Share it:

I used what I had in my pantry and came up with this delicious recipe.

"Very delicious! I did not add any salt to this as the receipt called for it since other people said it was too much, but I did add in onions while I was cooking the chicken. I also add sour cream on top once it was removed from the oven, very good idea from a previous review I read. I was a little confused on what type of cheese to use but I use mild cheedar cheese and it turned out good, might use Mexican cheese next time. I think it would have been good if I would have thought about making a rice side with this though, but maybe next time. I will definitely make this dish again. "


Are you making this? 
2 Chicken breast halves; shredded
1 can Cream of mushroom soup; cream of chicken or celery can be used
1 cup Mild Pace salsa; mild
3 cups Cheese; shredded
1/2 cup Enchilada sauce; mild
8 Flour tortillas
1 teaspoon Salt

Original recipe makes 8 Servings



Cover chicken with water, add salt and boil until cooked. Shred once cooled. Save broth.

Prepare cream of mushroom using broth (follow directions on can, DO NOT use all broth). Add salsa and chicken and stir. Remove from heat and add 1 cup of cheese. Taste for salt, but you probably won't need any.

Fill the tortillas with about 2 spoons of the chicken mixture and roll. Place in pan. Top with enchilada sauce and remaining cheese. Bake at 350 until cheese is melted.

Super good! Since most of the reviews said it was too soupy, I used 3/4 cup of milk instead of the chicken water. Made it with black bean and corn salsa, added onion and peppers.

Love love love! Flavorful and great to reheat. This a big request. I've probably made it about 10 times and have not changed a thing.
