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.
In our quest to re-create the burrito mojado from Café Río, one of our favorite Mexican restaurants, we made these chicken burritos. Burrito mojado is Spanish for "wet burrito" which translates into a burrito drenched in enchilada sauce and melted cheese.
