These Easy Chicken Enchiladas with Green Sauce are made with corn tortillas, shredded chicken (you can use rotisserie chicken), sour cream, green chilies, taco seasoning, monterey jack cheese, and green enchilada sauce.

This is the best chicken enchilada recipe I’ve ever made! I really like using corn tortillas and adding sour cream and green chilies to the filling. It takes these chicken enchiladas to the next level!

I made these chicken enchiladas with green sauce, but you can also use red. Both taste great!

Ingredients

  • 12 corn tortillas
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded chicken breast ( you can use rotisserie or make your own shredded chicken)
  • 2 cups monterey jack cheese
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 4oz cans of green chiles
  • 1 packet of taco seasoning, or 2 teaspoons
  • 1 1/2 cups green enchilada sauce

How to make these creamy, cheesy enchiladas

  • Mix the shredded chicken, part of the cheese, the sour cream, green chiles, and taco seasoning.
  • Warm up the tortillas, so they are easier to work with. They still might split when rolling, but that’s okay. You won’t be able to tell after they are done cooking.
  • Pour 1/2 cup of enchilada sauce on the bottom of the casserole dish
  • Scoop about 1/4 cup of the enchilada filling into the tortillas and roll tightly. Place them into the casserole dish.
  • Pour the remaining enchilada sauce over the prepared enchiladas and top with the remaining cheese.
  • Bake for 25 minutes, or until cheese and sauce are bubbling.

Do you have questions?

Do I have to use rotisserie chicken?

If you don’t want to use rotisserie chicken, an easy alternative is cooking chicken breast in a dutch oven (it’s my favorite way to get shredded chicken). It’s easy and straightforward.

How to roll corn tortillas without them breaking

Corn tortillas are pretty fragile. Warming them up in the microwave for 30-60 seconds will help them become more pliable and less likely to break. Even if they still do break, that’s okay. You won’t be able to tell after the enchiladas are done cooking.
