The best summertime Sheet Pan Chipotle Cheddar Corn Chicken Enchiladas. Chipotle chili seasoned chicken, charred sweet corn, and poblano peppers tossed with salsa verde. Wrap it all up in tortillas topped with two kinds of cheese and bake to golden cheesy perfection. Finish these light and healthy enchiladas off with avocado, lots of cilantro, and fresh lime. The perfect weeknight enchiladas made entirely on one sheet pan in less than an hour.

As promised yesterday, a summer Mexican inspired Monday night dinner for you all! Oh, these enchiladas. I’ve been excited about them for over a week and I’m looking forward to making these again tonight for dinner. Because there will indeed be an Instagram story featuring these enchiladas. They are just so delicious.

Since it is now peak summertime (wow, time is flying), I am embracing summer’s produce stars all month long. Corn is going to be a regular throughout July and August. My family loves sweet summer corn and I enjoy finding new ways to incorporate it into simple recipes, like last week’s corn ravioli.

This week, I’m switching it up completely and going Mexican…enter these enchiladas. They really do scream summer, and they’re the simplest to throw together on a weeknight too.

The inspiration.

Really the only inspiration behind this recipe was the desire to use summer corn in a new way. Well, that and time. This summer more than ever I’m really focusing on time and how I am spending it. With our weather being almost picture-perfect this last week, I want to make sure I’m getting out to enjoy it before summer is gone.

This means simple recipes that don’t require too much prep work or time.

Sheet pan dinners are the name of the game. Their only downside is the use of the oven, but for me, it’s worth it. I love cooking everything all at once. It just makes life simpler and always turns out a delicious family dinner.

Really hoping you all agree, because my hope is that everyone is adding chicken enchiladas to tonight’s dinner menu. Or at least add them to your dinner menus sometime soon!

The (simple) details.

To make these sheet pan chipotle cheddar corn chicken enchiladas it all starts with a sheet pan and chicken. And since I feel like some of you may ask, for all of my sheet pan dinners I really love using a sturdy sheet pan like this one.

Toss the chicken simply with chopped chipotle chilies in adobo, salt, and pepper. We love slightly spicy, smoky chipotle chilies. But if you prefer a low heat level, just use one to two chilies. If you don’t have canned chipotle chilies, feel free to use dried chipotle chili powder or even just your favorite chili powder.

To that same sheet pan, add a few ears of fresh corn, poblano peppers, sweet yellow onions, and lots of garlic. Now, put everything in the oven and roast it. Once the chicken is cooked, remove it from the pan…

This next step is key…broil the corn and peppers until lightly charred. Trust me, you must do this. A little charring on your vegetables gives them a whole new life and adds levels of both flavor and texture. Just be sure to watch them closely. The broiler does quick work and food can often go from lightly charred to burnt in a matter of seconds.

To finish up…

Simply shred the chicken, remove the kernels off the cob, chop the other vegetables, and assemble the enchiladas with some sharp cheddar cheese and your favorite jar of salsa verde.

Tip: My preferred method to easily remove the corn kernels is to simply lay the ears of roasted corn flat on my cutting board. Then cut down the side of the cob to remove the kernels. Then rotate the cob and continue cutting and rotating the corn until all the kernels are removed.

Now bake the enchiladas for a bit to melt all that cheese. Less than an hour later your house will smell like your favorite Mexican spot. And you’ll have darn good enchiladas to enjoy!

Toppings are key.

I always add lots of toppings! Fresh cilantro and avocado are a must for us. But then I also love adding either crumbled cotija or feta cheese, a dollop of plain Greek yogurt (sour cream is great too), fresh chopped green onions or chives from the garden, and finish with lime zest and juice.

Never forget the toppings!

Tip: for visual appeal, you can leave some of the charred corn out of the enchilada filling and sprinkle it over the top of the enchiladas just before serving. Love the look of a little charred corn on top of an enchilada.

Serve these with a side of white rice, brown rice, or quinoa. Suddenly your Monday night will go from boring to your own little Mexican fiesta. I recommend rounding out the meal with a salty margarita…because it’s summer and why not?!

Enjoy and happy Monday! Feels like it’s going to be a great week!

  • 1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
    2. On a baking sheet, toss the chicken with 1 tablespoon olive oil, the chipotle chilies, and a pinch each of salt and pepper. Arrange the corn, poblano, onions, and garlic around the chicken. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Transfer to the oven and bake for 15 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through. Remove the chicken from the baking sheet. Switch the oven to broil. Broil the vegetables until lightly charred, 1-2 minutes. Watch closely, then remove everything from the oven.
    3. Shred the chicken with two forks. Remove the corn kernels from the cob, de-seed the poblano pepper and cut into slices, and chop the onions and garlic. Add everything back to the baking sheet and toss with 1 cup salsa verde, half the cheese, and the cilantro.
    4. Pour 1 cup of the salsa verde onto the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish. Spoon the chicken mixture down the center of each tortilla, tuck, and roll. Place the tortillas, seam side down, into the baking dish. Pour the remaining salsa verde over top of the enchiladas. Top with the remaining cheese. Transfer to the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes, until the cheese has melted. Top as desired and enjoy warm!

    Delicious!!! To save time, I served the roasted chicken and vegetable mix in tortillas with the cheeses and homemade roasted tomatillo salsa and cilantro. Used 2-3 cups frozen corn and extra adobo chili and its sauce. I’d love to do the extra enchilada steps next time but with 4 small kids, I was lucky to get as far as I did! If you want to serve these hot from the oven, do all your chopping first – easier than chopping hot filling. But A+ recipe.

  2. I’ve been making this dish since I discovered it back in 2020 when you first posted it! It is delicious – everyone I make it for loves it! I use some Dubliner cheddar cheese in with the rest of the cheese. Oh yeah, this recipe inspired me to grow tomatillos, and I make my own salsa verde just for this recipe ❤️

    This is so delicious! I followed the recipe but next time I will add less chipotle peppers. It was perfect spice for me but my kids had a difficult time!

    I’d been eyeing this recipe since it was first posted and finally my poblanos were ripe. Our power happened to go out while I was prepping. My husband fired up the generator and we cooked everything on the Traeger. It. Was. Amazing. This is definitely going into our summer rotation!

  9. This is unbelievably good and so easy!! I was making food for 10+ people and I made the filling the night before, then rolled and baked them when it was time for dinner. We couldn’t get enough so now it’s a monthly staple in our house!

    These were a super tasty summery take on enchiladas. Based on other reviews, I added some Mexican oregano, cumin and Chipotle chili saucey goodness to veggies. Grilled everything instead of roasting. 2 ears of corn, 2 poblanos, and a few summer squash, cause I have a bumper crop. Used a fresh local salsa verde and sharp white cheddar. Yum.

    1. Hi Charlotte,
      Happy Friday! I am so excited that you enjoyed this recipe, thanks a lot for giving it a go! xT?

      1. Can I make the filling maybe about two hours before I roll and bake tortillas? If so should I try to keep the filling warm until ready to roll?


        1. Hey Mary,
          Totally! No need to keep the filling warm, it will warm through while baking. I hope you love this recipe, please let me know if you give it a try! xx
