Tomatillo Chicken Enchiladas


  • 1 batch of Tomatillo Salsa
  • 2 cups shredded cooked chicken (we used breast meat)
  • 8 oz. (2 cups) shredded hot pepper cheese or Monterey Jack cheese (we used Pepper Jack cheese)
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 12 (6-inch) soft corn tortillas, warmed


  1. Take 1 cup of the tomatillo salsa and spread it out over the bottom of a 13 x 9-inch baking dish. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Add the following ingredients to a large mixing bowl, stirring to combine: chicken, 1 cup of cheese, 1 cup of the tomatillo salsa, green onions, cumin, chili powder, and salt. Take 2 heaping tablespoons of the chicken mixture and place it down the center of a tortilla, rolling the tortilla up and placing it in the baking dish afterwards. Repeat with remaining tortillas. Once all your rolled-up tortillas are in the baking dish, spread 1/2 cup of the salsa over them, putting a cover on the baking dish before it gets placed in the oven.
  3. Cook for 30 to 35 minutes in the oven or until the enchiladas are heated throughout. Take the baking dish out long enough to add on the rest of the salsa and cheese, placing it back in the oven for an extra 2 to 3 minutes or until the cheese has melted.

Serves 6.

We really enjoyed eating this. We would suggest keeping all the seeds in the serranos for the salsa though ’cause we didn’t get the heat nearly as much in the enchiladas as we did when we were just eating the salsa with chips. You do still get the brightness of the salsa though. Combine that with the cheese and meaty filling, you have a delicious dish. These enchiladas are pretty easy to make and depending on the amount of people you’re serving, could last you two days or more !

Take care everybody !
