Green Chicken Enchiladas

Sauce

Ingredients

  • 4 cups water
  • 6 medium size tomatillos, husks removed and washed
  • 2 jalapenos, stems removed
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • ¼ diced yellow onion (about 1/3 cup)
  • 1 cup Shirley J Universal Cream Soup & Sauce Mix
  • ½ cup fresh cilantro, chopped

Directions

In a sauce pan combine 2 cups of the water, tomatillos, jalapenos, garlic and onion, cover and boil until the water is almost gone (approximately ¼ cup remaining).

Enchiladas

Ingredients

  • 12-6 inch corn tortillas
  • 3 cups shredded cooked chicken (rotisserie chicken works great)
  • 4 cups cheese (jack, mozzarella, or cheddar)

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°. Mix together the chicken, 2 cups of the cheese, and 1 cup of the sauce mixture to make the filling. Then individually, lay out the tortillas and place approximately 1/4 c. of the meat mixture in the center of each tortilla, roll and place in a greased 9x13 baking dish. When all the enchiladas are rolled, cover with the remaining sauce and cheese and bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes.
