Easy to make, not too spicy enchiladas

Recipe Ingredients for Chicken Enchiladas

2 1/2 cups shredded chicken
3 tbsp lime juice
1 1/2 cups salsa
1/2 small red onion, minced
4 flour tortillas
4 slices (4 ounces) provolone cheese

Recipe Directions for Chicken Enchiladas

  1. Heat oven to 450F. Put the chicken in a small bowl and toss with 2 tablespoons of the lime juice, 1/2 cup of the salsa, the minced onion, and salt and pepper to taste.

  2. Place a quarter of the chicken mixture on the lower third of one of the tortillas and roll it into a cylinder from the bottom up, tucking in the sides as you go, so that no chicken escapes from the ends. Place the filled tortilla in a square 8-by-8-inch baking dish with the seam facing down. Repeat with the remaining chicken and tortillas.

  3. Combine the remaining 1 cup salsa with 1 tablespoon water, and the remaining lime juice. Arrange the slices of cheese over the tortillas and pour the salsa mixture over the top. Bake until the cheese is browned and melted, 15 to 20 minutes. Sprinkle with cilantro and serve.
