    KissKiss's Note:

    My aunt from Texas gave me this recipe as part of a family cookbook when I got married, and it's one of the most requested dishes that I make. Perfect for entertaining, paired with my Super-Rich Cornbread. Use any garnishes you like, such as salsa, sour cream, guacamole, black olives, etc. You will love this dish!

    Units: US | Metric

    • 12 corn tortillas (flour can be used, too)
    • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    • 1/2 cup onion, chopped
    • 6 ounces canned diced green chiles
    • 1 teaspoon chili powder
    • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 1 teaspoon cumin
    • 1/2 cup bottled salsa
    • 2 (15 ounce) cans green enchilada sauce (or 1 big can, I think 32 oz.)
    • 6 cups cooked chicken, shredded (buy a couple rotisserie chicken breasts at the supermarket and shred those to save time)
    • 2 cups chihuahua cheese, shredded (Mexican cheese found in specialty cheese case)


    1. 1
      Heat oven to 350 degrees. Wrap tortillas (6 tortillas in two packets) in foil and heat in oven until warm and soft.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, (back at the ranch), in a large heavy saucepan or cast iron skillet, sauté onion in oil for 3-4 minutes.
    3. 3
      Add spices and green chilies, cooking over a low heat.
    4. 4
      Add salsa and chicken, increasing heat to medium and stir until hot. (If the mixture seems dry, add a little enchilada sauce.).
    5. 5
      In the bottom of a 13 x 9 inch casserole, spread about 1/4 of the enchilada sauce.
    6. 6
      Place even amounts of the chicken mixture on each tortilla, roll up, and place in baking dish seam-side down.
    7. 7
      Pour the remaining sauce over the top and sprinkle with cheese. Bake for 15-20 minutes at 375 degrees until the cheese is hot/bubbly and a little browned.

      These were really good! I made a few changes. I added cilantro to the sauce and corn to the filling. I also served with some pico de gallo. Thanks for a such a great new addition to our menu!
