It had been quite some time since I made enchiladas at home.  I’m not really sure why.  We love Mexican dishes,  and enchiladas can be really easy to make, not to mention they make GREAT leftovers for several days (if they last that long) when stored in an air-tight container in the fridge.  I would imagine they would also keep well if frozen, to have on hand for busy nights.

Chicken & Cheese Enchiladas Are Easy and Quick

Enchiladas are so versatile, it’s easy to change them up every now and then.  You can use corn or flour tortillas,  add black beans and corn for it a bit of a Tex-Mex flare, add jalapenos if you want more ‘kick’ and you can use whatever cheese you prefer.  I usually buy 4 Cheese Mexican blend, but Monterey jack, cheddar or white cheddar all work wonderfully, as well.

Pick up a rotisserie chicken like I did and this easy dinner can be on the table in under an hour!

Just before they are about to come out of the oven, make a quick batch of Cilantro Lime Rice and you’ve got the perfect meal!

We can all agree, enchiladas may not be the most pretty dish,  but they sure are tasty!
