Family gatherings are not just for visiting, but it’s also for filling your bellies with lots of yummy foods. Growing up, we had family gatherings constantly at my Grandmother Sue Sue’s house. Her Creamy Chicken and Spinach Enchiladas were always on the menu, especially at Thanksgiving. We would usually do the traditional Turkey, but we would also have dishes such as this to change it up a bit.

I love serving these Chicken and Spinach Enchiladas during holidays not only to keep our family tradition alive, but to also keep Grandmother Sue Sue’s spirit with us even though she is gone. Food has a special way of bringing people together and it is especially true for this recipe. My Sue Sue along with my mother Tina who we call Tina has been making this recipe for years and always brings a twinkle to my eye when I smell them cooking in the oven.
To make these delicious Chicken and Spinach Enchiladas, I bought all of my fresh and organic ingredients from Walmart. I love shopping at Walmart because they have a variety of organic and fresh ingredients at great price. Not only do we like shopping for healthy ingredients, but we also like to stick to a budget. Walmart allows us to do just that. My favorite way to shop for this specific recipe and our weekly groceries, is curled up on the couch with my laptop. I will scroll through pick out exactly what I need and order online to pick-up the next day. Walmart really does make it super easy and convenient for you to get everything you need.
Tips For Making the Perfect Chicken and Spinach Enchiladas
- The longer and slower the chicken breast cook at a low temperature the end result will be more of a shredded chicken. This makes for easier enchilada building.
- Don’t add too much of the chicken mixture to the tortilla. Makes rolling harder.
- These are great to make ahead of time. You can freeze then let set at room temperature before popping into the oven.
How can you freeze these Chicken and Spinach Enchiladas?
There isn’t just one right way to freeze these enchiladas. Always do what works for you. I love freezing in a disposable aluminium pan because it makes the whole process easier. Below are all the different ways to store your chicken and spinach enchiladas in the freezer.
- DISPOSABLE ALUMINUM PANS
- GLASS, CERAMIC OR METAL BAKING PANS
- A GLASS OR CERAMIC BAKING PAN LINED WITH ALUMINUM FOIL
- WRAPPED TIGHTLY IN ALUMINUM FOIL
Where I come from, we cook the Southern Way, which means everything we make is pretty darn tasty. These Chicken and Spinach Enchiladas are not only great during the holiday season, but they are awesome to make and freeze for quick meals during the month. In addition, if you sign up for a meal train for someone who has lost a loved one or someone who is expecting and baby, be sure take this meal. It is one that is sure to soothe the soul. So, in conclusion, the next time you are needing a dish to take to a party, family gathering or to give as a gift, be sure to give this recipe a try. I know it will be a big hit!
