Tomatillo and Cilantro Shredded Chicken Enchiladas with Homemade Red Enchilada Sauce

IMG_9567

We had intended to make tamales...bought the corn husks, the masa harina, the lard and the twine...

but as the minutes ticked away (drawing "dangerously" {insert eye roll here}  closer to my husband's Fantasy Football Draft) we went with Enchiladas instead.

I felt annoyed. Frustrated. Like a big, old quitter!

Until these came out of the oven....

So... as far as his team is concerned...we'll see. 

As far as these enchiladas are concerned...they're surely a WINNER!


RECIPE AND METHOD:

We poached a 3lb chicken, then removed its skin and shredded its meat. (A store bought Rotisserie or any leftover chicken would be perfect too!)

Next we made Tomatillo-Cilantro Sauce (recipe follows) and once thickened, added our chicken to the sauce and folded together until well incorporated.

Salt and Peppered to taste.

Filled flour tortillas with the Chicken in Tomatillo-Cilantro Sauce, rolled them up and placed tortillas in a pan seam side down.

Covered with shredded Cheddar and Monterey Jack Cheese.

Topped with Emeril's Homemade Easy Enchilada Sauce (but a store bought version would also be fine.)

Sprinkled with Mexican Cotija Cheese (because we had some).

Covered with aluminum foil and baked in a 375 degree oven for 25 minutes. 

Served with Sour Cream and NEVER LOOKED BACK!  TAMALE SHA-MALE!

Tomatillo-Cilantro Sauce
by Lourdes Castro, Simply Mexican - Epicurious October 2009

Ingredients:

8 tomatillos, husks removed, rinsed, and quartered
2 to 3 jalapeños, stemmed and halved
1 cup lightly packed fresh cilantro, tender stems and leaves
1 clove garlic
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 onion, chopped
Salt and black pepper

Directions:

Combine the tomatillos, jalapeños, cilantro, garlic, and water in a blender and purée until well blended.

Heat the oil in a sauté pan over medium heat.

When the oil is hot, add the onion and sauté until the onion is limp and translucent, about 8 minutes. Add the tomatillo mixture. Season with salt and pepper. Cook for about 5 minutes, or until the sauce thickens.

Add the shredded chicken to the sauce and stir to coat. Allow to cook for 3 more minutes. Check the seasoning and adjust if needed.

Sweet! Throw tomatillo and cilantro on just about anything - and I call it a winner.

... but nothing beats a really good tamale ... or enchiladas in a pinch

StephenC said...

I'm reminded that I once made something like this, and just fell down with delight at the taste. Thanks for the reminder.

YUM!! They look amazing, better than anything you'd ever be able to order in a restaurant!! I've been wanting to make tamales again, too, but man, where does one find 4 hrs to do so??? However your tamale turned enchiladas has really made me want to carve out some time so I can make them cause these look GOOD :)

Mimi from California Avocados Direct said...

How about some thick and creamy avocado slices to go on top of those delicious enchiladas? Yummm!

Karen said...

I'm impressed that you even got as far as buying the ingredients for tamales...I've never gotten even that close. It just seems like such a daunting task!
But I'd have been thrilled with these enchiladas...that is one serious plate of good food.

Jenn said...

Those look absolutely AMAZING!!!

Marc van der Wouw said...

Very nice!!

Beth Michelle said...

Wow these look awesome. We dont have any mexican food here in Israel (none to write home about anyway) and I have forgone eating it for a year now! I will most definitely be trying these so I can get my mexican fix!

Heather said...

This looks like what you might call an easy weeknight dinner which I'm always looking out for! I want to try them!!
