Ingredients

  • 2 cups Old El Paso™ mild green chile enchilada sauce
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded deli rotisserie chicken
  • 2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese (8 oz)
  • 2 cans (4.5 oz each) Old El Paso™ chopped green chiles
  • 8 Old El Paso™ flour tortillas for burritos (8 inch)
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream or half-and-half
  • Sour cream, pickled jalapeño chiles, chopped fresh cilantro, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350° F. Spray bottom and sides of 13 x 9-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Spread 1/2 cup of the enchilada sauce in bottom of baking dish.
  • 2
    In large bowl, mix chicken, 1 1/2 cups of the cheese, 1 cup of the enchilada sauce and the chopped green chiles until evenly combined.
  • 3
    Spoon about 1/3 cup of the chicken mixture down center of each tortilla. Roll up tortillas; arrange, seam sides down, in baking dish.
  • 4
    In small bowl, mix remaining enchilada sauce and cream. Pour mixture on top of enchiladas; sprinkle with remaining cheese. Spray sheet of foil with cooking spray; cover baking dish with foil, sprayed side down.
  • 5
    Bake 30 minutes. Remove foil; bake 5 to 10 minutes longer or until cheese is melted and lightly browned. Serve with sour cream, pickled jalapeño chiles and chopped fresh cilantro, if desired.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Don’t have rotisserie chicken on hand? No problem! Use cooked and shredded boneless skinless chicken breasts instead.
  • tip 2
    These enchiladas are on the milder side. To spice things up, add 1 to 2 seeded and diced jalapeño chiles to the enchilada filling. Or top baked enchiladas with pickled jalapeños!
