These enchiladas freeze great!

This recipe takes a bit longer than I normally like to spend in the kitchen which is why I HIGHLY recommend you doubling the recipe and then freezing your second batch. That way you will have this comfort food ready to eat another time without doing all the work.


First you need to cook your chicken (You can toss it in a crock pot, boil it or bake it). I often use the crockpot or boil it. Then you need to shred the chicken. I just use 2 forks to shred it. It only takes a minute. You will need about 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts per pan of enchiladas.

Now you will combine all the “inside” ingredients so you will have the perfect stuffing for your enchiladas. You are going to need some homemade taco seasoning if you don’t have any seasoning packets
Next you just stuff the tortillas (flour or corn) and then roll them up and place them in a pan. Make sure you put the seam down.

Add your sauce, your cheese and bake! Before you know it you have a delicious dinner on the table!
