Green Chili Chicken Enchiladas with Del Monte Tomatoes Green Chilies Chicken Enchiladas

This Green Chili Chicken Enchiladas recipe was a hit! Served with cilantro lime rice for a easy dinner. You can make your own enchilada sauce or use canned for convenience. I was able to make this recipe after getting off work one evening – so super simple! I was also able to use a couple of ingredients – cream of mushroom and enchilada sauce – we had in our pantry as part of our 2013 Pantry Challenge.

This recipe was part of the Del Monte Southwestern Tomato Kick-off Sweepstakes using the new Del Monte Petite Cut Diced Tomatoes with Green Chilies. I use diced tomatoes in a ton of recipe and I love the convenience of these new Petite Cut Diced Tomatoes which pack huge flavor. Check out more recipe ideas on the Del Monte Pinterest board.

    The amount and cooking method of the chicken was left out. It looks yummy though. Very similar to what I make frequently but I will tweak it with your suggestions. Thank you!
