I grew up eating many different varieties of enchiladas in Mexico. There are enchiladas verdes, enchiladas rojas, enchiladas de mole, and many more. All of those varieties are delicious, but sometimes I like to try something a little bit different.

The basic recipe for enchiladas consists of tasty corn or flour tortillas, some type of sauce, a delicious filling, and cheese. As long as you have some combination of those ingredients, it is hard to go wrong.

Today’s enchilada recipe is based off of this delicious chipotle chicken enchiladas recipe that you can find here. When I saw this recipe for the first time, I knew I had to try it. It has chipotle, chicken, and Alfredo sauce! I had never tried enchiladas with Alfredo sauce, but it sure sounded good to me.

I decided to switch it up a bit by making my own Alfredo sauce, adding some cream cheese to the chicken filling, and topping it with a fresh pico de gallo.

This chipotle chicken enchiladas recipe also includes an ingredient that any Mexican mother is very familiar with – Knorr Chicken Bouillon! I love this stuff and remember my mom using it in many recipes when I was growing up. I have continued the tradition and always have some on hand. In addition, the recipe calls for Country Crock Spread as well, which gives the tortillas a delicious flavor.
