We have Taco Tuesday religiously every week. My kids hold me to it. They practically bounce in from school excited that it’s taco night. Unfortunately sometimes I’ve forgotten it’s Taco Tuesday and I don’t have all of the taco goods on hand. Which quickly morphs Taco Tuesday into Enchilada Tuesday. Oops. My kids didn’t mind at all when I brought these to the dinner table. Chicken, cheese, and sweet honey corn – they were delighted.

I’ve partnered with  Green Giant™ Valley Fresh Steamers today for this quick and easy dinner. I have five kids so I obviously don’t spend a lot of time getting diner prepared because quite frankly, I don’t have it!

 I love this Honey Roasted Sweet Corn because it has corn, red peppers, and a hint of honey for the perfect sweet/spicy combo.

It saves me a ton of time for busy nights. You could also use a rotisserie chicken here.Sweet Corn and Chicken Enchiladas - only 5 ingredients for this easy family dinner.Fill your tortillas with about 1/2 cup of the mixture.

  1. Enchiladas are one of our favorite dinners right now but sometimes the same flavors get boring. I love the corn in this recipe. Such a good idea!

  2. Those sound super delish! What a great product because I don’t necessarily have time to roast corn for a week night dinner!!

  3. Would corn tortillas work just as well? I am definitely trying this recipe!

    • Coming from a Mexican household, corn tortillas are *meant* for enchiladas. If you mildly fry them before wrapping them around the filling and throwing them in the oven, it’ll have the most amazing crunch and they’ll hold their shape better. :3
      (to fry, just put a good amount of oil in a pan–corn, vegetable–and then wait until they puff up, flip over, and then wait for 30 seconds or so, and it should be ready to cook with! you just want them soft. It’s a fantastic way to make your own taco “shells”, too, it’s how my family has always done it~!)

      Yes, corn would be great!

  4. Oh yummy! Love the corn in these enchiladas. I bet the kids would love them too!

  5. YUM! I put corn in almost every Mexican dish I cook. I’m kind of obsessed. These look amazing! Plus, I’m always looking for easy weeknight dinners. Pinning!

  6. These were fantastic !! I roasted fahita veggies while I prepped this casserole n placed sour cream, salsa n sliced lettuce on the side for serving. I noticed in the recipe it calls for 2 ten oz cans of enchilada sauce … 1/2 cup used in the filling n the rest poured over the casserole b4 baking- but the pictures did not show that- just wondering why…….thank you!!!!!

    • Christy {The Girl Who Ate Everything} says:

      I ended up adding some of the enchilada sauce to the filling after I took the pic. Sorry if that was confusing.

  7. 5 Kids? How do you do it? I look up to you! I have two and I feel like I am going to pull my hair out at times. But I love that you guys do Taco Tuesdays. I think I might have to start doing that, but maybe we’ll make it Mexican food Tuesdays. 🙂 And I will start it by making these enchiladas. They look delicious! Thanks

  8. Oh my gosh! This looks delicious! 😀

    We’ve been working on making the transitions to more home cooked meals vs frozen/fast food. This is definitely going on our grocery list! Thanks for sharing

  9. I’ve never used green enchilada sauce but this looks like a great use for it! Yumm

  10. Looks great but I can’t eat enchilada sauce.
    Do you think I could sub in sour cream on the inside and then just top with cheese?
