Enchiladas are on the menu ATLEAST once a month at our house. We love them! Green chile enchiladas are one of our favorites. I took one of my old recipes and turned it “creamy” to create the perfect enchiladas. I love how they turned out! These have the perfect combination of flavors and taste absolutely delicious!  They do have a little kick to them, so if you don’t like things spicy make sure to take out the chili powder and cumin.

Green chile enchiladas

Ingredients

  • 8-10 large flour tortillas
  • 2-3 cups shredded cooked chicken (about 4 chicken breasts)
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder (omit if you don't like things too spicy)
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 cup diced green chili (4.5 oz can)
  • 4-8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1 juiced lime
  • 1 14 oz can green chile enchilada sauce (I used Macayo's)
  • 1/2-1 cup shredded pepperjack cheese
  • cilantro (optional)

Instructions

  1. Combine shredded chicken, cream cheese, garlic, chili powder, cumin, kosher salt, black pepper, lime and green chili in a medium sized bowl. Stir until combined.
  2. Spoon 2-3 TB into each tortilla and roll it up. Place a little enchilada sauce on the bottom of a 9x13 dish and then put the tortillas in.
  3. Pour the rest of the enchilada sauce over the tortiallas and top with shredded cheese. Cover with foil.
  4. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Remove foil and bake for 10-15 more minutes, until the cheese is nice and bubbly. Allow to cool and enjoy! Top with fresh cilantro.

You can top them with cilantro when they come out of the oven.

Enjoy!

    Can I just say, I’ve tried to make green chile enchiladas 3 times now (without a recipe mind you– that would take too much work to find ;) and I’ve bombed every time! So happy you posted this! I’ve pinned it and I won’t be too lazy to look it up there next time I’m making enchiladas :) Which will be tomorrow night.

    The flour tortillas don’t come out gummy? I’ve always used corn because the flour ones break down. Just wondering!

    Not ingress, enchiladas! (sorry auto correct).

    Also, you answer someones question about floor tortillas. Mine were not soggy, but I would think tomorrow they would be. Awesome flavor so corn tortillas would work too, maybe white corn?. Hope that helps.

    Made these tonight with a few variations… I added some sauteed mushrooms and onion.. And I did half with chicken, half with beans as I’m vegetarian. They were delish! Next time I’d adding a bit more cheese though ;) Thanks for the easy recipe!

    I do have a quick question before I try making these tonight. The recipe ask for one minced clove of garlic and ask just to be mixed in the chicken mixture, do I just mix the garlic raw?

    looking at recipe and was surprise to see you use 4- 8oz. cream cheese, so you are saying 8oz per chicken breast? Just asking sounds like a lot of cream cheese. I love cream cheese ( but), is this correct or a booboo.

    • Jamielyn replied on September 11th, 2014 at 12:44 am

      Hi Linda! It is 4-8 oz of cream cheese for the whole recipe (4 chicken breasts). :)
