Chicken Enchilada Casserole Recipe: This Cheesy 5-Ingredient Enchilada Casserole Recipe Is So Easy to Make

Four ingredients, really, if you want to count the two types of cheese as one ingredient. This cheesy chicken enchilada casserole recipe is simple to make and will warm you up. You could top it with sliced avocados, fresh cilantro, chopped jalapenos, sour cream or guacamole

Cuisine: American/Mexican
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 45 minutes
Total Time: 55 minutes
Servings: 6

Ingredients

  • 1 pound boneless chicken breasts, cut into chunks
  • 2 cans (10 ounces each) enchilada sauce
  • corn tortillas
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  •  1 1/2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Put the chicken and enchilada sauce into a saucepan. Cover and cook gently, stirring often, until chicken is cooked through, about 15 minutes. Remove the chicken to a bowl and shred. (Keep the enchilada sauce it cooked in.)
  2. Spread some of the enchilada sauce on the bottom of a casserole dish. Cover with 2 tortillas, 1/3 of the shredded chicken, 1/3 of the remaining enchilada sauce and 1/3 of the cheese. Top with 2 more tortillas and repeat layers, ending with cheese.
  3. Bake in a preheated 375-degree F oven for about 30 minutes.
