Lonestar Chicken Enchiladas

March 9, 2014

I get all my best recipes from Famous Julie.

You all thought the title of my blog was a cutesy little spin off of a popular phrase…

But it’s actually true. My mom really did teach me how to play with my food. Mr. T thanks his lucky stars every day for that.

Famous Julie dug this recipe out of a Taste of Home magazine a while back.

Boy, does she know how to pick ’em.

Lonestar Chicken Enchiladas
These enchiladas are SO GOOD. They are creamy, and cheesy and so good piled with fresh tomatoes and cilantro!

  1. 3 cups shredded chicken

These bad boys taste much more fresh than your average white chicken enchiladas. 



I like to top mine with cilantro, olives and grape tomatoes. 

Top yours with whatever your little heart desires.

You really can’t go wrong.

    I made these for my family tonight. They loved them. Only thing I did different was I put the salsa, Rotel and green chilies in the blender and blended it up. My kids and husband dont like chunks of tomatoes. It was awesome still.

    I made these last night. FABULOUS! I loved the blend of flavors. So fresh, so authentic, so yummy! Unfortunately, I’ve never had good luck with corn tortillas. I can never get them to roll up without crumbling into a thousand pieces. So, this turned into more of a casserole than actual enchiladas. However, I think this has officially become a Meakin family staple.

    I made these tonight. I used soft flour shells at the request of my husband. They were heaven. My kids seemed unsure of them at first but Now they are stuffing themselves to. THANK YOU!

    SOO glad you loved them! And even more glad your kids loved them! I always have to resort to the chicken nuggets when Baby Girl refuses to eat the dinner I made. Mom guilt is SO real! Haha 🙂
