Hey y’all! Have I got a recipe you will love. These Green Chili Chicken Enchiladas will have your family and friends begging for more! Y’all this dish is perfect as a freezer meal to help tame those busy weeknights. It’s perfect to make ahead and bake for a potluck. It’s even more perfect because a rotisserie chicken works great and takes the time and extra cooking out of the meal.
This easy cheesy Green Chili Chicken Enchiladas Casserole is so delicious, even the leftovers will be gobbled up.
You might have some leftovers but they won’t last long. This is a recipe where the casserole dish looks licked clean with my family and friends.
If you know me, you know I live and die by a rotisserie chicken. I purchase at least one a week. This is one of those recipes I love to use that chicken. But, did know you can totally skip the chicken and make this dish vegetarian? Well you can. No chicken required equals Green Chili Enchiladas. Guess what? That are just as good! The cheesy filling is the key.
Lacie’s Easy Peasy Pleasy Tips
- My favorite use for this recipe is to mix up the whole batch, then fill the corn tortillas and place half in a casserole dish for tonight and half in a dish that I can freeze to bake a few weeks later for an easy weeknight meal.
- I use an aluminum 8×8 pan or even a glass casserole dish for the freezer.
- Use a layer of plastic wrap then a layer of foil to seal before freezing.
- Get your paper towels ready early to layer between cooked corn tortillas.
