Tasty Tuesday: Green Chile Chicken Enchiladas

Tuesday, January 12, 2016

It's been way too long since I've done a tasty Tuesday recipe!
Going on vacation + the holidays caused me to forget completely about it!
I'm back to posting recipes hopefully weekly, but if not... at least once a month ;)

My favorite dinner my mom made growing up was enchiladas.
Which is funny, because I never liked them anywhere else.
I loved that she uses green sauce and that the filling can be eaten alone.
I put my own spin on my mom's recipe and it is easily one of me and Hunter's favorite dinners!
I've made it for a few friends as well and they all love them!
So here's the recipe!

5-6 cooked chicken tenders (chopped) or 3-4 breasts
Salt and pepper
6-7 tortillas
1 tin foil package enchilada seasoning 
28 oz can green enchilada sauce
1 4 oz can diced green chiles
1 can cream of chicken soup
3 cups shredded cheese
Nonstick spray

Cook chicken in pan with salt and pepper. Chop it up and put in large mixing bowl. Add 2 1/2 cups shredded cheese, 1/2 can cream of chicken soup, 1/2 package enchilada seasoning, and green chiles. Mix it all up. Fill tortillas with 2  spoonfuls of the mixture. Roll them up and place in 9x13 pan sprayed with nonstick spray. Smother those enchiladas with green chile enchilada sauce (about 3/4 of can save the rest for next day leftovers) and add 1/2 cup cheese on top. Cover with foil and bake for 35 minutes at 375. When there's about five minutes left, take off the foil and turn your oven to broil. Serve with Spanish rice and sour cream on top! Yummy! 

All my love,
