Recipe Thursday - Chicken Enchiladas

Each Thursday, I am going to be sharing a recipe with you!I will pick a recipe from my collection and I will be sharing where I got the recipe and everything. But I am going to include my own photo of the finished food, the original recipe, and try and share the things I changed when I made it!

I would love your help too! If you have a great recipe, especially week-night dinner recipes (but I would love all kinds of recipes) - please share it with me, by emailing me at I will try it out and feature it on my blog! If you have cooking tips or anything else in regards to cooking and food - please email me!

This week's Recipe:
This is another meal that I started to make in the first few years of my marriage and have kept changing things until now it is perfect! At least perfect to the tastes of my family - but I've made it for friend gatherings and it always has rave reviews!

Chicken Enchiladas
by DeDe Smith

2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
18 corn tortillas
Grated Cheese
{I sometimes add spanish rice to this as well and I serve it with tator-tots}

2 cans cream of chicken soup
16 oz sour cream
1 can of (red) enchilada sauce
small can of green chilies
1 can black beans

Cook and season chicken (I use salt and Mrs. Dash). I like to cook the chicken in my crockpot all day with a can of cream of chicken soup. Then when I am ready to put the meal together, I just use 2 forks and cut up the tender chicken right in the crockpot. It works great!

In a large bowl - combine all the ingredients for the sauce. Mix well.

In a deep rectangle pan - put a very small amount of the sauce at the bottom.

Then layer 6 of the tortillas (overlapping) at the bottom of the pan.

Add half of the chicken and cover with cheese.

Top with 6 more overlapping tortillas.

Cover the tortillas with half of the sauce.

Add the remaining chicken and cover with cheese.

Then top with the last 6 tortillas, the remaining sauce, and cheese again.

Bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes until bubbly!

Dede this sounds good. I am going to try this. A salad would be good with it to.
