Ingredients

  • 3 cups cooked and shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 10 ounces Enchilada Sauce
  • 1/2 cup Buffalo sauce (store-bought or click for recipe)
  • 8 ounces shredded cheddar cheese divided
  • 1 can 10 ounces Rotel tomatoes
  • 12 flour tortillas burrito size
  • 1 can 10-3/4 ounces condensed cream of celery soup
  • 1/2 cup blue cheese salad dressing
  • 4 ounces low fat cream cheese
  • crumbled blue cheese
  • Optional Toppings: blue cheese chopped roma tomatoes, chopped celery, sliced green onions, freshly chopped cilantro, ranch, sour cream

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with nonstick spray. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine cooked chicken, enchilada sauce, buffalo sauce, rotel tomatoes, and 1 ½ cups cheddar cheese. Set aside.
  • In a medium saucepan, heat soup and dressing until just bubbly. Stir in the cream cheese until melted and then the remaining cheddar cheese (leave a bit for the top of the enchiladas as well) until melted. Take off heat and set aside.
  • Place chicken mixture in the center of each tortilla (about ¼ cup) and roll the tortilla to create the enchilada. Place in the baking dish seam side down.
  • Pour the cream cheese mixture over the top of the enchiladas and use a spoon to smooth out if the mixture is a bit thick. Sprinkle with more cheddar cheese (optional) and sprinkle with a bit of blue cheese crumbles.
  • Bake at 350F for 30 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the tortillas cooked through, browned.
  • Top with extra toppings as desired.
  • Enjoy!
  • **NOTES: If you prefer less spicy, you can use a can of regular tomatoes instead of the Rotel tomatoes. If you want them even spicier, add in some chopped jalapeños!
