Servings 7 people


  • 3 cups shredded chicken see notes
  • 1 cup dairy-free cheese we prefer So-Delicious
  • 1 bunch cilantro optional
  • 14 gluten-free corn or flour tortillas

Enchilada Sauce

  • 2 15oz can tomato sauce
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  • In a medium saucepan, combine well all of the enchilada sauce ingredients and bring to boil. Then turn down to medium low and simmer for 10 minutes
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Once enchilada sauce is done simmering, pour 3/4 cup enchilada sauce into shredded chicken and stir to combine.
  • Cover the bottom of a 9x13 pan with enchilada sauce, about 3/4 cup
  • Wrap tortillas in a wet paper towel or towel and microwave for 1 1/2 minutes to heat. This will help them be more flexible (i.e. not break) when you are filling and rolling them.
  • Spread a generous 1/4 cup of chicken/sauce mixture into each tortilla. Wrap and place seam side down into the 9x13 pan. Repeat with all 14 tortillas.
  • Cover the top of the tortillas in the pan with the remaining enchilada sauce. Sprinkle with dairy-free cheese.
  • Cook in oven for 25 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and serve warm. Top with optional chopped cilantro or my Cilantro Lime Ranch (see notes for link!)


I like to make my shredded chicken by steaming 2 large chicken breasts in my instant pot (on the "Steam" setting) with 1/2 cup water for 10 minutes. When done and while still hot, I shred it by mixing it with my Kitchen Aid or hand mixer (covering with a kitchen towel to prevent a big mess!).
Delicious with my Cilantro Lime Caulirice as a side! Also tasty topped with my Cilantro Lime Ranch.
