Lighter Freezer Friendly Creamy Enchiladas

Course Main Course
These freezer friendly enchiladas are much lighter than most of the recipes for creamy delicious enchiladas I've come across.


  • 8 flour tortillas
  • 1 1/2 C fat free Greek yogurt
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 1-2 chicken breast cooked and chopped
  • 1 4 oz can diced chilis
  • 1 1/2 C shredded cheese divided
  • 1/2 C milk
  • 1/4 onion chopped and sauteed or 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp taco seasoning
  • salt to taste


  • Mix yogurt, milk, chilis, soup, onion, taco seasoning and salt.
  • Set aside 8 spoonfuls of mixture.
  • Add chicken and 3/4 C cheese to the larger amount of the mixture.
  • Divide equally between the tortillas.
  • In a greased pan place rolled enchiladas secured with a toothpick.
  • Spread a spoonful of yogurt mixture on top of each enchilada and top with remaining cheese.
  • Remove toothpicks before baking.
  • Bake at 400 F for 45 minutes or freeze until ready to use.

Slow Cooker Enchiladas
Just assemble them like normal and instead of putting them in an oven safe baking dish place them in your slow cooker. Cover and cook on high for 45 minutes to 1 hour for easy delicious and oven free crock pot enchiladas! </p>
Alternatively if find positioning the rolled up portions difficult you can jut do more of an enchilada casserole by placing a bit of sauce on the bottom of your pot (after giving it a good spray of pam or spray oil). Then layer some filling and continue until you've finished your ingredients. Cover and cook on high for 45 minutes to 1 hour. 
Instant Pot Enchiladas
Now if you want to make this in the Instant pot I recommend using a spring form pan with a sling that fits your inner liner easily. Due to the circular shape of the pressure cookers I prefer to do the layered casserole style I just described. 
After you assemble the enchiladas (either rolled or casserole style) cover the pan with foil. Add 1 1/2 cups water to your instant pot liner add the enchiladas on the sling and cook on high pressure for 20 minutes with a quick release.
