The Best Enchilada Recipe In The World

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

This truly is the best enchilada recipe in the world! You know, when it has lots of chicken and it’s made with flour tortillas it will be super yummy!

I swear, my friend Kathleen comes up with the best recipes and I will tell you why. She likes to make a different recipe every night for her husband. I tend to use the same recipes over and over again.

I bet I have made that chicken enchilada recipe with the green chilies, sour cream and cream of chicken soup over 100 times in my lifetime. Maybe even 500 times. Anyway, this recipe is a bit different. This is my favorite enchilada or lasagna pan: All-Clad 59906 Stainless Steel 15 by 12 by 2.25-Inch Lasagna Pan Cookware, Silver

I went to a neighborhood dinner and Kathleen made this enchilada recipe. The dinner was a Mexican themed dinner with really cute decorations and they served these enchiladas, lime rice, salad, chips, and salsa. I remember eating more than my share of the salsa and chips! I will share one of my salsa recipes down below as well.
