Expert Tips

  • For even more corn flavor, make these Chicken and Corn Enchiladas using corn tortillas instead. Microwave the tortillas in a damp paper towel for about 15 seconds to make them easier to roll.
  • Using rotisserie chicken is a great time saver, but you can use any shredded cooked chicken or turkey for this recipe.
  • Not a fan of cilantro? Use green onions to garnish your Chicken and Corn Enchiladas instead.
  • Like it hot? Top your Chicken and Corn Enchiladas with chopped fresh jalapeños or serve with your favorite hot sauce.
