Lone Star Chicken Enchiladas

Start with deli-roasted chicken and this family-friendly casserole will be ready in no time. For a milder version, use Monterey Jack cheese in place of pepper Jack.—Avanell Hewitt, North Richland Hills, Texas

Lone Star Chicken Enchiladas


3 cups shredded cooked chicken breast
1 can (10 ounces) diced tomatoes with mild green chilies, drained
3/4 cup salsa verde
1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies
1 can (2-1/4 ounces) sliced ripe olives, drained
1 teaspoon ground cumin
2-1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
3/4 teaspoon salt
12 corn tortillas (6 inches), warmed
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded pepper Jack cheese


In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients. In a shallow bowl, combine cream and salt.
Dip both sides of each tortilla in cream mixture; top with 1/4 cup chicken mixture. Roll up and place seam side down in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Pour remaining cream mixture over top; sprinkle with cheese. Cover and freeze for up to 6 months.
To use frozen casserole: Thaw in the refrigerator overnight. Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Cover and bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until heated through. Yield: 6 servings.
