This 5 Minute Cheesey Chicken Enchilada Grande seems a quick meal to make for my children however because of the cheese ingredient, they will not appreciate this very much. My children never liked cheese a lot while growing up.

Wow, this is a quick recipe! I always order chicken enchiladas at Mexican restaurants, so I will be trying this recipe. I think I'll have it as an option when we have chicken tacos. I will put olives and sour cream and guacamole on mine! I'll probably have the chicken cooking in my slow cooker with enchilada sauce all day while we're at work.

So simple and looks delicious! Would this work with corn tortillas instead of flour tortillas for the gluten sensitive?

Corn tortillas would work. However, they don't come in large sizes, that I know of so you would make more smaller ones. You can find gluten free flour tortillas, which are a big size. They don't roll as easy so you might want to warm those up before folding up. You might find those in the gluten free section, either on the shelf or in the freezer.

I love the 5 minutes prep time! It's perfect for nights when you have to rush the kids off to an activity. I added some canned corn and chopped zuchinni to the chicken to increase the nutritional value a bit.

For those of us with Diabetes, it is important for us to see a carb count listed in the nutritional values. Please consider this. Thanks.
