How to make white chicken enchiladas Casserole

There is an infinity of ways you can make enchiladas. But these white chicken enchiladas are irresistible and are our favorite version. 

We use cooked chicken, mozzarella cheese and cream cheese, and homemade taco seasoning to make the filling. Rotisserie chicken is perfect for this enchiladas recipe and we use chicken breast or thigh meat for this recipe.

Assemble the enchiladas by filling each flour tortilla with about 1/4 cup of the chicken mixture then roll it up and place it in a casserole dish.

Add the broccoli florets, and pour the mixture of cream and cheese on top.

Bake the enchiladas casserole for 22 to 25 minutes or until the top starts to brown and the sauce is bubbly. Easy!

6. Bake the chicken enchiladas in the oven for 22-25 minutes and then switch the broiler on for a few minutes to crisp up the top and brown the cheese. Sprinkle the creamy chicken enchiladas with fresh chopped herbs and chili pepper flakes if you like. Enjoy! ❤️
