These delicious Salsa Verde Chicken Enchiladas are incredibly easy to make and bursting with bold flavors.
My family absolutely loves these enchiladas, and it took minimal effort on my part. Something that is a major priority to me during this time of homeschooling, working from home, and being spread pretty thin all around.
To shred the chicken you can either boil it or throw it in the Crockpot seasoned with salt and pepper. I typically only do 4-6 hours so, it’s not over cooked.
Take it out and shred. I love Trader Joe’s Verde Salsa. It tastes so fresh and really takes the dish to the next level. You can try other brands as well, or make it from scratch. I was trying to make this pretty quickly so this jar was a perfect fix.
In a small saucepan, I saute onions, garlic and peppers in olive oil. Then I add in the shredded chicken along with 1 jar of the Salsa Verde, and some shredded cheese.
Top each tortilla with this mixture and a little extra cheese.
Roll them up and place in a baking pan. Top with another jar of Salsa Verde and more shredded cheese.
Place in the oven for 20-30 minutes on 350 and out comes perfection.
Top with some fresh cilantro and sour cream! Enjoy!
