Quick Chicken Verde Enchiladas
IMG_9900
Jill was gone all week attending a conference where she had long days and nights. She let me know she would be getting home all week and said she was ready to be home and wanted to eat at home. I didn’t have time to marinate or do anything that took much time, so I thought comfort=mexican. We also generally go out to a mexican restaurant most Friday nights to kick off our weekend.

Without a recipe in hand, I took off for the store and picked up a rotisserie chicken. Picked up some corn tortillas, verde sauce, cilantro, pico de gallo, sour cream and some cheeses. Whipped up some margaritas and had it all done in minutes.

Ingredients:
Rotisserie Chicken
Store bought Pico de Gallo
Cilantro
Small Sour cream
Cheddar cheese block
Monterrey Jack block
1 can Verde enchilada sauce
Corn tortillas

Directions:
1. Preheat your oven to 350. In a large sauce pan or skillet add the pico de gallo and sweat out the onions for about 10minutes. Oil as needed.

2. In a skillet on medium low heat pour in your enchilada sauce to heat just beyond warm.

3. In a large bowl add your sauteed pico. Shred your chicken and add to the bowl. Spoon in some sour cream until the consistency you like. I then added fresh shredded cheese but saved most for the top. I put about a quarter cup of the verde sauce and fresh Cilantro. Set aside. IMG_9891

4. Since it was two of us I used small pan. Take your corn tortillas and add two at a time to the sauce to soften them up. I use my hands for this because tongs always seem to murder my tortillas. When soft pull them out and spoon in the chicken mixture. Roll them up and place them seam side down in the glass dish. Pour the remaining verda sauce evenly across the top of the enchiladas. Top with cheese, cover with foil and cook until the cheese melts. (remember everything is cooked ) IMG_9896

5. When you are about 10minutes out from serving. Put your oven on broil, remove the foil and let that cheese brown up. Serve with cilantro, margarita, rice, beans or whatever else tickles your fancy.
