Very easy to make! Chicken and Monterey Jack Cheese filled flour tortillas topped with green enchilada sauce. I make Mexican Rice to serve on the side.

Las Palmas green sauce in the can makes these taste great. I find other sauces to runny. When I am in a hurry I cheat and use Rotissere Chicken and it is super quick to put together. I like to stir about 1/4 cup of the sauce into the chicken and cheese mixture. If you want it hotter add pepper-jack cheese. Read More

The basis of this recipe is really good but you can go through a few more steps to jazz it up. First instead of boiling your chicken cook it in a little lemon juice with onion green onion and a few extra spices-chili powder garlic salt pepper and paprike. Then when your filling your tortillas use about a spoonfull of suace to each one. The las palmas sauce is just about the best thing next to making your own suace. Serve with sour cream on top and your set to go! Read More

Simple to make and very good tasting. My husband wished they were more zippy - we added half a can of chopped green chilies to the sauce but next time I'll add sauteed onion and garlic too. Read More

You need to shred the chicken after you cook it then recook in oil garlic hot sauce. You can make it the day before. You're going to neeed some onions and black olives. Don't make gringo food. Read More

I wanted to find a verde enchilada dish without using soup or sour cream. This one was just what I was looking for. I did cook 3 medium chicken breast and I'm sure it was more than one pound in a pressure cooker with cumin garlic pepper and paprika and diced some onions. Hint: used the broth for Mexican rice. Then I shredded the chicken and added a large can of diced green chilies to it. I filled 10 flour tortillas with the chicken and cheese which fit into a 9X13 pan perfectly. Used the Las Palmas canned green sauce over the top also added more shredded cheese slices of pickled jalapeños and black olives to the top. They cooked for 30 min. and I let them sit for about ten before cutting them. These enchiladas were so tasty you just kept wanting to eat them even though you were stuffed. And they didn't even need any sour cream. So much healthier. Thanks Shackl Read More

I love this recipe it was quick and easy. We had guests over and they loved it. I have a picky husband and he loved it too. I did modify the recipe a bit though. In the Mexican culture we don't typically make enchiladas with flour tortillas so I stuck to the usual corn tortillas. I dipped each tortilla in hot oil for about 20 seconds each and drained them and then dipped them in the Las Palmas Green Chile Sauce (large can). I then added chopped cooked chicken (I boiled the chicken with garlic powder onion powder cumin salt and pepper) adding pepper jack cheese and a heaping tablespoon of green chile sauce into each tortilla roll it up and when all are done pour the remaining sauce over the top and finish just as the recipe asks. When they were done cooking I sprinkled from a small can chopped green chiles and chopped green onions. I will definitely make this recipe again. Very good recipe but with a little tweaking it comes out perfect. Read More

Instead of Monterey jack cheese I subbed cream cheese mixing it with the chicken until it was melted and pouring a little bit of the sauce into the mixture. Topped with a colby/Monterey jack cheese shredded mixture. This was delicious and easy to prepare. I cannot wait to make again. Served with sour cream and refried beans. Read More
