Easy Weeknight Green Chile Enchiladas

Ingredients

Scale

8 oz green enchilada sauce (this one is my favorite)

1 package medium-sized tortillas (we like gluten-and-corn-free Siete Foods brand)

1lb chicken thighs or breast- cooked and shredded (see directions for instant pot, below or use rotisserie)

1/2 cup sour cream 1 4-oz can green chiles

1 1/2 cups shredded Mexican cheese

Cilantro, stemmed and chopped, to serve

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Pour 1/3 of the enchilada sauce into an 8×8″ dish.
  3. In a small bowl, combine shredded chicken (I prefer thighs- so much more flavor!), sour cream and green chiles.
  4. Place a small amount of mixture, as well as tablespoon of shredded cheese in a tortilla. Roll tightly and place on top of sauce. Repeat until all chicken mixture is used up (we typically get 6-7 enchiladas out of this recipe. Double for a larger batch).
  5. Cover with remaining sauce and top with shredded cheese.
  6. Bake in oven for 20-25 minutes, until cheese is melted and bubbly. Top with cilantro before serving.
