10 enchiladas


  • 1 (10 ounce) can Old El Paso® Red Enchilada Sauce

  • 2 ½ cups shredded deli rotisserie chicken

  • 1 ½ cups shredded Cheddar cheese

  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, cut into 1/2-inch cubes

  • 1 (1 ounce) package fajita seasoning mix*

  • 10 Old El Paso® flour tortillas for soft tacos & fajitas (6 inch)


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Spray a 13x9-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Spread 1/4 cup of enchilada sauce in the bottom of the baking dish.

  2. Mix chicken, 1 cup of Cheddar cheese, cream cheese, and seasoning mix in a medium bowl; spoon slightly less than 1/2 cup of filling onto each tortilla. Roll up each tortilla tightly; place seam-side down in the prepared baking dish. Drizzle with remaining enchilada sauce. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese on top; cover with foil.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes; uncover and bake 15 minutes longer or until bubbly and lightly browned.


If using taco seasoning mix, use just 2 tablespoons, and save the rest for another use.

You can substitute 2 tablespoons Old El Paso Taco Seasoning Mix for a 1-ounce package Old El Paso Fajita Seasoning Mix.

Pop the opened cream cheese in the freezer for about 10 minutes to make it colder so it's easier to cut into small cubes.
