Enchiladas for Two

I’m copying this recipe over from the old blog. This is one of my favorite recipes that I’ve posted so far. Enjoy!


I got the idea for this recipe from Like Mother Like Daughter, but ended up making it mostly just based off what I remembered from growing up, and what ingredients I had available.

Enchiladas for Two
1 can chicken
1/4 lime (or 1 tsp. lime juice)
black pepper
1 tbsp. olive oil
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 can green chili enchilada sauce
3/4 c. cheese, approximately
4 medium flour tortillas


  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. In a sauce pan, combine olive oil, drained chicken, lime juice, and pepper to taste.
  3.  Add in cream cheese and mix until combined thoroughly.
  4.  Pour a bit of enchilada sauce in bottom of a 9×13 baking dish.
  5. Dip a tortilla in the sauce (both sides) then fill with a fourth of the chicken mixture.
  6. Roll up tortilla and push to the end of the pan.
  7. Continue with the rest of the tortillas, refilling the dish with sauce as needed.
  8. Pour the rest of the enchilada sauce over the tortillas.
  9. Sprinkle cheese over enchiladas.
  10. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 15 minutes.
  11. Uncover and bake an additional 10-15 minutes, until cheese is melted completely and to your desired level of golden-brown.
