This chicken enchilada recipe has been in my family for as long as I can remember! My aunt got the recipe from her friend {Alison} years ago and ever since then, it’s been one of our favorite meals πŸ™‚ With only six ingredients, this meal can be whipped up in no time – especially if you keep cooked chicken in your freezer. Also, you can make this ahead of time and pop it in your freezer. Then, when you’re in a hurry and need a quick meal, just pull out the pan and stick it in the oven!

* If you want to make this ahead as a freezer meal, I would recommend you assemble your tortillas, place them in the pan, smother them with sauce and cheese, and cover with foil. Then, when you need to pull them out of the freezer for a meal – uncover the pans and bake until the cheese is melted (around an hour or so).

* If you like spicy food, try adding some diced jalapenos to the mixture!
