One of the great culinary pleasures of life is rolling up spicy meats in tortillas that are lightly fried and throwing in some delicious homemade sauce, a process otherwise known as preparing enchiladas. Enchiladas are however a large meal so it’s probably something you’ll want to prepare to share with your family and friends.
Today we’re showcasing an enchilada iteration that involves some layered and charred tortillas with roasted tomato salsa, chicken, and cheese in a casserole style. Here is what you’ll need:
- Two jalapeños
- Two cored roma tomatoes
- A pair of poblano peppers
- One quartered onion
- Four garlic cloves
- Two cups of shredded rotisserie chicken
- Half of a lime
- Half a cup of roughly chopped cilantro
- Fifteen charred corn tortillas
- 1½ cups of shredded Monterey Jack cheese
Using these ingredients, arrange them all on a baking sheet and drizzle them with olive oil before broiling them for about two to three minutes until they’re lightly charred. Turn your oven on to 350 degrees and then stem, seed, and peel the peppers before adding all of the vegetables to a blender along with the lime juice and some salt for taste. Blend everything until it turns into a smooth salsa and set it aside for now.
In a large bowl add the two cups of shredded rotisserie chicken to a large bowl and then add one cup of the salsa and cilantro, stirring everything together. Grab the tortillas and Monterey Jack cheese plus the chicken mix and salsa and you’re ready for the next step.
For that first layer, spread a spoonful of salsa on the bottom of an 8-inch cast-iron pan. Layer five corn tortillas and overlap should it be necessary. Top with half of the chicken mixture, half a cup of cheese and three to four spoonfuls of salsa. Repeat as necessary and then bake everything for thirty minutes or until the cheese has melted and is bubbling.
