This is a definite family favorite dinner!  I start with rotisserie chicken to make it super easy!  I often sneak other veggies into the filling including finely chopped zucchini, mushrooms, grated carrots or whatever I have on hand.  The kids don’t even know they’re in there, it stretches the meal a bit and adds some good nutrition!

You can use corn or flour tortillas in this recipe, but I definitely prefer flour tortillas!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups chopped cooked chicken (I use rotisserie chicken)
  • 1 onion , finely diced
  • 1 yellow or green pepper , finely diced
  • 1 4 oz can of mild green chiles , undrained
  • 1 teaspoon cumin , divided
  • 4 oz cream cheese , softened
  • 1 cup plus 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 can cream of chicken or mushroom soup
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 3/4 cup monterey jack cheese

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Meanwhile, in a bowl combine 1 cup of milk, 1/2 teaspoon cumin, sour cream, cream of mushroom/chicken soup, and all but 2 tablespoons of the chile peppers. Set aside.
  2. Cook onions and bell peppers in butter until softened. Add chicken, remaining 2 tablespoons chiles, 1/2 teaspoon cumin, 1 tablespoon of milk and cream cheese. Stir until cream cheese is melted.
  3. Place 1/4 cup of filling on each tortilla and roll tightly. Put seam side down in a 9×13 pan. Pour the sauce evenly over the tortillas and cover with foil. Bake for 40 minutes. Uncover, sprinkle with cheese and bake an additional 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and browned.

  1. I love the chicken to try myself.

  2. Good recipe, but WAY too soupy. Maybe eliminate the cup of milk? The cream cheese, sour cream & cream of chicken soup are enough. Was more like Soup Enchiladas. Also needs more flavoring. Added garlic powder, salt, pepper & chili powder. A little tweaking & it would be a great recipe. :)

    • Hmm, I’m not sure why yours was soupy, I’ve made this several times and it always comes out perfectly. You could most certainly leave out the milk or reduce it if you prefer.

  3. Your recipe is fine! 1 cup of milk with the can of soup is perfect and makes sense. I also added a 28 oz can of green enchilada sauce to the filled and rolled enchiladas before baking. Perfect! Always some naysayer with cooking challenges! Thanks for a great recipe!
