CREAMY BUFFALO CHICKEN ENCHILADAS — Shredded chicken is mixed with both enchilada sauce, Buffalo sauce and cheese, then rolled up in flour tortillas and topped with a creamy buffalo sauce.
If you’re looking for a delicious twist on the usual enchiladas, you’ve got to try these Creamy Buffalo Chicken Enchiladas!
I admit, I was skeptical the first time I made these enchiladas. I figured they had the potential to be really good, or really weird. I’m happy to report they were really good!
Actually, better than really good–they we’re pretty gosh darn amazing!
My family thought so too. They declared these enchiladas some of the best I’ve made in years. The enchilada sauce and Buffalo sauce are surprisingly tasty together.
And of course, a creamy sauce and loads of melted Monterey Jack cheese don’t hurt either. There’s even a hint of Ranch seasoning in the sauce, for even more authentic Buffalo chicken flavor.
My family prefers flour tortillas, so that’s what I used in this recipe. But I’m sure they’d be equally delicious with corn tortillas, so use whichever you prefer.
I also think some cheddar cheese would be a nice touch. And a supermarket rotisserie chicken makes it extra quick and easy to mix up the filling for these enchiladas.
If you’re lucky enough to have leftovers, enchiladas are almost always better the second day, and these were no exception.
I like to garnish these enchiladas with a sprinkling of sliced green onions. But sour cream and extra Buffalo sauce are nice to have on hand too–for the folks who like their food extra spicy.
If you’re on the fence about whether to make these Creamy Buffalo Chicken Enchiladas, trust me, just go for it! They’re surprisingly good, and a new family favorite at my house.
