Chicken Enchiladas

Wow... sorry I went MIA... life is a little crazy right now. It comes in waves, lately I've been super busy, but I think I see it chilling out a bit... I think. Unfortunately, I have done basically 0 baking :( .

This is Dads- with salsa and peppers on top... i used sour cream

I did make my version of my dad's famous Chicken Enchiladas, I think his recipe came from the Members Mark chicken breasts in a can.

[Printable Recipe]



2 cans 13oz Members Mark premium chicken breast in water, drained

1 cup chili salsa

1 4oz can chopped green chilies

2.5 cup Heavy whipping cream

2 cups shredded monterey jack cheese

10 8" flour tortillas


1- combine salsa, chiles and chicken


2- place mixture in tortillas and roll (I added mixed Mexican cheese in the tortillas too)


3- place seam side down in 9 by 13 baking dish


Note: these are not 8 inch tortillas - they are much bigger burrito size - we only fit 5 in a pan

4- pour whipping cream over top ( dad only bought a small thing of it, but it gave me 2 cups, and it seemed to work fine)


5- bake for 45 mins at 350 degrees

6- sprinkle cheese on top with ten minutes remaining


These were really good, very cheesy - I let dad help me and we loaded it up... but cheesy is good. I want to try them again with smaller tortillas - i liked the cheese in the middle too :-D This was a good and easy dinner.


  1. These are decadently good, and easy to make. If you don't like spicy stuff, they are quite mild by themselves, which is why I kick it up with hot salsa and jalapenos.

    Oh, and they make for great leftovers. They nuke well.

  2. I made these over the weekend and they were really yummy. I like things a bit more spicey though so next time I am thinking about adding taco seasoning in with the chicken mixture. Thanks for the recipe :)

  3. Glad you liked it, the best part of these is that you can add or take away from it and it will still be yummy. Taco seasoning, or a hotter salsa would be good with it. I kept it mild because I didn't know if my mom would be eating it too. She doesn't like spicy.
