White Chicken Enchiladas

A few weekends ago I had a craving for white chicken enchiladas. I didn’t have a go-to recipe to make but I have been lucky enough to have two friends bring me their homemade white chicken enchiladas on various occasions. Both meals were amazing so naturally I texted them both, got their recipes and combined them. Then I tweaked the recipe a bit and boom…baked white chicken enchiladas

The slow cooked chicken was so amazing that I could have stopped here and just made chicken tacos. But I kept going! Also, if you’re low on time you can shred a rotisserie chicken for this step instead.Trader Joe's Chile Lime Seasoning BlendTHIS SEASONING. Oh my gosh, y’all. It’s incredible. Just enough salt and just a tad bit of spice.white chicken enchiladas ingredientswhite chicken enchiladas You can substitute corn tortillas for flour if you prefer. I used low carb flour tortillas.white chicken enchiladas bakedSO GOOD. The recipe yields about 10 enchiladas so I cooked one batch and froze the other for another night.

And you know what this meal is perfect for? Your freezer, your neighbor, your new mama friend, your co-worker going through a difficult time or anyone really.
