Dinner Tonight: Enchilada Suizas

I have mentioned my love of Enchilada Suizas before…it’s a Chicken Enchilada with Swiss cheese inside.  
In an enchilada.  
I used to think enchiladas were too much of a hassle for a weeknight, but I was wrong.  They’re actually the perfect weeknight supper and an easy recipe to whip up for other people (if you need to take someone dinner or have a pot luck).  Use my Perfect Chicken method and your enchiladas will be together in no time.
This recipe makes about 8 enchiladas.
Shopping List
1 pound of cooked and shredded chicken (click here to see how I get my shredded chicken)
1 can of cream of mushroom soup
1 (4 oz) can chopped green chiles
salt and pepper
1 cup Swiss cheese, shredded (save a little extra for garnish)
1/2 cup Pepper Jack cheese, shredded (or Montery Jack)
8 tortillas (either flour or whole wheat)
1 (15 oz) can of tomatillo or green chile enchilada sauce
Chopped green onions to garnish
a little extra Swiss to garnish
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Lightly spray an 8×8 baking dish with cooking spray.  Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the shredded chicken with the cream of mushroom soup, green chiles, a liberal pinch of salt and pepper, and both cheeses.
Once combined, take each tortilla and spread a little bit down the center.  Roll and place in the prepared baking dish.  Once all 8 enchiladas are tucked inside the baking dish, pour your enchilada sauce down on top of them.  
Bake uncovered about 20 minutes or until the edges of the tortillas are lightly brown and and everything is bubbling.  Remove from oven and serve.  Garnish with some chopped green onion and a little extra Swiss.
My family ate these up!  This is such a good weeknight meal for hungry families.

    Not to be a Debbie downer but real enchiladas suizas are dubbed "Swiss-style" because they have more dairy in them than a typical enchilada due to a cream based sauce. They do not actually have Swiss cheese in them.

      Where I live (Texas!!), Suizas are always served with Swiss :).

    Could you substitute the cream of mushroom for cream of chicken? Sounds delicious!

    You can totally use cream of chicken! Just mix and match it and make it your own :).
