Whoa..if you love Mexican Food, if you love easy recipes with an enormous flavor pay-off, sit down for this one! This super simple Enchilada switch-up will rock your world like never before! I know that my world will never be the same since I ditched the good old dry Tortilla for a buttery, soft and fluffy Crescent!
Where do I even begin? Honestly this recipe was born, once again, out of laziness! It was Enchilada night and I found myself with NO Tortillas in the house. Going to the store was out of the question since that would require me to actually take my slippers off and put shoes on, yeah..that wasn’t gonna happen! Good thing I had Crescents hanging around..yep, my laziness wins again!
Enchiladas, as you’ve always known them, will forever be changed once your fork sinks down into that cheesy, chicken filled, perfectly puffed Crescent, dripping in the best Green Chile Sauce ever, all covered in ooey-gooey Fiesta Blend Cheese!
What you’ll need for 4 servings (2 Enchiladas per person) double recipe accordingly for more:
1 Container (8ct.) Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
3/4 Cup Milk
2 Cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese..I used Fiesta Blend
1 Can of Chicken Breast
1 Can of Cream Of Chicken Soup
1Can of Chopped and drained Hatch Green Chiles..optional
S&P to taste
A baking/casserole dish
In a medium bowl combine the Chicken and 1 cup of the Cheese, breaking up the chicken and incorporating the cheese with a fork…set aside.
In another medium bowl mix together the Soup, Milk, Green Chile and S&P…set aside.
Lay out the Crescents and add about a tbsp. of the Chicken mixture to the wide end and roll it up…
Spread a small scoop of the Gravy mixture into the bottom of the casserole dish and place the filled and rolled Crescents in.
Pour the remaining gravy over the top of the Crescents, making sure to cover them completely…
Sprinkle the top with the remaining Cheese…
Bake it uncovered at 350 for approx. 25 minutes…
Orrr, until the top is golden and the Crescents are fully cooked through…
Serve it up nice and hot, a Margarita wouldn’t hurt either! ~Enjoy! 🙂
These were so genius!! My family was skeptical so I made regular corn tortilla enchiladas for them and 4 crescent enchiladas for myself, once they saw how delicious they looked everyone was eating my crescents lol! Thanks for always inspiring my inner foodie!?
SUPER EASY, and a hit at parties and dinners! Thanks for this one!
PS: I add jalapenos for an extra bite 🙂
I love this recipe! It makes a delicious dinner and so quick and easy to make.
looks so good, Im doing this. I LOVE this website!!
Flavor is amazing but crescent rolls never crisp up. Did you bake at all prior to adding the soup mixture and cheese?
They’re supposed to be soft and tender. 🙂
These look amazing. But my favorite part of enchiladas is the enchilada sauce. What do you think about adding some of it into the chicken and cheese mixture and also to the sauce?
“Enchilada Sauce” refers to about 8 different types of sauces used on enchiladas. From a dark Mole sauce to a light dairy-based Suizas sauce. Amy’s is very similar to a Suizas sauce (my favorite) but the chicken soup ups the ante there a bit. Yummm! I definitely will make this – maybe with a little sour cream in the sauce. Whaddya think?
My FAV enchiladas was at a Mexican place we had here in Greensboro, NC – called “Tijuana Fats” and boy do I miss it. I loved their enchiladas and it was with white sauce of some kind. YUMMY!
used the can chicken breast with Buffalo sauce really good and quick
These are sooooo yummy, and so easy to make
I added choped onion
Can’t wait to try these…love enchiladas anyway you fix them but this looks easy.
I used the 10 oz can of chicken – was too much for the 8 rolls. Helpful to mention the size of the can!
This was dinner tonight. Delicious! This recipe is absolutely a keeper. I also was unsure of sizes for some of the ingredients, so I chose a small can of chiles and a 10 oz can of chicken. This was more than enough to fill the crescent rolls (larger size), and I sprinkled the remaining chicken/cheese mixture on top of the crescent rolls, then added the gravy and cheese.
I’m not that proficient in the kitchen, but this recipe is so easy to make that I had no problems. Looking forward to leftovers tomorrow!
could you possibly make the recipe print friendle so one would not have to print 5 or 6 pages thank you
so sorry must I be blind
No worries…everyone does that..lol! 🙂
I’m with Dave, I didn’t see a printable version.
