  • three 9 x 13 inch baking dishes
  • Oven
  • Bowl
  • Microwave
  • measuring cups
  • measuring spoons


  • 3 12.5 ounce cans chunk chicken drained
  • 3 15.5 ounce cans Hatch Green Enchilada Sauce
  • 1 heaping cup sour cream
  • 4 ounce can diced green chilies
  • 1 10.5 ounce can cream of chicken soup
  • 10 slices cooked crumbled bacon
  • 1/2 teaspoon Lawry's Garlic Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce such as Cholula
  • 36-45 corn tortillas warmed in microwave (in batches) while filling and rolling
  • 4 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and set aside three 9 x 13 inch baking dishes.
  • In a large mixing bowl place drained chunk chicken, green enchilada sauce, sour cream, green chilies, cream of chicken soup, bacon crumbles, garlic salt, pepper and hot sauce. Mix and shred chicken until well combined. Use 1/2 cup filling for each baking dish to spread onto bottom of dish. Place about 8 tortillas at time in the microwave to warm until nice and hot, about 60 seconds in my microwave. Remove and fill tortillas with about 1/4 cup filling in the center, roll and place seam side down into baking dishes. Place each rolled enchilada very close to each other filling about 12-15 enchiladas per baking dish. Continue to warm tortillas, fill with filling and arrange in baking pans until pans are full. Use remaining filling to spread over top of each baking dish. Top each baking dish evenly with cheddar cheese and mozzarella.
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes until cheese is melted and starts to turn golden brown around edges. Remove and serve hot.
