Preparation

  1. In 10-inch nonstick skillet, cook enchilada and chicken over medium heat 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until hot. Add chips; cook and stir until chips are completely coated in sauce and slightly softened, 1 to 2 minutes. Sprinkle cheese over top; cover and cook 2 to 3 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  2. Garnish with remaining ingredients, and serve immediately.

Expert Tips

  • Look for chips that are on the thick side. Thin chips will break up too much in the cooking process and may become mushy.
  • If you like it hot, finely chop a jalapeño or serrano chile, seeds removed, and serve as an added garnish.
