Creamy White Chicken Enchilada Bowls

Single serve enchilada bowls were my very first meal prep I did in my glass bowls. I’ve been making these for 5+ years and it just didn’t occur to me that people would think it was so brilliant. I made a video of me making them one time and everyone went crazy asking for the recipe. Well here we are 4 years later and I have 2 meal prep cookbooks featuring so many. different recipes made right in my favorite glass bowls. If you haven’t yet tried my enchilada bowls, give these creamy white chicken enchilada bowls a try and thank me later!

RECIPE TIPS

  1. Pre Cook Your Corn Tortillas – You can microwave corn tortillas until soft (about 30 seconds to 1 minute on a plate), or if you have a gas stove you can cook them right over the flame.
  2. Use 4 Cup Bowls– I use standard size corn tortillas and they fit perfectly in my favorite glass bowls. If you are trying to reduce the amount of carbs per bowl, use street size corn tortillas.
  3. Short on Time? Buy pre cooked chicken and enchilada sauce at the store!

HOW TO BULK THESE ENCHILADA BOWLS UP

Everyone has different nutritional needs. If you’re wanting to increase the calories in these bowls simply do more layers. If you’re wanting to bulk them up with extra veggies here are some I think work well in enchilada bowls:

  1. Riced Cauliflower
  2. Shredded Squash
  3. Bell Peppers
  4. Spinach
  5. Mushrooms

SUBSTITUTIONS

  • Meat Substitutions– Use any meat you like! Shredded pork or beef work really well in enchiladas. If you look at the images closely you can see I used pork in some and chicken in the others! Both are great. If you need some great protein prep recipes, Meal Prep Cookbook Volume 2 has them all!
  • Corn Tortillas – Easily swap in some flour tortillas if you prefer. If you want to eliminate the tortillas all together you could. This would just turn into more of a burrito bowl, which would still be tasty!
  • All Purpose Flour– The creamy sauce is this recipe needs the flour. If you’d rather just use a pre made enchilada sauce you can!

MEAL PREP SUPPLIES USED

4 cup glass bowls -Make sure the bowls you’re purchasing are oven safe. They will say so on the label if purchasing in store.

Half size sheet pan – This is the perfect size for 5, 4 cup glass bowls. You can of course use a full size sheet pan but your bowls will slide around. I wish I could find a link for my cute white sheet pan in the images and video but I can’t. I bought it at Home Goods a few years ago.

REHEATING INSTRUCTIONS

These bowls can easily be reheated right in the microwave for 2-3 minutes. If you prefer, reheat the oven and warm them back up for about 10 minutes.

FREEZING INSTRUCTIONS

Easily freeze these enchilada bowls. Let them cool, cover with the lid, and store for up to a month in the freezer. Make sure you always let the bowls defrost some before putting them in the microwave so they don’t crack.
