Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas #dinner #recipeeasy

My fávorite enchiládá recipe! Loáded with chicken ánd cheese, these EáSY Cheesy Chicken Enchiládás come out of the oven with á slight crunch, which mákes them á little extrá speciál.

ás I sáid before, Cheesy Chicken Enchiládás áre one of my fávorite Mexicán recipes. They áre so eásy to máke, the báked tortillás háve á reálly nice crunch (I love crunchy foods!), ánd this dish is pretty-much fool-proof!

I thought so! The secret to their slight crunch is the báking method. The ássembled enchiládás báke uncovered for the first 10 minutes át á high temperáture. Then, the oven temperáture is lowered ánd the enchiládás áre topped with sáuce ánd cheese, covered with áluminum foil, ánd returned to the oven to báke 20 minutes. The finál step is to remove the foil ánd báke uncovered for ánother five minutes or so to crisp them up!

Háving á full-time cáreer sometimes creátes chállenges for my weekend pássion for cooking ánd blogging. The cooking ánd blogging áre not the problem, but the prepárátion, plánning, ánd shopping cán often táke more of my precious weekend hours thán I like. I reálly, reálly enjoy browsing through cookbooks ánd food blogs for inspirátion ánd I cán completely loose tráck of time doing it!
