2 teaspoons
finely chopped fresh garlic
2 (4-ounce) cans
diced green chiles
2 teaspoons

1 cup

1/4 cup

Enchiladas

1 cup

corn tortillas
3 cups
shredded cooked chicken
16 (3/4-ounce) slices
white Land O Lakes® Deli American, cut into quarters

Chopped tomato, if desired
Chopped fresh cilantro, if desired

Directions

  1. Place water and salt in 3-quart saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat; add tomatillos. Cook 10-12 minutes or until tender. Drain; cool 10 minutes.
  2. Combine cooked tomatillos, onion and garlic in 5-cup blender container. Cover; blend 1-2 minutes or until smooth.
  3. Combine tomatillo mixture, green chiles, jalapeño peppers and chicken broth in 10-inch skillet. Cook over medium heat 4-5 minutes or until bubbling. Reduce heat to low; continue cooking, stirring occasionally, 8-10 minutes or until slightly thickened. Stir in cilantro.
  4. Heat oven to 375°F. Heat oil in 10-inch skillet over medium heat. Using tongs, dip tortillas in oil a few seconds to soften. Place onto paper towels to drain.
  5. Spread 1 cup tomatillo sauce in bottom of greased 13x9-inch baking dish. Spread 1 tablespoon tomatillo sauce onto each tortilla. Layer about 1/3 cup chicken and about 3 pieces cheese on lower third of each tortilla; roll up tortilla. Place into prepared pan, seam-side down. Pour remaining sauce evenly over enchiladas. Spread remaining slices of cheese evenly over top.
  6. Bake 15-20 minutes or until sauce is bubbly and enchiladas are heated through. Garnish with chopped tomato and cilantro, if desired.
