Easy Creamy Chicken Enchiladas

Hi friends~ If it’s summer already for you, I hope you’re enjoying it. In this house, we’ll feel like summer is officially here after Thursday when our children get out of school. (Busy days until then… Can’t wait for things to slow down!!!)

For “Tasty Tuesday” at Balancing Beauty and Bedlam, I thought I’d share these Chicken Enchiladas that are delicious and so easy to make. (Remember… I don’t make anything that isn’t “easy”!) When I make them, I make several recipes and freeze the extras. Perfect to pull out of the freezer after a busy day, or after a day of play in the sun.

Chicken Enchiladas
Oven: 375,
Makes 8-10

2 cups cooked, diced chicken
½ cup chopped onion
2 Tbs. butter
1 tsp. chili powder
1 (4oz) can chopped green chilies
3 cans cream of chicken soup
1 1/2 cups sour cream
2 (or more) ups shredded cheese, divided
8-10 flour tortillas

· In a 2 qt. saucepan, melt butter. When melted, add onions and chili powder. Cook until onions are tender.
· Stir together cream of chicken soup and sour cream. Set aside.
· When onions are done, add chilies and 1/3- 2/3 cup of soup mixture to the onions. Stir in chicken and 1 c up shredded cheese.

To make enchiladas:
Above the center of the tortilla, spread about ¼ cup of chicken mixture. Roll up, and place in a greased baking dish seam side down. Spread remaining soup mixture over enchiladas. Cover with foil. Bake 15 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake uncovered for 5 minutes (until cheese melts). Let enchiladas sit for a few minutes before serving.
Great with salsa drizzled on top.

(If you freeze them, don’t put the soup/sour cream mixture on top. Wait until right before you bake it.)
