Did you know I’m half Mexican?
Anyone who knows me is pretty surprised when they find this out because I’m pretty darn white. Although I may be white I still LOVE to cook Mexican dishes. One of the recipes I make all the time is Las Palmas Green Chili Chicken Enchiladas. Not only are they so easy but they are so good and are a hit at any function! I also like that they are easy to make in mass quantities and are also good if you make and freeze them. They only require a few ingredients…
AND did I mention how YUMMY they are?!
- 2 cups chicken, cooked & shredded
- 3 cups monterey jack cheese, shredded
- 1 19 oz. can Las Palmas Green Chile Enchilada sauce
- sour cream
- 8-12 corn tortillas
- 1 4.5 oz. can chopped green chiles
- In a small bowl, combine chicken, 2 cups cheese and green chiles (for the chicken I buy skinless boneless chicken breast on sale when it's $1.67/lb and cook it in my crock pot on high for a few hours. When it is no longer pink on the inside I let it cool in the fridge and then I shred it and take out the fatty parts)
- In a small skillet, bring enchilada sauce to boil. Remove from heat.
- Dip each tortilla into heated sauce for a few seconds to soften.
- Spoon 1/3 cup of chicken mixture and 2 tablespoons sour cream down center for each tortilla. I usually put the sour cream in a sandwich bag and cut the bottom tip which makes it easier to squirt right down the center.
- Roll the tortilla and place seam-side down in 12x8 inch baking dish.
- Pour remaining heated enchilada sauce over top. Sprinkle with remaining 1 cup cheese.
- Bake 20 minutes at 350. Makes 4 servings.
This is after you have flash-fried the tortillas in the sauce, added some chicken and some sour cream.
Rolled up and in the pan.
Leftover sauce is poured on top and sprinkled with cheese. It’s now ready for the oven!
