This Chicken Enchilada Bubble Up dish couldn't be more delicious. You will never believe that it only has 235 calories and 5 Weight Watchers SmartPoints per serving. Packed with chicken, bell peppers, tomatoes, and cheese all smothered in enchilada sauce and baked with biscuits. Come on - you know you can't wait to try it.

Bubble ups are some of my favorite dishes to make and my family absolutely loves them. Lately I have been on a hunt to find enchilada sauce and that was the original inspiration for this recipe. But I was surprised at how difficult it was to find here in Canada. Luckily after consulting my good friend Google, I learned that in many stores here it is called taquera sauce. It tastes very similar and is much easier to find.

So back to the bubble up! All my bubble ups start with biscuit dough. I like to use the 7.5 oz. packages of small biscuits, which I then cut down into smaller pieces. This helps to ensure the dough cooks through completely. Then I cover the biscuit dough with a mixture of chicken, diced bell peppers, tomatoes, and enchilada sauce. I also add some extra chili powder, which is completely optional depending on the spice level of your enchilada sauce. Then the cheese! Because every good enchilada has cheese. Once this bakes in the oven, I like to top it with cilantro and diced avocado. You can add any toppings you like.

Fun Ways to Personalize Your Chicken Enchilada Bubble Up

  • Chicken is my go to protein for this dish but I imagine it would work with other proteins as well. You could try lean ground chicken or beef. You could also use black beans for a vegetarian option.
  • Since enchilada sauce can be hard to find in Canada, I used taquera sauce, which is the closest option I could easily find. If you are in the states, you could use red or green enchilada sauce. You could also use a taco sauce.
  • Toppings! Consider trying my favorites of cilantro and avocado. You could also add olives, jalapenos, onion, or queso fresco.

I use Great Value, 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

Chicken Enchilada Bubble Up made with refrigerated biscuit dough, chicken breast, enchilada sauce, and veggies is a surprisingly light dish that is packed with flavor.
