Layered Chicken Enchiladas

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure policy.

My family loves chicken enchiladas. My daughter especially. That is usually what she requests for her birthday dinner.

Sometimes, I can get super frustrated when making chicken enchiladas with corn tortillas. Sometimes, I don’t want to take the extra step to warm the tortillas properly and they tear as I roll up the enchiladas. Other times, I take the time to warm the tortillas, but they still end up tearing once I place them in the baking dish.

There is no warming or rolling corn tortillas needed with these layered chicken enchiladas. Instead, they get layered, like noodles in a lasagna. I love this because no warming or rolling is needed to make this. It comes together quickly and tastes amazing. This is a new favorite for chicken enchiladas at my house.
