5. Prepare Tortillas 

While the chicken mixture is simmering, warm the tortillas in a separate skillet or microwave until they are pliable. This will make them easier to roll.

6. Assemble Enchiladas 

Place a spoonful of the chicken mixture onto each tortilla, then roll them up tightly. Arrange the rolled enchiladas seam side down in the skillet, fitting them snugly together.

7. Add Cheese and Bake 

Sprinkle shredded cheese evenly over the top of the enchiladas in the skillet. Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake for about 15-20 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
