Ranch Enchiladas

Salsa and ranch dressing flavored chicken enchiladas smothered in cheese and topped with Rotel!

Ranch enchiladas, as in slightly creamy, Ranch dressing and chunky salsa flavored enchiladas, are going to be in your family’s rotation WITHOUT a doubt. I’m not saying that to sound cocky… but these are the shiiiiiiiiiiiiz.

Now I understand the word “creamy” incites various reactions, so let’s start off by calling these enchiladas chunky and cheesy! Everyone (or at least anyone I want to be friends with) likes the taste of ranch dressing, so image adding in those delicious seasonings into a shredded chicken and cheese enchilada topped with lots of freshness thanks to Rotel (a Texas staple!), crumbled cotija cheese and fresh cilantro.

These are knockouts, really. Since they do have a little creaminess to them thanks to the greek yogurt, I love pairing them with a slightly spicier salsa packed with lots of chunky tomatoes, onions and peppers like Pace.

I hope you love every bite of these Ranch Enchiladas!
