Simple Creamy Chicken Enchiladas

We love Mexican Food in our family. Years ago my daughter’s elementary school made a cookbook that had a recipe for Simple Creamy Chicken Enchiladas.

I am always wanting to try new chicken recipes and these Simple Chicken Enchiladas are so flavorful and easy you will add them to your weekly menu. This recipe is family friendly and everyone loves them.

This yummy family meal is so filling. Serve it with some Refried Beans and Spanish Rice and Guacamole and you will have a perfect meal.


  • Cooked, shredded chicken
  • Cream of chicken soup
  • Milk
  • Sour cream
  • Cheese
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Tortillas

This is a great recipe to use any leftover chicken or use a rotisserie chicken from Costco.


The fastest and easiest way to shred chicken is to use a handheld mixer or a stand-up mixer.

  1. Place boneless, cooked chicken in a mixing bowl or the bowl of a stand-up mixer.
  2. Set the mixer on low and mix.
  3. The only way to make perfect shredded chicken quickly!!


  1. Let the enchiladas cool off for at least 5 minutes before cutting into them. (they cut so much better)
  2. Make sure your cheese is shredded. The cheese melts better.
  3. Add some more color and flavor to your enchiladas by adding 1/2 cup of sour cream and 1/2 cup green enchilada sauce.

To freeze just cover tightly with saran wrap and then I add a layer of tinfoil. They will last up to 3 months in your freezer.

When you are ready to bake them just pop them in your fridge overnight and cook like the recipe says below.


  1. Make the Sauce….
  2. Coat the bottom of your Pan with a little sauce.
  3. Create the Enchiladas.
  4. Top it Off with sauce and chicken.
  5. Bake.

This recipe will become a favorite! These are perfect for a quick dinner recipe during the weeknight and so easy to make.

An easy dinner recipe that’s satisfying and comforting. These enchiladas are the perfect Mexican comfort food that’s creamy and delicious.
