Comfort Foods Easy Cheesy Enchiladas

Easy cheesy enchiladas

This is a dish that takes well to improvisation: use leftover chicken, beef or seafood in the filling. Or check out our veggie options. Leftover cooked vegetables are nice, or you can add in beans or corn kernels. The sky’s the limit! Corn tortillas are traditional, but use flour ones if that’s what your family prefers.

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the chicken, corn, 1 cup of cheese, 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper.
  3. Spoon the mixture into the tortillas and roll. Place them seam-side down into a baking dish.
  4. Top with enchilada sauce and remaining 1/2 cup of cheese.
  5. Bake 15-20 minutes, until cheese is bubbling.
  6. Sprinkle with cilantro and serve!

  • 8 small tortillas
  • 1 cup enchilada sauce (I use Old El Paso, but use whichever is your favorite!)
