We've tried a lot of the myriad of online recipes for shredded chicken, but most were either too complex or didn't have the depth of flavor. This recipe combines the simplicity of using many store bought ingredients, with the depth of flavor of homemade enchiladas. 


  • Shredded Chicken (check out our recipe here! It can be made alongside this one.)
  • Red enchilada sauce (we use Old El Paso)
  • Diced Green chiles (fresh is best, but cans from the store works too!)
  • Shredded Mexican cheese
  • Instant Gourmet's Grande Southwest
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Corn tortillas

Cooking Time: 50 minutes – a quick and easy solution for busy days when you want a delicious homemade dinner without the fuss.

Flavor Explosion: 

What sets these enchiladas apart is Instant Gourmet's Grande Southwest. With a blend anchored in ancho chiles, the seasoning adds a delightful smokiness that elevates the flavor profile of the shredded chicken. Combined with the melted cheese, each enchilada promises a burst of Southwestern goodness in every bite.

Why We Love This Recipe:

Aside from its irresistible taste, this Southwestern Shredded Chicken Enchiladas recipe is a lifesaver for busy households. With the ability to serve 8, it's perfect for family dinners or preparing meals in advance.
