Chicken Enchiladas

With 2 weeks until school starts and only working part-time, I haven't had any excuses to make microwave meals. No, that's not really how I feel about it. I love having this time to cook dinner and have it ready when my husband comes home! Maybe all these home-cooked meals are making up in advance for all the late school nights where we have Lean Cuisine or stop by Chipotle on the way home. (Not bad alternatives, really.)

Loosely based on this pin, here is my recipe.

Easy Chicken Enchilada Recipe


  • 6-8 small tortillas 
  • 1 package grilled chicken strips  (mine were from Costco)
  • 1 can of enchilada sauce (your choice of red, green, white) 
  • 8 oz. shredded cheese - or 1 small bag
  • 1 can of refried beans
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes 
  • 8x8 or 2 qt baking pan

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Roll chicken, (not all of your) cheese, beans, and tomatoes into the torillas and line up on your baking pan. Pour can of enchilada sauce over the little "burritos" and cover with remaining shredded cheese.  Bake for 20-25 mins and enjoy!
