One pan chicken enchilada casserole made on the stove top with ground chicken, enchilada sauce, veggies, and tortillas in less than 30 minutes.
Long live super easy dinners that are on the table in less than 30 minutes. This is one of those meals that you probably have everything on hand to make. It’s super fast and full of veggies (always a pro in my world!). And you only have to dirty one pan to make it. Put this one on your list to make because it’s sure to become a staple in your house, too.
The ease and speediness of this chicken enchilada recipe is awesome but can we talk about all of the flavors for a minute. Using salsa as one of the main ingredients is always a great idea, because it’s a complex flavored ingredient that is super easy to use. I love the addition of zucchini, too. It’s a simple vegetable that you all know I love, but it adds great texture and color to this dish. Then there’s the enchilada sauce – the real star of the show. Make sure you get a brand that you love because again, it’s adding a lot of flavor to the overall dish (you can also make homemade – here’s my Easy Homemade Red Enchilada Sauce recipe). A few simple ingredients never tasted so good.
This is also a great one because it’s easy to make gluten free. Just sub in and out what you like or have on hand. Serve this with a side of chips and The Best Blender Salsa Ever plus some seasonal fruit and you have yourself one simple meal the whole family will love – in less than 30 minutes. We are winning at life with this recipe.
