I’m so excited to post this recipe because it’s one of my favorite methods~ the mash-up! That glorious union of two fantastic foods, brought together with love to make one huge and super duper fantastic food creation all its own!
I present to you ‘Taquito Enchiladas’! Yep..not only does this show-stopper of a dish provide an amazing wow factor, it also makes Enchiladas almost effortless..and by effortless, I mean…it can’t get any easier! Each Taquito is already stuffed with chicken and/or beef, and conveniently rolled just waiting for you to layer them!
Once this dish is baked to perfection, each crispy, sauce covered, chicken filled Taquito bursts with gooey cheese and crunchy edges that will put even your favorite Enchilada recipe to shame! Trust me! Oh~ and as if that weren’t enough, this recipe will feed a small army of starving men..in under an hour…with no mess left behind. You. Are. Welcome! 🙂
This is seriously my new favorite kitchen hack..aside from the ice cream custard thing..that’s pretty epic..lol!
What you’ll need:
I used an 8x11x3″ deep baking pan
1 large box (approx. 30-40) frozen Taquitos, no need to defrost! I used Chicken, but beef will work too! OR you can mix them up..YUM!
15 oz. can of cream of chicken soup (I only used approx. 1/2 of that large can in the pic. Too much soup, and it won’t get creamy enough!)
2 cups shredded cheddar..divided
1 cup chopped green chile
1 large egg
Sour cream and cilantro for garnish..optional
in a large bowl mix together the soup, 1 cup of the cheese, the egg, green chile and any spices you prefer…
Layer a single layer of the taquitos on the bottom of the pan (they don’t need to be thawed..how amazing is that??! 🙂
Evenly layer some of the soup mix onto the taquitos..
Continue to layer all the way to the top…
Then top the whole shebang with the other cup of cheese…
Bake it at 350 for a good 40-50 minutes, or until it’s golden and bubbly all the way through!
Let it cool just a bit…even though it’s SO tempting!
NOW you can serve it up…listen for all the ooh’s and ahh’s as this hits the table!
Grab a pretty plate and a dollop of Sour Cream…
Annnd dig in! ~Enjoy! 🙂
