An Enchilada Dish That Will Blow Your Mind

Cha Cha Enchiladas! Similar to enchilada lasagna
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can cream of celery soup
1 1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup canned green chilis (drained)
Sriracha (optional)
Mexican style shredded cheese
Small corn tortillas (white or yellow)
Tortilla chips

(purchase and dice up the amount you desire)
Red peppers
Green peppers
1 can black beans (drained and rinsed)

I purchased the Jack Daniel's shredded chicken for this recipe. It is precooked and marinaded so there wasn't much work needed.

Begin by preheating your over to 420 degrees.

some of the dry ingredients

Chop up the ingredients you wish to put into this dish.

In a bowl, combine the cream of chicken, cream of celery, sour cream and green chilis. We also mixed a bit of Sriracha in with this to give it a little kick. I would avoid this if you don't like spicy.

This is how I store chopped goods while I prepare the rest

Start by applying a THIN layer of the cream mixture to the bottom of your pan.

*I used a 13 x 9

Now place your first layer of tortillas. I found it easiest to cut the small tortillas in half using a pizza cutter, that way I could line the flat edges with the sides of the pan.

Next layer on some cheese, and start adding ingredients. Apply another layer of tortillas, followed by a layer of the cream mixture. We also added a thin layer of Sriracha in the middle.

I did an entire row/layer of diced up jalapenos. They actually didn't turn out very spicey, so I would suggest trying this as well for a crisp flavor.


In the middle layer I added the entire package of Jack Daniel's shredded chicken. I topped the chicken with a layer of crunched up bits of tortilla chips. This adds great texture to the dish.

Next was cheese, followed by tortillas, cream mixture and then more of the veggies and beans. Continue to create your own style of layers until you reach the top. You do not want a row of tortillas on the top but instead a BUNCH of cheese.

Layering on the cheese!

Ready for the oven

Place it in the oven, middle rack. Depending on the size of your dish and ingredients the time will vary. For this specific dish I left mine in for about 45 minutes and then let it sit for about 10 minutes as well.

All done

*It is okay if you don't use all of the cream mixture. I found that using the entire bowl's worth can create a "goopy" turnout.
