These Easy Chili Verde Enchiladas are one of the easiest dinners ever. Especially if you are trying to get dinner on the table in 30 minutes and it has been a busy day.
These are so comforting and tasty that they are like a big hug. I also love that there really are only just a few ingredients needed for this weeknight meal idea.
This is one of those go-to recipes when I have about 30 minutes to get dinner on the table. I love making these because they remind me of our big family dinners with my grandmother when I was growing up.
She was a fabulous cook and made everything from her tortillas to her tamales from scratch! While I love cooking from scratch sometimes, I also love to take shortcuts when possible. I am happy to tell you that this recipe is made simpler with a jar of salsa, one of the best cooking shortcuts ever.
As Mother's Day comes around, I cannot help but think of her and how she loved celebrating with us. My family would have a big celebration with music, games and lots of great Mexican food! It was all about making the most of your time with family!
These days, we love simple dinners with Mexican flavors like these Easy Chili Verde Enchiladas!
This simple Chili Verde recipe is made using a bottled green salsa. Know one will know you took a simple shortcut with a salsa verde. They are that good! I hope that your family loves this easy Mexican recipe as much as we do!
I like to add a few chopped tomatoes for color when serving to change it up.
These are so easy, it makes for the perfect weeknight meal.

My mouth is watering, these look SO yummy! I make my own salsa verde, so I'm sure they will be wonderful when I try them.
Yes, please! I love enchiladas so much I had to take a break from making them because I could seriously eat the whole pan. Those look delicious 🙂
These look super yummy! Normally I'm not a big enchiladas person but these don't look overly saucy so I think I'd love these. Thanks for sharing at Merry Monday this week!
Thanks for your sweet comment Marie. They are not heavily sauced at all and are actually on the lighter side, which I love.
