Chicken Verde Enchiladas

Chicken Verde Enchiladas are a tasty and simple dish that won’t take forever to make. Imagine having these cheesy delights with minimal effort and having some left for the next day. All you need is a store-bought rotisserie chicken and a jar of salsa verde.

First, shred the chicken into a big bowl. Add a mix of Monterey Jack and cheddar cheese, some cumin, and a pinch of chili powder. Season it with a bit of salt and pepper. Give it all a good stir.

Next, warm up small flour tortillas in a pan to make them soft. Spoon the chicken mix onto each tortilla, roll them up, and put them in a baking dish.

Now, it’s time for the green sauce. Mix salsa verde with sour cream and pour it over the rolled-up tortillas. Sprinkle the rest of the cheese on top.

Pop it in the oven for about 30 minutes until the cheese is melted and everything is heated through. When it’s done, let it sit for a few minutes. Garnish with cilantro and serve with lime wedges on the side.

These Chicken Verde Enchiladas are not only easy to make but also easy on the wallet. You can make them as mild or as spicy as you like, and you can even add things like onions or black beans for more flavor.

The best part? You’ll have some tasty leftovers for a quick and delicious meal the next day. It’s a win-win for a simple and satisfying dinner.
