How to Make Buffalo Chicken Enchiladas Recipe
If you love the tangy spiciness of buffalo chicken and the delicious flavor of enchiladas, then this is definitely one recipe that you’ll want to make soon – and often! Even though these enchiladas come together for a quick 30-minute meal, they also make a great make-ahead recipe!
As the oven preheats, spray your baking dish with nonstick cooking spray or lightly coat with olive oil. Then, pour a little bit of the enchilada sauce into the bottom of the baking dish and set aside.
To make the enchiladas, I start with my cooked chicken. For this, I love to use chicken that I’ve cooked ahead for the week as part of my meal prep. I love to use my baked chicken or even my instant pot chicken, give it a quick shred and then use in dishes just like this one throughout the week! If you prefer, you can easily use rotisserie chicken as well.
To the shredded chicken, I add Stone House Seasoning, some enchilada sauce, as well as buffalo sauce, and diced tomatoes with chilis. I have homemade versions of the enchilada sauce and buffalo sauce that I prefer to use, but you can easily substitute with store bought if you prefer. Then I give all of the chicken a quick stir to mix it all together.
Then, I spoon some of the chicken mixture into a tortilla and top with a little bit of the cheese. I fold the tortilla over the chicken and cheese and then place the enchilada seam side down onto the enchilada sauce in the baking dish. I repeat until all of the chicken mixture has been used, top the enchiladas with the remaining enchilada sauce and buffalo sauce and then top with the remainder of the cheese. I then bake until the buffalo chicken enchiladas are baked throughout and the cheese has melted, about 20 minutes.
To serve, I top with sliced green onions and blue cheese crumbles, if using.
