Frugal Recipe: Chicken Enchiladas

This recipe is a newer addition to our family menu and we are happy to have it. The original version sounded a little bland so I added a few extra ingredients to spice it up. I think you will recognize them in the ingredients list. Just leave them out if don't like it a little spicy!


1 small onion, chopped and sautéed

1 can cream of chicken soup

1 can diced tomatoes

1 can green chilies

1 cup sour cream

1 cup cheddar cheese

1 cup mozzarella cheese

2 cups cubed cooked chicken

2 tsp chili powder

6 flour tortillas


Mix first nine ingredients and place 3 tablespoons on each tortilla. Roll up tightly and place seam side down in a 9 X 13 baking dish that has been coated with non-stick cooking spray. Top with any remaining mixture and bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes.

Can serve with a side of warm frijoles and Mexican rice.
