Recipe: Chicken & Cheese Enchiladas

This enchilada recipe is so easy and delicious – and I love that I can make it the night before and then pop it in the oven when my husband and I get home from work. The recipe is from Campbell’s, and as you’ll see below, it uses their Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup. It also has a nice heat to it from the Pace Picante Sauce, which I usually buy in hot, but you can tone down the heat with the medium or mild picante sauce.

This is a great meal to make with leftover chicken, but you can also make a big batch of shredded chicken for the week with your crock pot and use some of that. All you have to do is put chicken breasts in the slow cooker, cover it with either water or chicken broth, then leave on high for 4 hours. Take it out, shred it, and use some of it to make enchiladas! Another option that’s even easier is to use a rotisserie chicken, which is usually what I do.

Check out the recipe below, along with some photos that show the step-by-step process. The image below from Campbell’s admittedly looks much nicer than mine, but they still taste great!
