Restaurant-quality enchiladas have never been easier! These mouthwatering chicken- and cheese-filled corn tortillas are doused in spicy red sauce and baked in the oven. With just 5 ingredients and 10 minutes of hands-on time, you'll have a delicious dinner in less time than it takes to pick up takeout. The recipe is a Yummly original created by Sara Mellas.


  • 2 cans red enchilada sauce (10 oz. per can)
  • 12 ounces shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 1 cup Mexican cheese (shredded, for filling)
  • 12 soft corn tortillas (standard 6-inch diameter)
  • 1 cup Mexican cheese (shredded, for top)
  • cilantro (finely chopped, optional, for garnish)

    Made it, ate it, & not much to clean up! Easy, quick, & pretty tasty! Not sure why one reviewer reported bland? Had to be in their choice of sauce! My dear wife insisted on refried beans being added so I did, & have to say it was great!

    It was really good and easy to make. May or may not have used an extra can of enchilada sauce because l didn’t read the instructions properly. Learn from my mistakes, or don’t. It tastes good either way!

    This turned out surprisingly well. Very easy. Not as good as authentic Mexican but quick, easy, and still enjoyed by my family. I used boiled shredded chicken instead and substituted flour tortillas for the corn tortillas. I would make this again!

    Quick, easy and tastey. Not like you would get from a restaurant or other recipes, but the speed and simplicity makes it worth keeping and making, again.
