I love a little guacamole on my enchiladas. So if it is good on top of enchiladas, wouldn’t it be good on the inside too? Today’s recipe is just that, enchiladas made with guacamole inside them. These guacamole chicken enchiladas are full of flavor!
They have a filling you make with a combination guac, tomatoes, green chilies, green onion, cilantro, and chicken. Fill corn tortillas with the chicken mixture and place seam side down in the 9 x 13 inch dish that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Top them off with some red sauce and cheese. Bake for about 15 minutes until warmed through and the cheese is melted. Then you are all set.
I made these guacamole chicken enchiladas using store bought guacamole that I picked up from Costco just to make life easier, but you can always use homemade if you prefer. You can also kick up the heat if you like with hotter tomatoes and enchilada sauce. For my family, mild is as hot as we go.
