HERDEZ® Creamy Pasilla Enchiladas

HERDEZ® Creamy Pasilla Enchiladas


"This is a cheesy chicken enchilada with a flavorful spicy kick! It's great served with Mexican rice on the side, and it's kid approved. For variations, you can use black beans instead of corn, or add some tomatoes and diced jalapenos to the chicken mixture."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly spray a 13x9 inch baking dish with cooking spray. Spread 4 tablespoons of the cooking sauce to coat the bottom of the baking dish.
  2. Mix the chopped chicken, corn, onion, and 1/2 cup of the cooking sauce in a bowl. Spread 3 tablespoons of the chicken mixture down the center of each tortilla. Sprinkle lightly with cheese, reserving at least 1/2 cup to top all of the enchiladas. Roll up the tortillas and place seam side down in the prepared dish.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix together the cream cheese, 1/2 cup of the Herdez sauce, and half and half until blended and smooth. Top each enchilada with some of the cream sauce.
  4. Bake uncovered in preheated oven for 25 minutes. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the enchiladas and continue baking until cheese is melted, about 5 minutes. Garnish with sour cream, olives, and cilantro, if desired.

Just got these out of the oven-very, very good. I loved the idea of putting the cheddar cheese on top to bake on-made it really good. The cooking sauce was excellent-will make again.

This went over well at our house! Instead of cubing the chicken, I shredded it to make sure all the flavors mixed into it. I cut fresh white corn off a cob. I wrapped the enchiladas in a flou...

Unfortunately these were not a big hit in my house. They were ok but not out of this world. The filling mix was missing something but my entire family couldn't name what. The corn was a unique a...

Unfortunately, my husband doesn’t like spicy food so I rarely make Mexican food. This was my first attempt at making enchiladas, and it came out very well if I say so myself. I reduced the amo...

4.5! My husband says 4, I say 5. I really like these and you had tough competition. Everyone loves my own enchiladas. I loved the addition of adding corn into the mix. I also made the mistake o...
