Prepare the ingredients before making Chicken Enchiladas in your home. Then, follow these steps below to serve Chicken Enchiladas for your family or friends.

Ingredients: Chicken Enchiladas

  • 3 large chicken breasts (or 4 med to small)
  • 28 oz Mild Red Enchilada Sauce
  • 3 cup Shredded Cheese (or 4 cups, I like the Fiesta Blend, but Cheddar is fine too)
  • 8 Burrito Style Flour Tortillas
  • The Rice
  • 1 box Zateran's Spanish Rice
  • 1 can diced tomatoes (I like the ones with the green chilies)
  • 1 Water
  • 1 Butter (optional)

How to Make Chicken Enchiladas

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 11 steps you must follow to make Chicken Enchiladas in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • Boil the chicken breasts until cooked (usually 20-30 mins). (Feel free to grill or bake if you prefer.)
  • Step 2
  • Make the Zateran's rice according to the instructions on the box. Make the rice in a larger pan than what seems necessary (all the other ingredients will be added to this).
  • Step 3
  • Preheat oven to 350°
  • Step 4
  • While the rice is cooking shred the cooked chicken. (Or dice it if you prefer that texture.)
  • Step 5
  • When rice is done, add shredded (or diced) chicken, half of your cheese, and half of your enchilada sauce. Stir it all together. (This is a good opportunity to add any other ingredients you might enjoy such as, thawed/cooked corn, beans, or cilantro.)
  • Step 6
  • Grease a 9 x13 pan.
  • Step 7
  • Using a large serving spoon, spoon the rice mixture into the tortillas. (If the tortillas are stiff you can heat them in the microwave a little to soften them.) As you roll reach tortilla up, place it into the 9x13 pan. (I usually get about 8 tortillas, but they are pretty large.)
  • Step 8
  • Once the pan is full of tortillas (I do end up using all of the rice mixture for that), pour the rest of the enchilada sauce over the top of them, evenly.
  • Step 9
  • Top the pan with the rest of the cheese
  • Step 10
  • Cover the pan (aluminium foil works well) and place it in the preheated oven (350°) and bake for 30 mins. (I usually cover the pan with aluminum foil for the first 20 mins, then I take it off for the last 10 mins, I switch my oven to broil for the last 5 mins because I love over cooked cheese, but all that isn't necessary, you can just cover it if you want.)
  • Step 11
  • Serve warm. I like to top them with sour cream and avocados. Sometimes hot sauce or salsa.
