Salsa Verde Chicken Enchiladas

As I’m meal planning each day I try and come up with a meal that will serve for good leftovers for lunch the next day. It can be challenging at times but these salsa verde chicken enchiladas are one of our family favorites. You can make them in a single serving or make a dozen and freeze. Since my husband and I are both teachers, we save money by bringing our lunch to school. I have found the perfect disposable heat and eat containers that I just LOVE! First, the yummy and easy salsa verde chicken enchiladas.


You will need:


pepper jack cheese

salsa verde

cooked chicken  (I cook mine in the crock pot but you can do a rotisserie chicken for this and it’s great!)


In a bowl mix some shredded cheese, chicken, and some of the salsa. Add some of the salsa verde to the bottom of a baking dish and preheat the oven to 350. Spread some of the mixture in a tortilla and roll it up. Continue doing this to your tortillas. Top tortillas with remaining salsa and cheese. Heat uncovered for 25-30 minutes.

Salsa Verde Chicken Enchiladas, easy to make and is so tasty with a little spice

Now to my favorite part, these Reynolds™ Disposable Heat & Eat. I found these at Walmart in the area that has the foil/baggies section of the store. I love them because they are a great way to heat and eat leftovers. We eat a lot of leftovers! Reynolds™ Disposable Heat & Eat containers are a great alternative to plastic and are made of plant fibers. They work great in the microwave and they are so easy to use! I love that clean up is easy, there is no mess!


Reynolds™ Disposable Heat & Eat containers are perfect for reheating my chicken verde enchiladas! They would also be great for spaghetti, baked ravioli, King Ranch chicken, or reheating pulled pork! There are so many great options.

    These look delicious! We’ve been eating LOTS of pasta casseroles since the new baby arrived and I could use a change. 🙂

    That recipe sounds so good and easy! And I saw those containers at the store the other day, but I was in such a hurry I didn’t get to stop and look at them. Next time I will!
