Meal Starter: Verde Chicken Enchiladas #KraftRecipeMakers

As I’ve now mentioned (several times), I’m pregnant and lazy exhausted. My appetite has mostly returned but there are many days, after I’m done working, that I’m just too tired to make a complicated meal. As much as I want to, I just haven’t been for much cooking. I browse my “things I want to eat/drink” board on Pinterest, get overwhelmed and end up getting take-out. For that reason, I was so excited to try out this new Kraft Recipe Makers meal kit. Even if you aren’t pregnant, sometimes you just need help and want a quick and easy meal.
There are quite a few kits to choose from but we picked Verde Chicken Enchiladas. Kraft Recipes Makers are meal starters that include a recipe and you provide the fresh ingredients. Besides the meal kit, all my husband had to run to the store to get was tortillas, shredded cheese, and a pound of chicken.

Here are all my ingredients, ready to go.


I boiled the chicken in chicken broth. Once done, I used my favorite chicken shredding technique & showed you how it’s done. My first instavideo is pretty terrible, but you get the idea. Put the cooked chicken into the bowl and using the paddle attachment, mix on low for about 30 seconds.


Voila. Perfectly shredded chicken. Soooo much easier than using two forks (remember that lazy/exhaustion thing I have going on – I use this trick even when that isn’t the case). Pour in the provided creamy ranchero sauce that came in your kit and mix it up. 
Lightly spray the pan with non-stick spray then pour one pack of the tomatillo finishing sauce onto the bottom of the pan. Next, you just scoop about 1/2 cup of the chicken mixture into the center of each tortilla, roll up, place seam side down, and repeat until you’re out of chicken. Since I used the larger 12″ flour tortillas (the box calls for 12 6″ corn tortillas), it took six for me. Once done, pour the other packet of verde sauce on top, sprinkle on some cheese and bake at 350 for 15 minutes or until thoroughly warmed. 

That’s it! Seriously, so easy. I served with a side of Spanish rice and a little sour cream.

Not only do they taste good, they really couldn’t be much easier. My husband loved them and I loved how easy they were to make. I’m looking forward to trying some other flavors. 
1 package Kraft Recipe Makers Verde Chicken Enchiladas
1-1 1/2 (about 4 cups) cooked and shredded chicken
Six 12″ flour tortillas
Mexican blend shredded cheese
Lightly spray a 9×13 pan with a non-stick spray and set aside.
Cook the chicken (I boiled in chicken stock) then shred. Pour in the creamy ranchero sauce provided in the meal kit and stir until well combined.
Open one packet of the tomatillo finishing sauce and spread it evenly over the bottom of the 9×13 pan.
Take a tortilla and scoop in about a 1/2 cup of the chicken mixture. Roll it up and place it seam side down into the pan. Repeat until you’re out of chicken. 
Pour the second packet of tomatillo finishing sauce over the top of the tortillas then sprinkle with cheese.
Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the cheese is melted and they’re heated through.

      Hi JoAnn,
      I often see them at Target or Walmart – are you able to shop at either of those stores?
