Chicken enchilada bubble up

August 27, 2017

I am so excited to share this latest bubble up creation with you all! This chicken enchilada bubble up was AMAZING… and doesn’t it just look so pretty πŸ™‚ I love bubble up’s and I’m pretty sure all of you do too, they are simple and become family favorites! When I decided to create this enchilada dish I went out on a hunt for enchilada sauce and soon learned it is not as easy to find out here in Ontario, maybe if I had tried a specialty store but time was against me for that.. So I quickly turned to my friend Google and searched if “taquera sauce” which is what I found in my local grocery stores was similar to enchilada sauce and yes indeed it was.. The recipe calls for enchilada sauce and if you can find it near you great, but if not then use the taquera sauce. My good friend Dawn ( on instagram) and fellow weight watchers Canadian ambassador got a head start on this one and made it for her family last week, they all loved it!! Serves 6 at only 5 freestyle smart points per serving

Recipe type: Main meals
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 6
5SP blue & purple, 6SP green,/6PP per serving
  • 7.5oz package of biscuit dough, I use great value (bought in the U.S) they are similar to pillsbury but pillsbury discontinued the 4 value pack of 7.5 oz tubes, with 10 small biscuits in each, if you can not find the small 7.5oz pack use a larger pack and weigh out the portion you need, I recommend cutting your biscuit pieces smaller as well..
  • 2 cups cooked shredded chicken (8 ounces)
  • 1 cup enchilada sauce
  • 1 diced red pepper
  • 1 diced tomato
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 cup reduced fat shredded cheese, I use a 3 cheese blend, any is fine.
  • Green onion
  • Diced avocado (optional)
  • Diced fresh cilantro (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 350F, spray a 9x13 casserole dish with some non stick spray.
  2. Cut your 10 small biscuits into 6 pieces each.
  3. Use just ¼ cup of your enchilada sauce and place in bottom of casserole dish just enough to cover it.
  4. Place ½ of your cut biscuits in dish on sauce.
  5. In a bowl mix your chicken with remaining ¾ cup of enchilada sauce, diced peppers, diced tomato and chili powder.
  6. Spoon half of your chicken mixture on top of your biscuits, spreading out evenly.
  7. Sprinkle ½ cup of cheese, then repeat layer, remaining biscuits, remaining chicken mixture and remaining cheese.
  8. Top with diced green onion, loosely cover with foil and bake for 35 minutes, remove foil and bake another 15 minutes.
  9. Top with fresh avocado and fresh cilantro (optional, but the nutritional info does include the avocado)
  10. Cut into 6 equal servings, each one weighing approx 6.5oz, store any leftovers in the fridge, bubble up should freeze well.

    Did you include avocado in the points value or do we need to add points for the avocado. Did you use green or red enchilada sauce?

      Reply David January 8, 2018 at 10:25 am

      The images show a red enchilada sauce and the avocado is listed as optional, so i’m guessing that means you’d need to add the points.

        HI David, as stated in recipe directions (number 9) the nutri info does include the avocado, and the sauce was the only sauce I could find here in Canada, my guess is enchilada sauce will be the exact same in nutri info as the one I used

    When you freeze it, do you freeze it baked? Or before baking? How would you thaw it?

      Hi Jess, I have not froze it but I think it will freeze ok, definitely after baking it, and likely thaw it out on counter then heat in oven, microwave might make it too soggy

    My wife recently got back into WW and wanted to try a freestyle meal and this was the first one we picked. It turned out amazing! I made the slight change of instead of using a fresh tomato, i used half a can of the Rotel tomatoes with the diced chiles in it since we love the flavor and heat from those, and it was great! Can’t wait to try other recipes on here.

    Do you think I could use the 2-ingredient dough in this recipe instead of store-bought biscuits? I’m worried the 2-ingredient dough might be too dense….?

    Hi Ana, I made this dish following your recipe, but used the 2-ingredient dough instead of store bought biscuit dough. It was a little dense, but yummy. I made my own enchilada sauce because I didn’t have any handy. My whole family loved this dish. The 2-ingredient dough (1/2 cup ea. Self rising flour and 1/2 cup plain non fat greek yogurt) is 6 points. There are six servings in total (therefore the dough adds 1 point per serving). Question-how would this substitution effect that SmartPoints of this recipe per serving?

      Hi, just so you know it’s Kate (not Ana) πŸ™‚ I’m glad you all enjoyed it and happy to hear the 2 ID worked well.. so the biscuit pack has 17Sp for the whole roll, your dough would be 5 or 6 depending what brand of flour you used.. so you’d be knocking off approx 10-12 points, my guess is it would go down 2 points per serving but best to do the proper recipe building in the WW app

    I couldnt get this down to 5 pts due to the only biscuits I could find was the Pilsbury large ones and only used 6. This made it 6 pts for me. Next time I am going to try the 2 ingredient dough to make it a lot less.

      Hi Rebecca, yes I have seen some trying the bubble ups with that, my advice would be to pre bake it first, the biscuits I buy are a small 10 pack, there is 17SP in the whole package

    Made this a few days ago using the 2 ingredient dough. I think I added too much dough/not enough sauce. The flavors were nice (could have been spicier), but…all that dough was unpleasant. Would maybe try again with 1/2 as much as I used and maybe increase the enchilada sauce and add in something to make it spicier. I’m sure it was user error…but…well, does anyone want 5/6’s of a pan of this? It’s still in my fridge. πŸ™‚

      Did you use the right size biscuits? 7.5oz small package of 10.. if so then perhaps maybe your oven just needs extra time, you can try pre-baking the dough a little

      Hi AJ, 1/2 an avocado is 5 points, so you could probably safely save a point without using it

    Chicken Enchilada Bubble Up… Delicious! We don’t care for reduced fat cheese in this house, so I used regular fat sharp cheddar instead. I also used more chicken than this calls for, and added some extra spicy salsa, adjusting the points as necessary when I put the recipe into my tracker. I’m not really much of a cook, and don’t often try new recipes. I’m glad I tried this one. My husband & I thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you, Ms Drizzle!
