This has been in my box for months and I finally made them yesterday. It is a good recipe in many respects. However, for the time it takes it doesn’t deliver enough on flavor. I followed others’ advice and did the chicken in the crock with taco seasoning and with a 1/4 cup of jarred jalapenos in juice to up the flavor of the chicken which was excellent advice.
When simmering the chicken in the skillet, I replaced the water with a 16 oz jar of fire-roasted salsa and tossed in a can of corn for color and texture. Given the amount of work that goes into it, we were expecting some knock-your-socks-off Mexican flavor. Even with the onions, the chilies, all the seasonings, the salsa and the enchilada sauce, we all found it a little bland. It was pleasant and I’m sure kids and those who don’t like spice/heat would love it. But if you’re looking for a good solid spicy enchilada, you’ll probably be a bit disappointed.
These were incredible! The only change I made was to leave out the green onions with the chicken mixture. They already had onions in them, so I figured adding them on top was good enough–and it was! Also, I made my own enchilada sauce (given 5 stars on this site). This dish was a huge hit, and will definitely be my “go-to” enchilada recipe.
I give it 5 stars for ingredients but honestly think you are going through too much trouble. I make a casserole instead of rolling out enchiladas since that adds more work AND if you do it casserole style, you get more servings out of it. It tastes INCREDIBLY authentic this way as well.
The only ingredients I choose to use that are different is I omit the medium onion and olives and use corn tortillas instead of flour. Here’s how I do it. I boil and shred the chicken and add it to all of the other ingredients into a bowl including half of the cheese and 1/4 enchilada sauce and mix together to make a “mix.” Take your casserole dish and coat the bottom of it with some enchilada sauce and set aside. I then scorch each tortilla one by one in a skillet on medium heat for with a little oil for 10 seconds or until soft and layer the bottom of a casserole dish
. Take the mixture, spread over the tortillas evenly and sprinkle with cheese. Keep layering until you get to the top, cover with remaining green sauce and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Cover dish with foil and pop into the oven! 25-30 minutes later you uncover and let it bake for about 5 more minutes to set. THE END!
