The first time I made these, my husband was in the other room making all kinds of noise about his “head is sweating, they’re hot,” and “they’re good!!!” 🀣🀣🀣

Oh, yeah. Delicious!!! Can I have this every other day, please? πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹

Enchiladas Suizas Verdes Recipe

  • 8 tortillas
  • 2 cups cooked shredded chicken, (see my Shredded Chicken recipe)
  • 2 cups salsa verde (we use a *medium* flavor intensity)
  • 1 cup freshly shredded sharp Cheddar cheese, divided (1/2 cup for sauce + 1/2 cup for topping)
  • 1/2 cup cilantro leaves, chopped, divided (1/4 cup for sauce + 1/4 cup for garnish)
  • 1/2 cup full-fat sour cream
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
  • extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) spray
  1. Heat oven to 350β—¦ F.
  2. Spray 9′ x 13″ glass baking dish with EVOO, then set aside.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium heat on stovetop.
  4. Add 1 tsp EVOO and heat.
  5. Add 2 tsp minced garlic and saute for 30 secs.
  6. Add 2 cups salsa verde and cook until warm, then remove skillet from heat.
  7. Add 1/4 cup cilantro and 1/2 cup sour cream to skillet, stirring until well blended.
  8. Scoop out 1 cup of salsa mixture and set aside.
  9. Add 2 cups shredded chicken and 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese to skillet, stirring until well combined.
  10. Add 2 Tbsp of the set aside 1 cup of salsa mixture to the bottom of the baking dish and spread as evenly as possible (I use a rubber spatula). It’s not going to fully cover, by there should be some moisture on the bottom of your whole dish.
  11. Place parchment paper over countertop and lay out as many of the tortillas as you can fit in the space you’re working with.
  12. Add 1/3 cup of chicken mixture to the middle of each tortilla, then roll.
  13. Transfer each enchilada to the baking dish, seam-side down, and touching each other – tightly – side by side.
  14. Spread remaining 14 Tbsp of set aside salsa mixture over the enchiladas.
  15. Top with remaining 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese.
  16. Cover with aluminum foil.
  17. Bake 15 mins, then remove foil and bake 10 mins more – until the cheese is melted.
  18. Remove from oven and top with remaining 1/4 cup cilantro.

The below nutrition facts are a very rough estimate as your choice of tortillas, salsa, and sour cream will greatly impact the data.
