  • 2 cups cooked and shredded chicken 🍗

  • 1 can (10 oz) red enchilada sauce 🌶️
  • 1 can (4 oz) diced green chilies 🌶️
  • 8 flour tortillas 🌮
  • Salt and black pepper to taste 🧂


  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Prepare the Filling: In a mixing bowl, combine shredded chicken, softened cream cheese, shredded cheddar cheese, chopped green onions, and chopped cilantro. Season with salt and black pepper to taste. Mix until well combined.
  3. Assemble the Enchiladas: Lay out a flour tortilla and spoon a generous amount of the chicken and cream cheese mixture down the center. Roll up the tortilla tightly and place it seam-side down in the greased baking dish. Repeat this process with the remaining tortillas.
  4. Prepare the Enchilada Sauce: In a separate bowl, mix the red enchilada sauce with the diced green chilies. Pour the sauce over the assembled enchiladas.
  5. Bake the Enchiladas: Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for about 20-25 minutes, or until the enchiladas are heated through and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  6. Serve and Enjoy: Remove the enchiladas from the oven and let them cool slightly before serving. Garnish with additional chopped cilantro if desired.
