In honor of Cinco de Mayo, I made this version of Sam’s Club Chicken Enchiladas for dinner! The recipe is adapted from a recipe called “Sam’s Club Enchiladas” from the Pioneer Woman, which I modified to use chicken instead of the traditional beef.

So there I was, standing in the produce aisle, with my grocery list in hand, hoping to get some Sam’s Club Chicken Enchiladas before the store closed for the day. I quickly got into the rhythm of looking through the signs to see when the next 30-minute time slot would be. If I could make it to the check out line before the store closed, I would get them. It seemed like a pretty easy task, so I continued with my shopping, following the signs without even looking at the actual prices.

Sam’s Club Chicken Enchiladas: These enchiladas are easily one of my favorite foods to make. They’re a cinch to make, and they’re perfect for a weeknight when you don’t have time to make a batch of tortillas, and can’t be bothered to go to the store to buy some. Since the enchilada sauce is already made, the only thing you need to do is stuff your tortillas with chicken, cheese, and some enchilada sauce.

Simple, cheesy, and zesty to the max! Our Sam’s Club Chicken Enchiladas are creamy and delicious, and they’re very simple to make. The green chiles have a strong taste, and the ready-made queso is silky smooth. These are perfect for a hectic weeknight since they put up quickly and taste fantastic!

If I’m being honest, I came up with this recipe by accident. I was rummaging through the refrigerator about 5 p.m. on a Tuesday and just had a few minutes to put something together. I noticed the cheese, chicken, queso, and salsa sitting there and decided to take advantage of it. These came out to be really stunning! It made everything so convenient for a family of six! Because the majority of my components (chicken, salsa, and queso) come from Sam’s Club, I give them the most of the credit!

Should I make enchiladas using corn or wheat tortillas?

Traditional enchiladas are prepared with corn tortillas, but for this dish, we use wheat tortillas. You may certainly use corn tortillas instead of flour tortillas if you prefer maize over flour.

Is it necessary for me to utilize a rotisserie chicken?

Certainly not! We enjoy how delicious and simple it is to use a rotisserie! Because of the time saved by utilizing a rotisserie, this is an ideal evening meal. You may use whatever kind of chicken you like. This is made easy for us by the rotisserie. Sam’s Club has never disappointed us when it comes to chicken, so we include it in a lot of our recipes.

I’m not sure what to serve with enchiladas.

Yellow rice and Simple Southwest Black Beans or Cheesy Refried Beans are almost always served with this meal in our home. Our Roasted Street Corn Salad would be a fantastic accompaniment. To finish off the dinner, we prefer to serve it with a good tossed salad.

The following are the ingredients for our Sam’s Club Chicken Enchiladas:

  • Tortillas (eight to twelve)
  • 3/4 cup queso fresco
  • Salsa (quarter cup)
  • Cilantro, 2 tbsp
  • 1 CUP CHEESE, SHREDDED
  • rotisserie chicken (around 2-3 cups)
  • 1 tblsp. green chile
  • a third of a cup of chicken broth

To make our Sam’s Club Chicken Enchiladas, follow these steps:

The first step is to dice the flesh off the rotisserie chicken. You won’t use it all, so put what’s left in an airtight container and save it for later.

Roll up a tortilla with some chicken, about 2 tablespoons shredded cheese, and some cilantro. Place the rolled tortilla in a small oiled baking dish, seam down. This will prevent the enchiladas from falling apart or unrolling on you. Continue until the baking dish is completely filled. (Depending on how full you load them, you’ll need between 8 and 10 tortillas.)

Turn the stovetop to medium heat after the baking dish is filled. Combine the Panco’s queso, the whole can of green chiles, 1/3 cup chicken stock, and the salsa in a large mixing bowl. Then combine everything and cook over low heat until it’s thin. It takes less than 5 minutes to do this task.

Remove from heat after 5 minutes and pour equally over top of tortillas. It will be very thin, which is fantastic! Allowing it to rest for a few minutes after baking thickens it up nicely.

Cover your dish with foil and bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees F. You may prevent the enchiladas from drying out by cooking them covered. If you leave the tortillas exposed, the ends will get very dry, which is not what you want!

Serve with cilantro as a garnish.

*Double the cheese sauce if desired!! If you enjoy your enchiladas oozing with cheesy deliciousness, this is the dish for you.

I’m not going to lie, Mexican cuisine is usually my favorite. (Isn’t it a food group?) Because it’s difficult to get excellent Hispanic cuisine where we live, I thought that we’d be better off cooking it ourselves. I was not mistaken with them. They’re delicious and very simple to prepare! They’re perfect for a weeknight!
