I got this recipe out of this month's Southern Living and it was a huge hit!
The recipe: 3 1/2 cups chopped cooked chicken (I used a rotisserie chicken)
2/3 cup onion and garlic mixture
2 4oz cans chopped green chiles
1 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
3 10oz cans enchilada sauce divided
2 cups shredded Mexican four cheese blend, divided
8 burrito size flour tortillas

1. Preheat oven tp 425. Stir together first 4 ingredients, 1 1/2 cups enchilada sauce and 1 cup cheese.
2. Spoon about 1/2 cup chicken mixture down center of each tortilla; roll tortillas up and place seam side down in lightly greased 13x9 baking dish. Pour remaining sauce over enchiladas. Sprinkle with remaining 1 cup cheese.
3. Bake covered at 425 for 20 minutes; uncover and bake 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and golden brown.

Onion and Garlic Mixture:
2 cups chopped onion
1 tbsp oil
3 garlic cloves, chopped

Saute onion in hot oil over medium heat 8 minutes or until tender; add garlic and saute 2 minutes. You may store in airtight container for up to 5 days.

Lisa, that sounds so good! We just went to Sam's this past weekend. I bought a rotisserie chicken and took all the meat off then stuck it in the freezer. My boys would love these enchiladas. Thanks!

Hi Lisa,
Wow! I was trying to make out a grocery list for today and I happened upon your post - YUM! Now I know what I will make for dinner. My family will love it and it is healthy for them too!
I love trying new recipes - I get so tired of making the same dinners each week. This is sure to put a smile on their faces.
Thanks for sharing!

I am so glad to have INTERNET again! This RVing sure plays havoc with blogging! :)
I am making a note of this one. I can't make it on the road, we have a micro/convection combo and I have no clue how to do the conversions!
But when I get home . . . YUM!!
