Chicken Enchilada Casserole

Skinny Chicken Enchilada Casserole

Chicken Enchilada Casserole


  • 1.5 lbs chicken - cooked and chopped or shredded
  • 1 can enchilada sauce
  • 1/2 can corn
  • 1/2 can black beans - rinsed
  • 1/2 cup chopped onions
  • 4 Lo-Carb Tortillas
  • 1.5 cups shredded cheese


  1. Pour a thin layer of enchilada sauce in the bottom of a baking dish - top with two tortillas - and then another thin layer of enchilada sauce. Use a spoon to make sure all of each tortilla is coated with sauce
  2. Evenly distribute your cooked chicken on top of the tortillas.
  3. Mix together beans, corn, and onion. (Since this recipe takes a half can of beans and corn I usually double this mixture and use the entire can of each with 1 cup onion and freeze half to use in future "Mexican" dishes!)
  4. Spread the bean mixture over the chicken layer
  5. Layer 3/4 cup of cheese on top of chicken and beans
  6. Top with two more tortillas, and another layer of enchilada sauce.
  7. Top with remaining cheese and bake at 350 degreesF for 30 minutes.

    Me encantó la receta, me encanta la comida mejicana, me gustaría que pongas la receta del posole.

  3. Instead of pouring sauce over tortillas, I just dip them directly in sauce and pour remaining sauce over the top before final layer of cheese.

  4. This is a burrito casserole – enchiladas are made with CORN torillas.

    • Ah yes…but burritos also don’t have enchilada sauce…so *technically* it’s a hybrid casserole… ;) And plus also, who cares what it’s called really…it’s just looks darn good!

  5. This is delicious, but I used hominy instead of corn and ranch style beans instead of black beans!!!!

  6. I tried this recipe last week and loved it! I had forgotten to get chicken at the supermarket but I thought it was still really good without it. Thanks for sharing :)

  7. I wish we could get the nutrition facts breakdown on this

  8. I agree! It looks yummy but wish for a nutrition facts breakdown too

  9. Looks tasty, and A LOT less time consuming than actual enchiladas!! I have all of these ingredients in my house already; I will have to try this soon!!
