4 boneless skinless chicken breast, cooked – cooled & shredded
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup chopped white onions
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons dried cilantro
2 cups pre-shredded cheddar cheese, divided
1 (15 oz. can) red enchilada sauce, (I prefer ‘medium’ spice)
1 (8 oz. can) green enchilada sauce
1 cup sour cream, divided
½ teaspoon onion powder
½ teaspoon garlic powder
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
12 (8”) corn tortillas
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Shred cooled chicken using two forks, and set aside.
In a medium skillet, heat to medium-high heat and saute onion in olive oil until translucent, adding garlic, and cilantro, then mix together and continue sauteing 30 seconds. Remove from heat (divide in half).
Pour 1/3 of the red enchilada sauce to coat the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish that has been lightly sprayed with oil beforehand.
In a small bowl, combine the chicken, ½ the onions, and cilantro mixture, the green sauce, ½ cup sour cream, 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese, onion powder, garlic powder, and salt and pepper, to taste, while gently folding so as not to break up chicken further.
Microwave tortillas for 20 seconds just until soft (so they do not break apart while folding). Place the filling inside tortilla; roll them up and place in baking dish (seam side down). Repeat until your baking dish is full. Pour remaining 2/3rds of the red sauce to cover the tortillas. Sprinkle the enchiladas with other ½ of the onions, and cilantro mixture, including remaining 1 cup of cheese.
Bake for 30 minutes. - Enjoy!
Garnish options: Shredded iceberg lettuce, chopped tomatoes, sour cream, sliced avocados, and chopped cilantro.
Serving options: With refried beans (adding: cumin, picante sauce, cilantro, garlic and onion powder to beans while heating) topping beans with shredded cheddar cheese. Also, with steamed rice (once cooked, toss with 1 can diced Mexican-spiced tomatoes—heated first for 2 minutes in the microwave). Both of these can be served on the side.
