Four-Ingredients Chicken Verde Enchiladas
Yes, this post really does say four ingredients and yes, these enchiladas really are good! I was a bit skeptical....how could a recipe with only four ingredients actually taste good enough for me to blog? But, they do! They are delicious!! AND these enchiladas are incredibly quick and easy to make. I had them prepped and ready to pop into the oven BEFORE the oven was even finished pre-heating. Super cool, huh? The perfect meal for a weeknight when the kids have after-school activities and you are strapped for time.
Since you are only using four ingredients, make sure they are high quality!! Good quality tortillas really make a difference!!!
This recipe comes from one of my fave blogs, Kevin & Amanda (she has great step by step photos!):
1 (16 oz) jar Salsa Verde
2 cups shredded pepper jack cheese
3 cups (12 oz) cooked, chopped chicken
8 medium (soft taco size) flour tortillas
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9×13 baking dish with cooking spray. Spoon a thin layer of salsa verde into the bottom of the dish.
2. Combine chicken, 1 cup salsa verde, and 1 cup cheese in a bowl. Spoon about 1/3 cup mixture down the middle of a tortilla. Fold sides over and place seam side down in prepared baking dish. It’s okay if they overlap a bit.
3. Top with remaining salsa and 1 cup shredded cheese. Bake uncovered for 20-30 minutes until bubbly. Serve and enjoy!
<I added a dollop of sour cream and fresh made guacamole to these enchiladas. I served with a side salad and chips with salsa and guac to complete the meal. Enjoy!>
