Quick Enchiladas Verdes

This is truly a “family recipe” that we love. Ashley is usually the cook on this one, and somehow she makes them better every time. It’s a very simple and quick dish – perfect for  on-the-go families like ours, or if you’re just looking for something quick and painless but still delicious after a long day. 


  • 10 8″ Flour Tortillas
  • 1 Container Shredded Rotisserie Chicken OR 1 Whole Pre-Cooked Rotisserie Chicken (we usually get ours from Kroger)
  • 2 Poblano Peppers (if you like a little spice) OR 2 Green Bell Peppers (if you don’t like spice)
  • 1 Bag Shredded Mexican Cheese
  • 2 Jars Taco Bell Verde Sauce
  • 2 Bags Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice (whichever you prefer, we usually use the Spanish Rice) 

Cooking Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees 
  2. If you have the whole Rotisserie chicken, pull the meat apart into 1″ (or smaller) pieces and place in a bowl
  3. Thinly slice your peppers lengthwise to your liking
  4. Spray glass cooking dish with non-stick spray or oil
  5. Fill lay out tortillas and fill with chicken, peppers, and cheese
  6. Roll up the tortillas (no real skill needed here, just roll them up tight) and place in the baking dish
  7. Pour the two jars of verde sauce evenly over all the enchiladas 😋
  8. Place, uncovered in oven and cook for 15-20 minutes (you’ll know it’s ready when the tortillas are beginning to get golden-brown and the peppers inside should be soft)
  9. While the enchiladas are going you can have a glass of wine 🍷 and cook the Ready Rice in the microwave per package instructions 
  10. When everything’s done, serve and enjoy! 

Another thing I like about this dish – you can customize it in a million different ways. Melt some more cheese on top, add different types of cheese inside, garnish with cilantro or salsa. Ashley and I love to do this one just a little different each time.
