This recipe for green chile enchiladas has been on my blog for more than five years, and it’s continued to be a family favorite.
So, five years later. . . I finally did.
I love that this is the EASIEST recipe. If I’m feeling really on top of my life, I assemble these green chile enchiladas in the morning while the girls are eating breakfast and then just stick it in the fridge until dinner time and then I pop it in the oven.
But even without advance prep, you can have this ready to go in the oven in just a couple of minutes after your chicken is cooked.
Also, I’ve used all kinds of green salsa or green enchilada sauce for this recipe and they’ve all been good (I think once I used one that was really spicy, but that was back when I lived in Texas and had forty-seven salsa options to choose from, so I have no idea what brand that was).
This time, I used Pace’s new Salsa Verde because I was working on an Instagram campaign with them, and Bart (who didn’t know about that campaign or that I’d done anything differently) said, “These are the best they’ve ever been.” So, this is a thumbs up to that green salsa, plus even though it was medium heat, all three of my girls had second helpings, so it’s not too spicy.
Also, I’ll eat these with whatever tortillas I have on hand, but I do think the very best tortillas are the fresh flour tortillas.
Sometimes I cook them up myself using the Tortillaland flour tortillas, and this time I just made sure to buy ones in the bakery section that are freshly cooked kind instead of the ones that can sit on the shelf for a month or more and are a little thicker.
I feel like they taste better, make the whole thing less bread-y, and crisp up nicely on the edges.
(How did I just write that many words about tortillas?)
Anyway, the good news is that whatever kind of salsa or tortillas you use, it’s still going to be delicious.
I’m not even going to say one word about cheese brands or half-and-half varieties (mostly because I have no words to say about them).
