FAQ’s for Creamy Ranch Chicken Enchiladas
Can I use flour tortillas in place of corn?
Yes you can but the taste will be slightly different. If you are using flour tortillas, you will need more meat because they are bigger. Sometimes flour tortillas can get a bit soggy if you bake them too long so keep that in mind.
Why did my corn tortillas split in the oven?
Sometimes corn tortillas can split when they aren’t super fresh. My trick is warming the tortillas for 30 seconds in the microwave before you place your ingredients inside.
Are these gluten free?
Most corn tortillas are gluten free. Check the back label of your tortillas before buying them to make sure they are.
Can I double the recipe?
Yes, you can double, or triple the recipe. That is why I love how versatile these enchiladas are.
How do I store leftovers?
You can keep this in the refrigerator in an airtight container for 3-4 days, or freeze the recipe for up to 1 month. This recipe can be frozen before or after cooking.
