Ranch Chicken Enchiladas are flour tortillas wrapped around a shredded taco chicken center that is covered in cheese and a salsa-ranch mixture. These enchiladas are always on our monthly dinner rotation because my family loves them!

My family and I are all big ranch fans. We dip just about anything and everything into ranch dressing. You name it, we’ve dipped it. So it’s no surprise that these Chicken Ranch Enchiladas became a family favorite here in the Lofthouse casa. They are so warm and cheesy and filled with all the Mexican flavors you love.

Ranch Chicken Enchiladas are flour tortillas wrapped around a cheesy shredded taco chicken center that is covered in a salsa-ranch mixture. They make the perfect dish for any family dinner or occasion. Accompanied by Mexican Rice, Cilantro Lime Rice, or a Warm Bean Dip, you can be sure you’ll have one unforgettable meal! 🙂

If you have followed the blog for a bit, then you know what a die-hard Mexican food fan I am. Whenever Kale asks me where I want to eat when we go out, I always reply with one of our local Mexican food restaurants. It’s a true story. I can never seem to get enough of those delicious flavors. So it’s only understandable that I love to create delicious Mexican dishes from the comfort of my own home.

I would say these enchiladas are more on the Tex-Mex side rather than the Mexican, but they’re still just as tasty and so simple to make. It’s a dish that your whole family will adore, even those family members that are a little difficult to please! 😉

  • 3/4 cup prepared Ranch dressing

  • Preheat oven to 350° F. Spray a 9x13 inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  • Stir the salsa and Ranch dressing together until combined. Spread a thin layer of salsa-ranch mixture over the bottom of the baking dish.
  • Take one tortilla and place 1/3 cup of chicken down the center. Top with 1 Tablespoon cheese and 2 Tablespoons salsa-ranch mixture. Roll up and place in baking dish. Repeat.

Notes

* You can easily bake the chicken breasts or boil instead of cooking in the crock pot. Once cooked, shred and mix with chicken broth and taco seasoning. *

  3. Ranch enchiladas OMG!!!!!! What a wow of a recipe these disappeard in a flash, thank you for your wonderful dish!!!! Judith from England

  4. Made these tonight but with shredded pork instead of chicken (that’s what I needed to use 🙂 ) They were awesome! 2 of 3 kids devoured them and the 3rd will when I make them with chicken….she took one look at the pork and decided she didn’t like it. But these will definitely have a reoccurring place in my menu. Thanks!

    1. Yes, absolutely! After shredding up some of the meat I would mix it with some taco seasoning and a tiny bit of chicken broth for flavor. 🙂

    Chicken broth to moisten it up. It was *DelicIous*. So very good. All of us devoured it. Thanks for the great recipe!!
