Roasted Chicken and Cheese Enchiladas


  • 1 package (10 oz.)  Cacique® Enchilado, shredded

  • 2 (19 oz.) cans red enchilada sauce

  • 1 dozen corn tortillas

  • 1 whole roasted chicken, shredded

  • ½ cup green onions, thinly sliced

Preparation Method
Preheat oven to 350°F.

Spray a 9” x 13” baking dish with non-stick cooking spray and set aside. Place enchilada sauce in a saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Turn heat down to low to keep sauce warm. Dip corn tortillas in warm sauce for about 5 seconds each to soften. Place on a clean work surface and fill each tortilla with a scant ¼ cup chicken, about a tablespoon Cacique® Enchilado and some green onions. Roll tortillas tightly and place seam-side down in prepared baking dish.

Pour warm enchilada sauce over enchiladas. Sprinkle with remaining Cacique® Enchilado. Cover and bake for 10-15 minutes, until all the cheese is completely melted. Uncover and bake for 5 minutes more, or until cheese begins to brown. Let stand for about 3 minutes and serve hot.

To Freeze:

When enchiladas have cooled, wrap in a layer of plastic wrap and a layer of foil. Freeze for up to 30 days.

To Reheat:

Let thaw in refrigerator for 24 hours. Remove foil and plastic wrap. Replace foil to loosely cover. Bake in a 325°F oven for 20-25 minutes, or until heated through.

These enchiladas are fast and easy to make, and taste delicious. The roasted chicken adds nice flavor. As a variation, add ½ cup of sliced black olives or diced green chilies.
