So quick and easy to make and so full of flavor, it’s a delicious meal that the whole family will love. All cooked in one skillet on the stovetop, this Mexican casserole requires little clean-up time. Which is always welcome after a long day!
These chicken enchiladas are delicious as-is, but there are a few easy swaps you can make to suit your tastes:
- Add more spice: Mild in spice, even your pickiest eaters will be tucking into this! But, to spice things up, use a spicy enchilada sauce and taco seasoning, you can even add a little cayenne in for an extra kick. Try adding in some fresh jalapeños with the onions.
- Add more veggies: This is a great recipe to use up any vegetables you have in your fridge. Bell peppers and mushrooms are both great additions and can be added in with the onions.
- Make it gluten-free: Simply use GF certified tortilla wraps. CHEF’S CRAFT chicken is gluten-free!
- Add more toppings: Top this enchilada casserole with sour cream, avocado, tomato and fresh cilantro. Don’t like cilantro? Swap it out for parsley instead so that you still get a nice fresh flavor.
