Chicken Enchiladas Two Ways

Chicken Enchiladas 2 Ways by Posed Perfection
Hi there, Friends! How is your weekend going so far? We've been watching my son play in a baseball tournament since Thursday night. Hence, the scarcity of posts ;-) Baseball season is finally over. Thank goodness! Anyway, I couldn't let the weekend go by without sharing one of my all time favorite recipes... Chicken Enchiladas- 2 Ways. I just made some this week and I'm already anticipating when I can pull out the other pan of them from the freezer for a quick and easy meal.

Here's what you need: cooked, shredded chicken, cream of chicken soup, sour cream, green chiles, onion, milk, tortillas and shredded cheese (colby jack or cheddar).
In medium bowl, combine cream of chicken soup, soup can full of milk, and a can of green chiles. (If you want to spice things up a bit, feel free to add some salsa to this step.)
In another bowl, stir together shredded chicken, chopped onions, 3/4 cup shredded cheese and sour cream. Then, pour in 1/2 of the soup mixture and combine thoroughly.
Place about 1/2 cup of the filling down the center of a flour tortilla and roll up. The amount of filling may depend on the size tortilla you use. Mine were the large burrito size.
Place the rolled up enchiladas seam-side down in a pan that's been sprayed with cooking oil. Pour remaining soup mixture over the top of the enchiladas and sprinkle remaining cheese all over. Cover with foil and bake in 350 degree oven for 25 minutes. Remove foil and bake for 5-10 minutes longer or until cheese is melted and the sides are somewhat bubbly.

Wondering where the "2-way"comes in? When I am feeling a bit lazy, or wanting to stretch the meal even farther, I will turn this into a casserole instead of individual enchiladas. To do this, tear tortillas into quarters and layer in a prepared pan. Start with the tortillas, then filling mixture topped with cheese.
Pour some sauce and repeat the layers, ending with a layer of tortillas with sauce on top. Bake as directed.

From this recipe, I will typically make a 13x9 pan of enchiladas, then make an 8x8 pan of the casserole to put in the freezer for a fast weeknight meal. Simply thaw in the refrigerator and then bake. Ever have one of those times where you have the opportunity to bless someone with a meal? This is a great dish to take to that someone. What's your go-to meal to take to friends in need?
