Mix soups, sour cream, chilis, and 1/2 the shredded cheese together. Cut up chicken into cubes or shred, add to the mixture. Place about 1/3 cup of the mixture in each tortilla shell and wrap up, follow with 7 more shells. Add to 9x13" pan and spread remaining mixture over the wrapped tortillas. Top with remaining cheese and bake at 350* for 30 mins or until cheese is golden brown.
As many others have commented, I use low sodium/low fat soup when making this recipe. Also my recipe uses only the cream of chicken mixed with enchilada sauce rather than sour cream. I spread a bit of refried beans onto each tortila, mix soup and sauce with chicken, sprinkle w/cheese. Family loves!
When the dish was FINALLY done, it was ok. The directions said to add the cut up chicken to the mix of soup and cheese, it did not say that the CHICKEN SHOULD BE COOKED FIRST! That would be a good addition to the recipe. Thanks
I baked my chicken breasts fn the oven on 350° for 45 minutees (covered with foil). then shredded by using 2 forks. Used low sodium cream of celery & cream of chicken soups....but only 1/2 of each can. Used only a tsp. sour cream to top each enchilada...Then used salsa instead of chili peppers.
use more chilies and you don't need to creamy soups AT ALL. save the sour cream too. make a good flavored chicken breast and use corn tortillas for better use of carbs. use low fat cheese or less of whole white cheddar cheese. add a green enchilada sauce over the tops and enjoy. less calories
How about using corn tortillas instead? The chicken definitely needs to be cooked ahead of time like the traditional recipe. You can boil the chicken in a spicy broth with garlic clove, onion, salt and pepper. Thanks for the recipe.
I make ones that are close to these, but I use a rue (1 T butter healthy choice and flour wheat and 1 cup water with ckn boullion cube) and then add 1/2 8oz jar salsa. This would definately cut the sodium
I make a similar recipe, using a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store and adding diced and sauted onion and green pepper. Through in some cayenne pepper and chili powder, and top with green tomatillo sauce to serve - very yummy!
Was good! Changed a few things used less sour cream, added enchiladas sauce and used 98%fat free soup. Want to play with it some more to bring down calories...the way I made it brought it down to 385. I will make again!
I'm not sure why people are so nasty when they comment but, it really is not necessary. This is a good recipe, & is healthy. If you all want a 200 calorie meal save your negative remarks for elsewhere, this post doesn't deserve them.
Im sorry but GROSS. Also there are no instructions for cooking the chicken. An inexperienced cook would need these details. Making them with a sauce from simmered canned crushed tomatoes,spices & water , corn tortillas & topped with low fat cheese would make them tastier and lower in calories.
I made the slow cooker salsa chicken yesterday but saved it for a meal today - will wrap the chicken in corn tortillas and mix the chicken with enchilada sauce, bake in oven with cheese, yumm!!
i make something similar but with just cream of chicken and grated onion in the sauce as well as a bottle of green taco sauce mixed into sauce. I also put a little sliver of cream cheese in each and some green onions and olives on top!
