Chicken Enchilada Bake

Prep Time
Total Time

8 servings

We like a rolled enchilada, but not always the rolling. Cheesy and authentic-tasting with a jalapeño kick, this chicken bake is prepped in just 20 minutes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is an easy weeknight recipe. This is an easy weeknight recipe. I also added half of an onion and a green pepper which I chopped and sauteed before adding to the mix. I also added a can of nacho cheese soup. It was very cheesy, but who doesn't like cheese?! I used boneless skinless chicken thighs which I seasoned with chipotle taco seasoning and baked before I shredded it. This would be great with cilantro, lime, black beans...I could go on and on. Definately will make again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was an excellent weekday dish. This was an excellent weekday dish. Like many of you, I tweaked the recipe to suit my preferences. I had leftover chicken from Sunday's dinner so this recipe was timely for a Monday night. Instead of enchilada sauce, I used a can of dice tomatoes and a dry pkg. of enchilada mix. I cut the tortillas into strips and sprinkled on top - easier to serve. Topped with shredded lettuce and a dollop of sour cream. Fast and easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful casserole! Wonderful casserole! I put a layer of tortillas on the bottom of the pan, then added the chicken and cheese, then cut up the remaining tortillas into strips to top it all like a previous review said to. I also used green enchilada sauce. Next time I'll try red and top with avocado. It was so easy, flavorful and fresh.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like most, I also changed this a tad. Like most, I also changed this a tad. I diced up my corn tortilla's, used 10 instead of six. I also used on jalapeno that was diced and deveined with no seeds. I also used a 4 oz can of Green Chilli's. Topped it off with mozzarella cheese, and baked till it was toasty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was so easy and delish! This was so easy and delish! I topped with avocado and sour cream. My very picky eight year old even asked me to make again. Next time I might coat the tortillas in the sauce first as they were a little dry. I thought we would have leftovers but everyone had seconds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This recipe was delicious! This recipe was delicious! I dipped tortillas in sauce and layered like lasagna - tortillas, chicken mixure, cheese, tortillas, chicken, cheese, etc. Needed 2 cans of sauce and 12 tortillas. No leftovers here - next time I need a double batch!

This was great; it was fast, easier & healthier than the authentic way i'm used to make it. I might drizle a little sause over the top next time to soften the top layer for easy cutting. I will be making this again soon. Thank you!
