For the Enchiladas:
  • 3 - 4 chicken breasts, boneless

  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cans green chili peppers
  • 1 package flour tortillas

For the Enchilada seasoning:
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1/4 cayenne


    Preheat oven to 350 degrees

    Sautee chicken breasts in skillet and let cool. In medium skillet, melt butter, add finely chopped onion, and cook until translucent. Once onion is cooked, add drained green chili peppers and enchilada seasoning. Mix and set aside.

    Dice or shred chicken breasts. In a large bowl, mix together chicken, soup, sour cream and onion mixture.

    Fill tortillas with mixture and roll. Put in baking dish. Pour remaining mixture over top. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Remove from oven, cover with cheese and return to oven for 5 minutes until cheese is melted and bubbly. 
    Quick Tips:

    • To easily shred chicken, place in KitchenAid stand mixer with paddle attachment and mix on low speed. 
    • If you have a larger container of sour cream, then you can mix about 3 TBSP with any remaining chicken mixture and spread on top of enchiladas before baking.
    • This is a great recipe to make ahead of time and freeze. 
    • Also, great as a dip option!
