Easy 6 Ingredient Chicken Enchiladas

I've tried more complicated enchilada recipes, but this is the standing favorite. The spiciness level is really easy to manage by what salsa and chilies are used. I use hot chilies, 1/2 cup of medium salsa, and 1/2 cup of hot salsa. You can also change the cheese if you wish, I will sometimes use colby or mozzarella depending on what I have most of. I use shredded chicken breasts, but any chicken should work fine. Fresh cilantro tastes good in the salsa mix, but that would make it 7 ingredients, so I left that out! Enjoy!

directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Mix the salsa and green chilies together in a medium bowl.
  • Add the shredded chicken to the salsa mixture.
  • Roll the chicken/salsa mix in the tortillas and place seam-side down in a 13 x 9” glass baking dish.
  • Pour the whipping cream over the top. It will not cover the enchiladas, but make sure to get a coating of whipping cream all over.
  • Cover and bake for 30 minutes or until the whipping cream is bubbly.
  • Uncover, sprinkle cheese on top and bake until cheese is melted and at desired crispiness.
