In The Kitchen: SPICY QUESO CHICKEN ENCHILADAS


I would just like to begin this by saying I am NOT in any way shape or form being endorsed by Old El Paso.. I think I just really like their products or something.  I never realized how much I purchase their products until I took this picture lololol.

Anyways on to the Ingredients!

Ingredient List:

2 Cups Cooked Shredded Chicken
6 Tortillas (I use corn)
1 Cup Shredded Mexican Cheese
1 Medium Onion
2 Large Tomatoes
2 Stalks Green Onion
8 oz. Salsa
5 oz. Queso Sauce
Taco Seasoning
Hot Sauce (To Taste)
Sour Cream (Optional)


Dice your onions.

Pre-Heat oven to 350 Degree's F.


Dice your tomatoes.


Add some oil to your pan.


Saute your diced onions.


Portion out about a 1/6 of your diced tomatoes. 


While your onions are sauteing you can chop your green onions.  

Leave your reserved tomatoes & green onions to the side.


Add in your tomatoes.


Add in your cooked & shredded chicken.


Mix in 1/2 of the Taco Seasoning.


Now for your hot sauce.  I like things SPICY.  But not everyone likes it as spicy as me.  So I would recommend taste testing as you go along.  Start with a couple of splashes and build up for more flavor.  I use about 1/4 cup and I was sweatin' when I was eating lol.


While your filling is cooking together you can start on your sauce.

Combine your salsa (if you're using the exact same products above it's about half a jar the Salsa.)


And mix in your Queso sauce (roughly 1/3 of the Queso jar) and stir together.


Microwave your Tortillas in the Microwave about 30 sec.  They are more pliable this way if you use them cold they tend to crack a lot easier.


Add a ladle full of sauce to the bottom of your pan.


Fill each tortilla with your Chicken, Onion & Tomato filling.


Place seam side down.


And repeat until you have all of your enchiladas in a row!


Cover w/ the rest of the remaining sauce.


Sprinkle your cheese on top.

Into the oven for 20 min. 


Top w/ the reserve chopped tomatoes & green onions from earlier and you're done!  

Add a dollop of Sour Cream if you please!

Btw's this recipe works great w/ Steak too :)!

  8. These look SO good Lisa and it's funny you show the taco seasoning because Jakob and I pack our suitcases with like 10 of those every time we go to the US since Switzerland does not quite understand how to make Mexican food hehe. I love that you add the green onions on top! Yum
