We take Mexican food seriously, and these microwave enchiladas are seriously amazing. We’re talking bubbly, cheesy, just-like-the-real-deal chicken enchiladas, 20 minutes start to finish and no oven required. Tasting is believing.

  • 2 1/4 cups canned mild enchilada sauce

  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • 8 corn tortillas (6 inch)
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 3/4 cup sour cream

    In medium bowl, mix 1/2 cup of the enchilada sauce, the chicken, seasoning mix and 3/4 cup of the cheese.

    Spray 8-inch square (2-quart) microwavable baking dish with cooking spray. Place 1/2 cup of the enchilada sauce in bottom of dish. Working with 1 tortilla at a time, fill with heaping 1/4 cup chicken mixture, and roll to seal; place in baking dish seam side down. Repeat with remaining tortillas.

  • This recipe is family friendly but can be easily spiced up using medium or hot enchilada sauce in lieu of mild.
  • Shredded Cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese can be substituted for Mexican cheese blend in this recipe, if desired.
