Tempt My Tummy Tuesday ~ Chicken Enchiladas

Blessed with Grace
I know I posted this about a year and a half ago but I was on a cooking with beer theme and had to show it again. We don't drink beer here but I do cook with it every once in a while. This is a recipe that was passed down from a co-worker at the plastic surgery clinic. This has become a very popular request dinner at our house. Our neighbor likes chicken and beer and I thought I would make this for them, sadly the night I made it they weren't home ... hehe so we had it for dinner and Mr. Grumpy Pants even had a second helping. You know it's good when Rick goes back for more and not grabbing junk food at the end of the night!
This is a simple and easy recipe to throw together and a crowd pleaser. Don't worry the beer cooks off and just leaves a nice hop taste to the chicken.
4 or 5 Chicken Breast
1 can of Beer
1 can of Cream of Mushroom
1 LARGE can of green enchilada sauce
1 can of green chillies
1 LARGE container of Sour Cream
2 Cups of Cheddar Cheese
6 or 8 Tortilla

Preheat oven to 350. On stove cook the chicken in the can of beer, until cooked threw. In a large bowl add the Cream of Mushroom, Green Enchilada Sauce, Green Chillies, Sour Cream and Cheese. I call this the "goop" mix it well and set aside while chicken cooks. When chicken done you can cut into strips or I like to shred it's easier :). Lay out a tortilla, add a large scoop of the "goop" and top with chicken. Most days I roll nicely like and tuck in the edges or if in a hurry like this night I just roll them up. The true tuck insides and roll is the best easier to serve. Depending on how much chicken you use will determine the amount of tortilla's you need to use. Once all wrapped up use the last of the goop to top and put in the oven for 35 - 40 minutes, until brown and the cheese in the goop is melted. Cool and serve.


  1. This is similar to the casserole I make. I usually cook up a huge package of chicken at the beginning of the week and use it for various dishes. It makes life easier.

  2. Yummy. Similar to the one I make as well although I don't use beer. I've heard this livens up chicken dishes. Have a wonderful day:)

  3. that is a yummy one for sure..

    Have a great day Poser..

  4. oh stinking yummy.. bet this was awesome.. right up our alley!

  5. You really need to stop using technical terms like "goop" or people won't be able to utilize your recipes!

  6. tempting, tasty, delicious and so is the recipe xxx

  7. sounds good to me... thanks for sharing.. can you buy one can of beer at a time from hte store or gas station if need be?? i dont buy it so i dont know...

  8. I like the idea of cooking the chicken in the can of beer. For some reason, that really struck me as funny. And no, I haven't been drinking. I'm just really tired.

  9. Awesome, thank you. I can't wait to try this one.

  10. Yummy!! May have to try this but change out the chicken for beef :-)

  11. Mine is similar. I just boil the chicken (so I have chicken stock for another day, too). I saute an onion and then shred the chicken and onions, soups and a can or two of green chilis. I never thought to use the green chili sauce... may have to try that.
