Kid Friendly Enchilada

Kid Friendly Enchilada Recipes by Lesley Dietschy

I had no idea when I became a mother that one of my greatest challenges would be cooking for my children. I have always heard how picky kids are about what they eat but I didn’t realize what “picky” really meant until my son reached 4-years-old and simply refused to eat anything that wasn’t chicken fingers or fruit snacks!

I frequently search for recipes and make them my own by changing the ingredients to include what I know my kids will eat.
Both of my kids love Mexican food and therefore I make the following two recipes quite often.

Easy Creamy Chicken Enchiladas


2 cans cream of chicken soup, undiluted
1 package of sour cream mix
1 can of cubed cooked chicken
4 oz. can of diced green chilies
8 corn tortillas
1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese


1. In a medium saucepan, mix all ingredients together and cook over medium heat for 15 minutes. Stir constantly.

2. Spoon some of the mixture into each tortilla and roll the tortillas.

3. In a 13-in.x 9-in.x 2-in. casserole dish, place the tortillas in a row.

4. Pour the remaining mixture over the tortillas.

5. Top with shredded cheese.

6. Bake uncovered at 350F for 20-25 minutes and the cheese on top is melted.

Serves 4.

Enchilada Pie


1 lb. hamburger
8-10 corn tortillas
10 oz. can enchilada sauce
8 oz. can tomato sauce
4 oz. can chopped green chilies
8 oz. shredded cheddar cheese
¼ cup water


1. Cover bottom of 12x12 (or similar size) baking dish with torn tortillas.

2. Brown hamburger and drain.

3. Mix hamburger with enchilada sauce, tomato sauce, chilies, and water.

4. Pour half of the meat mixture in dish on top of the torn tortillas and top with cheese.

5. Repeat layer by adding torn tortillas, meat mixture and top with cheese.

6. Bake uncovered at 350F for 20-30 minutes.

Serves 4.

Both of these enchilada recipes taste great with a green salad and my recipe for crunchies, which my family loves.

To make crunchies you will need:

6-10 corn tortillas
Frank’s Hot Sauce
shredded cheddar cheese


1. Tear the tortillas into bite sized pieces or desired size and place on a cookie sheet.

2. Top each piece of tortilla with shredded cheese and drizzle with hot sauce.

3. Broil tortillas at 400F until cheese is melted and the tortillas are crispy.

Please note: Carefully watch the crispies while they are baking because they cook very fast and will burn. Due to the variations in ovens, you may need to adjust the broil temperature on your oven to cook the crispies correctly. I would suggest baking a sample batch to help you learn the best temperature to use and required baking time.

I usually do not comment, however I looked
at a ton of comments on this page "Kid Friendly Enchilada".
I do have some questions for you if you tend not to mind.
Could it be simply me or do a few of the remarks come across
like they are coming from brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are writing
on additional social sites, I'd like to follow anything new you have to post. Could you make a list of all of your public sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic but I'd figured I'd ask.
Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring
a blog article or vice-versa? My site covers a lot of the
same subjects as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other.
If you are interested feel free to send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you!

With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation?

My site has a lot of unique content I've either authored myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do you know any solutions to help stop content from being stolen? I'd certainly appreciate it.
