We love Mexican inspired dishes and these Green Chili Lime Chicken Enchiladas are one of our favorite meals with it’s mild yet flavorful blend of spices and creamy sauce. This one is a favorite for the kids and adults alike since it is cheesy, creamy and simple to assemble. I prefer to make the chicken mixture ahead in bulk and assemble my enchiladas right before meal time if I am making this into a freezer meal, but others may prefer the easy freezer to oven method of making the enchiladas ahead where you can simply pop directly from your freezer right into your oven.

These Green Chili Lime Chicken Enchiladas are one of our favorite easy meals to throw together. If you prefer a no fuss easy weeknight meal, mix together this chicken filling and assemble enchiladas in a disposable aluminum pan and freeze for up to 4 months. Label appropriately and pop straight from freezer to oven to cook at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to an hour or until cooked through and cheese melted. So simple, so tasty and sophisticated enough to serve to guests at your next dinner party.
