Are enchiladas allowed for Taco Tuesday? They most definitely are when they are creamy salsa verde chicken enchiladas! My family really likes to have tacos on Tuesdays. Breakfast tacos, soft tacos, crunchy tacos… we eat them all. But sometimes it’s nice to mix it up on Tuesdays with some enchiladas instead of the usual tacos!

Easy To Make Creamy Salsa Verde Chicken Enchiladas – 6 Ingredients!

My family loves Taco Tuesday. I on the other hand love meals that are quick and easy to make. Especially when it’s a recipe that can be made up in advance and then popped in the oven to be on the table in less than 30 minutes. That’s a major win in my recipe book.

When it comes to tacos the prep can be really time consuming. There’s just so many toppings to get ready. Shredding cheese, cooking hamburger meat and cutting up lettuce and tomatoes. A lot to do! But like I said, my family loves Taco Tuesday. Fortunately I have the kids fooled that creamy salsa verde chicken enchiladas are perfect for Taco Tuesday. Even though they aren’t technically tacos!
