From My Kitchen: Chicken Enchiladas

I eat a lot of salads during the summer, it’s just too hot sometimes to be cooking in the kitchen. But then Mexican food seems so appropriate for the weather, and I just have to make something that makes my taste buds celebrate. And Mexican food always does that. So. Enchiladas it is. Chicken Enchiladas to be exact. It involves quite a few steps, but it is by no means hard to make.

What you’ll need:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large sauce pan, add olive oil and onions. Sauté for 3 minutes. Add chicken and green chiles. Add salt and pepper, then sauté for about 7 minutes.

Add the beans to the mix, stir well. Add one can of enchilada sauce, stir.

To assemble the enchiladas, lay out 6 tortillas, then on each layer 1 tbsp enchilada sauce, chicken mixture, and then cheese. Fold the tortillas to make the enchiladas, just as pictured above.

Add the some more of the enchilada sauce on top of the enchiladas, then the rest of the cheese. Place in a greased 9 x 13 baking dish, and bake them for 20 minutes. To serve, add sour cream and fresh cilantro on top. Serve by itself or with yellow rice.

Bon Appétit!

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
