In this instructable I will show you how you can make simple shredded chicken enchiladas. Enchiladas are a great recipe and you can make it ahead of time. Just let it heat in the oven for half an hour before serving.

The enchilades are filled with shredded chicken. To make shredded chicken you just put some water to the boil, add some chicken stock cube and add a chicken breast filet. Just leave it on a low simmer for about 20-25 minutes and you can shred the chicken. In the mean while you can prepare a nice enchilada sauce. To make the enchilade sauce you can follow my previous instructable. It takes no more than 10 minutes to get it done. You can make it with oil or with vegetable butter.

Pre-heat your oven on 400 ℉. Now all you need to do is assemble the enchiladas with: tortilla, enchilada sauce, shredded chicken, kidney beans, bell peppers and onion. Fold the enchilada and put them in a oven-dish. I use small tortillas but you can use medium tortillas as well. Now pour all of the remaining enchilada sauce on the enchilada before you decorate the enchiladas with Mozzarella cheese.

Bake the enchilada for at least 30-35 minutes in the oven and you are ready to enjoy this delicious simple shredded chicken enchilada casserole.
