Layers of corn tortillas, chicken, enchilada sauce and cheese are melted into one casserole. Though it's not as quick as pouring from a can, the dish still comes together easily and can be prepared in advance so that you can simply pop it in the oven to heat it through when you are ready to eat.
These enchiladas come together quickly because the tortillas, chicken and sauce can be prepared in advance. Using homemade ingredients produces the yummiest result but if you are short on time or energy you can always substitute store-bought versions.
Enchiladas are a great way to get your family to eat seafood. Shrimp, scallops, crab and cod are all good options for the filling because they are firm and have mild flavors.
This basic enchilada casserole is a dream for a busy evening. It comes together quickly and you can use your imagination, adding whatever you would like to the layers.
