Lazy Chicken Enchiladas

This recipe uses the same basic ingredients as the easy chicken chilaquiles recipe. You can substitute red enchilada sauce or even mole to add variety. If you don’t have chicken, make cheese enchiladas.

Lazy Chicken Enchiladas
1 rotisserie chicken
16 oz can Las Palmas Green Chile Enchilada Sauce (medium)
1 package Mexican blend cheese
1 package of corn tortillas

9″ x 13″ pan

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Shred the rotisserie chicken. Layer corn tortillas on the bottom of the pan, layer chicken over the tortillas, sprinkle cheese over this, then pour the green chile enchilada sauce. Repeat the layers again, finishing with a layer of corn tortillas and cheese. Pour the rest of the sauce over the top.

Cover the pan with foil and bake for 25 minutes at 350 degrees. Take the foil off and bake another 5 minutes to make sure all the cheese on top is all melty.

I used to warm the tortillas, then roll the chicken and cheese inside each tortilla. I realized the dish tasted and looked the same when I did it lasagna style. Plus the kids didn’t care because I was done cooking 20 minutes earlier.
