Delicioso Enchiladas!

Come join in the festivities 
for this weeks
Foodie Friday
Cinco de Mayo

I have to give credit 
for this YUMMY
recipe to 
Tyler Florence!

1 1/2  pounds  boneless skinless chicken breasts
seasoned with S&P and  2 tsp cumin  and smoked paprika
I red onion , chopped
2 cloves garlic minced
1 c. frozen corn (optional - I don't always add this)
1 can diced green chiles
1 can diced chipotle chiles
1 can fire roasted tomatoes
1/2 tsp all-purpose flour
16 corn tortillas
1 1/2 cup canned enchilada sauce
1 cup shredded cheddar/jack cheeses

Brown chicken with seasoning then remove from pan.  Add onion,  garlic, canned chiles and chipotles,  then add the tomatoes  and saute for about a minute.
Shred the chicken into strips and add back to the mixture.   Dust with flour to help set.
Microwave tortillas  on high for 30 seconds to soften.  Coat the bottom of 2 (9x13) pans with 
a ladle of enchilada sauce.  Dip enchilada into sauce to lightly coat.  Spoon 1/4 cup of chicken mixture into each tortilla.  Fold over .  Place 8 enchiladas in each pan - seam side down.  Top 
with remaining enchilada sauce and cheese.
Bake for 15 minutes in preheated 350 degree oven until cheese melts.  Garnish with sour cream, scallions, chopped tomatoes, cilantro.  

Also you can just layer it in  the pan like lasagna.  Enchilada sauce down first. Dipped tortillas Chicken mixture, Cheeses. Etc. for 3 layers.  I do this if I am in a hurry.  Also, sometimes I cheat and use a rotisserie chicken instead.    

Tyler can cook for me any ol' day!
How about you?

Check back again this weekend....

He's cute and he can cook! What more could a girl ask for? His wife is one lucky gal.

That's weird about your local celebration. I don't think we have that much problem around here and this is like little Mexico.

Well if it is good enough for Ty to make it will certainly be made in our kitchen in the future. Happy Cinco de Mayo.

The enchiladas wouldn't last 3 minutes at my house--and we'd lick the platter clean! They look delicious. I can't wait to try this.
Hope you and dear J. are doing well.

Elizabeth said...

I love enchiladas! I make them in layers like a lasagna.

Judi said...

I love the looks of this recipe. I've never had it before but I definately will give it a try. Yummy!
Isn't it great to be able to cheat with storebought rotissaire chickens?
Have a lovely day
