Easy Chicken Enchiladas using rotisserie chicken.
Recipe type: Entree
Cuisine: Mexican
Serves: 6
  • 1 Rotisserie Chicken
  • 1 pint Jar of your favorite salsa -- use more if you like it a little saucier.
  • 2 or 3 drops of your favorite hot sauce to taste -- I like a green sauce
  • Juice of ½ lime (optional, but nice)
  • 4 oz Cream Cheese (optional)
  • 4 to 6 oz Shredded Cheddar Cheese (or more depending how heavy handed you are)
  • 6 Tortillas
  • Toppings -- extra salsa, hot sauce, green onions, sour cream, avocados, etc.
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Defrost and warm up rotisserie chicken -- it is easier to shred when it is warm or room temperature...I use my hands but two forks work nicely too.
  3. Put shredded chicken in a saute pan, stir in salsa and hot sauce warming it through.
  4. If you are using the cream cheese cut it up in small cubes and melt into chicken and salsa mixture
  5. Fill tortilla with meat mixture, sprinkle with a little of the cheddar cheese.
  6. Put wrapped tortilla in a baking pan greased or sprayed to keep from sticking.
  7. Repeat
  8. Sprinkle the top of the tortillas with additional Cheddar Cheese
  9. Cover with foil and bake for about 15 to 20 minutes until cheese is melted and tortillas are hot.
  10. You can uncover and bake for a few minutes if you want to crisp them up.
