This chicken, cheese, and green chile enchilada recipe is on my regular rotation since we love it so much. You can omit the chiles if that isn’t your thing, but it adds a nice touch, I think. They aren’t spicy, so it doesn’t add heat.

How to Freeze This Chicken Enchilada Recipe

I usually freeze these pre-baked. In fact, for my family, I made two 9×9 pans instead of a 9×13 pan. Then ont he day when I want to make them, I just defrost them overnight in the fridge or during the day. Just know that you’ll likely need to bake them longer since they start off cold rather than room temperature.
