Mom's Easy Creamy Chicken Enchiladas

Yield: 6 servings

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 35-45 minutes

Total Time: 55-65 minutes

These enchiladas are about as easy and delicious as they get! They re-heat amazingly; th longer they sit, the better they get!


1 1/3 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cooked & shredded
2 (10.5 ounce) cans cream of chicken condensed soup
1 cup sour cream
1 (4.5 ounce) can chopped green chilies
8 ounces cheddar cheese, divided
6 (8-inch) flour tortillas

For Serving: Pico de gallo, sour cream, and cilantro


Preheat oven to 350ΒΊF. Spray a 9 x 13 oven safe dish with non-stick cooking spray.

In a large bowl gently mix together the chicken, cream of chicken soup, sour cream, green chilies, & 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese. Spoon about 1/2-3/4 cup of the mixture in a line down the center of each tortilla, roll, and place seam side down in prepared baking dish. Repeat until all tortillas are filled.

Note: you will have about 1-1 1/2 cups of the mixture remaining; spread this on top (down the center) of the prepared enchiladas & top with remaining cheddar cheese. Bake at 350ΒΊF for 35-45 minutes, until hot and bubbly.

Serve with pico de gallo, sour cream, and fresh chopped cilantro.

    Any dish that my mom made that incorporated Cream of Chicken or Cream of Mushroom soup was ALWAYS a favorite of my brother’s and mine growing up! And now it’s my ultimate comfort food! Sounds amazing!

    Thank you so much for posting this recipe! I made them tonight and they were a hit with most of my family. My 3 year old ended up just dipping chips in the sauce part πŸ™‚ But the rest of us ate it up! Thanks!
