If you haven’t noticed, I’ve been on quite an enchilada kick lately. Spicy Chicken Enchilada Dip, Enchilada Stuffed Pepper Casserole, and Inside-Out Chicken Enchiladas all in the past couple months. Can you blame me? Addiction isn’t a big enough word. I just love the flavors, the ease, and of course the cheese! Enchiladas must have cheese, and that means I must love enchiladas!

You guys already know I love love Old El Paso, and this recipe is just another reason to stock up on all of their products. I used their Burrito sized soft tacos, their Red Enchilada Sauce, and their Taco Seasoning. I kid you not that I probably keep 10 packets of their Taco Seasoning on hand AT ALL TIMES. You never know when you need to add some flavor fast!

Ingredients

  • 1 lb cooked and shredded chicken (I used rotisserie chicken)
  • 1 (10 ounce) can Old El Paso Red Enchilada Sauce
  • 1 (1 ounce) packet Old El Paso Taco Seasoning
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 3 burrito sized Old El Paso soft flour tortillas
  • 3 cups Mexican blend cheese
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup crumbled cojita cheese (or feta) (optional)
  • Sour cream and avocado for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium/high heat. Add the chicken, 3/4 can enchilada sauce, taco seasoning, and cilantro and stir to combine. Reduce to a simmer and cook until heated through. Since the chicken should already be cooked this shouldn't take more than 2-3 minutes.
  3. In a separate large skillet (or you can drain the chicken skillet, putting the chicken aside, and use it), start assembling your pie. Start with one tortilla, topped with half of the chicken mixture, then one cup cheese. Repeat with one more tortilla, the rest of the chicken, and another cup cheese. Top with a third tortilla, the remaining enchilada sauce, and the remaining one cup cheese.
  4. Sprinkle with more chopped cilantro.
  5. Pop in the oven to cook for 20 minutes or until the sauce is fully bubbly and the cheese all melty and perfect.
  6. Remove from the oven and top with the diced tomatoes, cojita (or feta), sliced avocado, and sour cream.
  7. Enjoy!

Okay so I have never put any kind of frying pan or skillet into the oven. Could you give me an alternative size pan to use in the oven? Maybe even a big pie pan?
    Austin
    Do you not have a skillet (such as iron skillet), or frying pan with no plastic or rubber handles? Or are you asking because you just don't want to put them in an oven? An iron skillet is the best for cooking just about anything if it's greezed correctly and the skillet hasn't been washed with soap (soap ruins iron skillets, If the frying pan doesn't have anything plastic or rubber on it then it can go in oven with no problem, but if u don't Hv those. Then I assume a baking pan would work.

Your recipes look interesting and tasty. However, due to the long-running imbedded ads, it is nearly impossible to print. I copy and paste into a Word document faster than the script times out. I recognize that the as sponsors help pay for your blog. But, at some point enough is enough. Just sayin', as constructive feedback.

    I find this to be true on several food/recipe pages. Some are more loaded with ads and pop up distractions so, I don't visit those pages again. It is out of control and IS NOT FUN !! Just my 2 cents worth !!
    Peggy
    I absolutely agree.

    Hey Dave- I'm so sorry you (and other people) are having trouble. Are you clicking the "print" button to the right of the save button within the recipe? That should take you to a print friendly version. Unfortunately the ads are a must as the blog has a ton of expenses and I keep it free. The ads allow me to do that while still paying my bills. I work really hard to make sure the site is user friendly but bad ads always slip through the cracks. If you ever see one thats a problem, like a popup, please feel free to screen shot it and email me at [email protected] and Ill get rid of that ad. I def don't want popups on the site. So sorry again for the trouble, I appreciate everyone stopping by!

PASS THE SKILLET! I want this NOW!

Oh my gosh this looks insanely delish! I'm dying over that cheesy goodness!

I love enchiladas, and this looks so much easier than the traditional method -- love that cheese!
Jen @ The Weary Chef
25 mins for this cheesy-licious dinner is amazing! Trying this ASAP! :D

This is my first time to your site (your easy queso brought me here, can't wait to make it); lots of great ideas here. I make a very similar version of this, layering corn tortillas, pre-seasoned Mexican style chicken, green salsa, and a pile of cheese. Will have to try your red sauce version!
