We’re getting our menu ready for Cinco de Mayo, and these Chicken Enchiladas with White Sauce are up first! This easy to prepare meal is always a hit with our family and we’re sure your family will love this too!
This recipe for chicken enchiladas with a creamy white sauce uses our popular Mexican pulled chicken recipe – a versatile, easy and delicious way to prepare chicken for many Mexican-inspired recipes such as this one. The Mexican pulled chicken is perfectly flavored with a spicy blend of tomato and peppers as well as other seasonings, and it’s cooked until fork-tender and then shredded.
And, as you can tell by the name of this recipe, our version of chicken enchiladas uses a white sauce that has the perfect hint of heat rather than the more traditional red enchilada sauce. But while our family prefers a creamy white sauce for this dish, you can easily substitute red sauce instead and these chicken enchiladas will still be delicious!
