Chicken Chile Verde Enchiladas

"This is the way my Mom has been making enchiladas my whole life. She got the basic recipe from neighbors when she was a teenager. They are made with flour tortillas instead of corn and get a pasty texture which we enjoy. We always eat this with Recipe#195501 for a nice unhealthy comfort food meal. My Mom has also frozen these alongside the rice chile verde in aluminum containers...they bake up great in the oven!"

  • After all of the tortillas are filled and in the baking dish pour all of the remaining enchilada sauce over them.
  • Top with the remaining 2/3 cups of shredded cheeses and sliced olives.

    This was a big hit and will be added to my repertoire at least once a month or when I am having ethnic cravings. I used this recipe as a guideline, first I cooked the chicken breasts in chicken stock, 1/2 tsp. ground cumin and a sprig of fresh oregano for about 15 minutes until chicken registered 165 degrees Fahrenheit plus. I allowed cooked chicken breast to cool then shredded using a couple of forks. I added a small amount amount of stock and about 1/2 cup Herdez Mexican cooking sauce Tomatillo Verde. Then I finely diced 1/2 brown onion, finely chopped a small amount of fresh oregano and cilantro (from my herb garden) and mixed with chicken adding finely shredded cheese mixture of Monterey Jack and mild cheddar.<br/><br/>Step two: heat taco size corn tortillas (I used Mi Ranchito brand), heat tomatillo sauce in skillet then dip heated tortilla in sauce, set tortilla on a plate fill with chicken mixture add additional cheese to taste. Roll tortilla and place in baking dish and repeat until you have the amount of enchiladas needed. Use the sauce in skillet to pour over top of enchiladas, add more cheese to the top and bake. I diced a small amount of jar jalapeño for top of my enchiladas.

    very good, used fresh white corn tortillas instead of flour and monterrey jack with jalapenos. left off olives due to personal preference. sauteed the onions and the green chilis together because i'm not crazy about crunchy onions with chicken. this dish was very yum, and and is going in my favorites cookbook. thanks, engrossed
