Corn tortillas are filled with shredded chicken and baked in a creamy green tomatillo sauce. The 'suizas' sauce is Spanish for 'Swiss,' a nod to its creaminess.

Instructions Checklist
  • Line a griddle or large frying pan with aluminum foil. Heat over medium-high heat. Add tomatillos, onion, chiles, and garlic. Grill until charred, 7 to 10 minutes, turning occasionally to cook evenly. Allow vegetables to cool slightly.

  • Transfer grilled vegetables to a blender with water, cream and 1/2 cup Chihuahua cheese; blend until smooth. Season with chicken bouillon granules; add additional water to thin sauce, if necessary,

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Heat a small drizzle of oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Fry tortillas in hot oil for a few seconds, one by one, until soft but not crispy. Add more oil as needed. Place cooked tortillas on a baking sheet lined with paper towels to absorb excess oil.

  • Pour 1/3 the sauce into a 9x13-inch glass baking dish. Fill tortillas with equal amounts of shredded chicken, roll up, and arrange in a single layer over the sauce. Pour remaining sauce on top and cover with remaining 1 cup mild Cheddar cheese.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until melted, about 25 minutes.

These were delicious! The sauce recipe makes way too much for 12 enchiladas, so I will cut it in half next time. I used jalapenos with seeds instead of Serrano chiles. I roasted the chiles, onion and garlic on the barbecue for ease. 5 minutes, turned and 5 minutes more. The garlic came off early. I used pepper jack cheese. Instead of frying the tortillas, I put a damp paper towel over them and steamed them in the microwave, less fat and they become very pliable. I made Spanish rice for a wonderful meal. This recipe is a keeper. Read More
