From My Kitchen: Chicken Enchiladas!

I’m making these for dinner tonight, so I figured it was time for another recipe!

This recipe is super easy, presents beautifully, and best of all… it tastes great!!!  These are great for entertaining. You can put them together ahead of time and refrigerate until you are ready to bake (don’t spray them with cooking spray until right before they hit the oven).

3 cups chopped or shredded, cooked chicken (I boil the chicken & shred it with 2 forks)
2 cups (8 oz) shredded Monterey Jack cheese (with or without peppers)
1/2 cup sour cream
1 (4.5oz) can chopped green chiles, drained
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro (optional… I don’t usually use)
8 (8 inch) flour tortillas
1 (8 oz) container sour cream
1 (8 oz) tomatillo salsa (I like to use La Victoria thick & chunky salsa verde)

Toppings: diced tomatoes, chopped avocado, chopped green onions, sliced black olives, chopped cilantro

Stir together first 5 ingredients. Spoon chicken mixture evenly down center of each tortilla, and roll up. Arrange, seam side down in a lightly greased 13×9 baking dish. Coat tortillas with cooking spray.

Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown.

Stir together 8 ounce container sour cream and salsa (I always sample mine and sometimes add a bit more/less sour cream. Not all green sauces are created equal… some are ‘hotter’ than others, so pick one that suits your taste!).

Spoon sauce over hot enchiladas; sprinkle with desired toppings.

    I think I will cut up the tortilla rolls and then it sounds like an appetizer for my Saturday guests! Can’t wait!

    They LOVED this recipe, although they like spice, so I reversed the sour cream amounts and doubled the amount of chopped green chilies, but that was it, and my company had to hold themselves back so as to not spoil their dinner (I cut them into small portions and served as appetizers).

      YEA! So glad they liked them! I think I measured everything the first time… now I just throw everything into the bowl and taste it as I go. :)

    This sounds so yummy. I can’t wait to make and will probably add some other cheeses. We love our cheese. Thank you, for posting. :)
