Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Lainey39

These are now my family's favorite enchiladas after finding this recipe on the back of Sargento cheese package. They are so good and filling. They come together very easily if you have cooked chicken on hand. I usually already have pre-cooked chicken on hand. For that, I like to use Crock Pot Shredded Chicken Breasts for Freezing - OAMC #188329 and then I skip the cooking the chicken part and just add all the ingredients to the chicken. The shredded cooked chicken works perfectly for this recipe.

Quick, easy and tasty! I used pre-cooked, diced chicken but can definitely see how shredded would work better. I also thought I had black beans in the pantry but didn't, so I subbed red kidney beans. Served with sour cream, pico de gallo and chunks of avocado. Yum! Thanks for sharing Lainey! ***Made for PRMR***
