The Oven is the #1 Option

If you want to reheat a chicken/beef enchilada, then you should definitely consider the oven. While it can take a couple of minutes to get it heated to perfection, it is certainly worth the wait.

  • Place in oven and heat for about 10-15 minutes. You want to make sure it is fully heated, cheese melted and everything bubbling :).

  • Place enchilada on a microwave safe plate

  • Once finished, take out and enjoy.
