Swiss Green Enchiladas

The difference between Swiss Green Enchiladas and the rest of enchilada recipes is that these are topped with a cream sauce and Swiss cheese and then baked. Enchiladas can be made ahead of time, covered tightly, and then stored in your refrigerator for a couple of days until you’re ready to bake them.

Ingredients

  • 2 ½ cups of SALSA VERDE you can find the recipe here
  • ½ cup Mexican cream or sour cream
  • ½ cup chopped cilantro
  • 2 cups of fully cooked shredded chicken (leftover rotisserie chicken is also ok)
  • 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese or the one available in your area Muenster or Monterey Cheese also work fine
  • 12 corn tortillas
  • ½ medium onion thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoon vegetable oil for frying

Instructions

  • Place Salsa verde, Mexican Cream and cilantro in a blender, process until you have a smooth sauce. Set aside.
  • Heat a skillet over medium heat; warm oil and dip the tortillas one at a time into the oil to soften, giving it just a few seconds per side. Besides softening them for easy rolling, another of the reasons that we do this is to avoid the tortillas from breaking. I prefer to brush the tortillas and then warm them in a skillet to use less oil. Transfer onto a plate covered with paper towels to drain any excess oil. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Season the chicken with salt and pepper. You can also add garlic powder if you like.
  • Fill the center of each tortilla with the chicken and roll it up.
  • Spread ⅓ sauce in a 9″ baking dish.
  • Divide shredded chicken evenly among tortillas, roll them up, and arrange the enchiladas in 1 layer, seam side down.
  • Cover with the rest of sauce; sprinkle with cheese. Bake 30 minutes or until cheese starts to brown. Serve immediately
