Cream Cheese Chicken Enchiladas are a creamy twist on traditional enchiladas. They’re stuffed with a flavorful combination of seasoned chicken and cream cheese, wrapped in tortillas, and smothered in a tangy enchilada sauce. Here’s a recipe for Cream Cheese Chicken Enchiladas to get you started:


  • 8 small flour tortillas
  • 2 cups cooked chicken, shredded
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack or cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 can (10 ounces) red enchilada sauce
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional toppings: chopped cilantro, diced tomatoes, sliced green onions, sliced black olives


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish with cooking spray or butter.
  2. Combine the shredded chicken, softened cream cheese, shredded cheese, sour cream, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, salt, and pepper in a mixing bowl. Mix until all of the ingredients are evenly distributed.
  3. Warm the flour tortillas in the microwave for a few seconds to make them pliable and easier to work with.
  4. Spoon a generous portion of the chicken and cream cheese mixture onto each tortilla. Roll up the tortillas and place them seam side down in the prepared baking dish.
  5. In a small bowl, mix the enchilada sauce with a little water to thin it out if desired. Pour the enchilada sauce evenly over the rolled tortillas, covering them completely.
  6. Sprinkle additional shredded cheese on top if desired.
  7. Bake the enchiladas in the preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  8. Remove the enchiladas from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes.
  9. Garnish the Cream Cheese Chicken Enchiladas with chopped cilantro, diced tomatoes, sliced green onions, and sliced black olives, if desired.
  10. Serve the enchiladas warm, and enjoy the creamy and flavorful combination of chicken, cream cheese, and tangy enchilada sauce.
