Salsa Verde Chicken Enchiladas

Salsa Verde Chicken Enchiladas


My grandpa made chicken enchiladas that were very similar to these Salsa Verde Chicken Enchiladas.

Kind of a mix between this recipe and this one that Janelle posted last year.

These Salsa Verde Chicken Enchiladas are simple and delicious and I really just love the flavor.

From the simple homemade sauce with the salsa verde mixed in, and then the kick of the pepper jack cheese all melty and brown on top.

We make these on a regular basis (because I like them so much) and since moving to Santa Fe, I sometimes substitute the salsa verde with green chile.

I only mention this, and didn’t add it in the recipe because you can’t find green chile in most places like you can in New Mexico.

Because I don’t mean the little cans of chopped green chiles.

That’s different.

Although you could try that too. 1/2 cup would be about 2 of the little cans.

But, we’re big fans of green chile in our house and probably always will be.

Any way you make these enchiladas, they’re delicious.

One of the best parts is the melty cheese on the top.

Sticking it under the broiler for a few minutes really makes a big difference.

@Janelle, can you send a link to the new website? I am trying to find the recipe myself. I’ve made these many times but unfortunately don’t have the recipe memorized. They are so delicious and I am ready to share with others ❤️

Right below the "Sharing is Caring" buttons for social media is the link to the recipe. It used to be on my site but is now on another. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Love this recipe. It has become one of our favorites. But, for some reason the recipe is not showing up on pinterest or anywhere! HELP!

can't find the recipe??? are we supposed to write it down???

Nancy, I sure hope the recipe isn't showing up on Pinterest. That would mean Pinterest or someone has stolen the recipe. However if you scroll down to the bottom you'll see a blue button that will take you to the recipe! It's been moved to Jodi's new website.

I made these for the second time and they were delicious both times! Today however I added one can of black beans. It really improved the dish I did not need improving. Would definitely recommend it that way. Thanks for a great recipe

I want to make these ahead, refrigerate, and bake them a couple of days later. Any recommendations on how long I should bake them if I am taking them out of the fridge?

Great question Liz! I'd add 5 minutes to the bake time. Just watch the top that the cheese doesn't get too dark. You may need to cover with foil for the last 5 minutes to ensure you don't get a crunchy top! Great question! I hope you love them!

Can you taste the sour cream? My family is not a fan of it. We are unfortunately picky eaters and I am not the greatest cook so that makes it more difficult when trying new recipes for them.

As a picky eater your taste buds are supercharged for the taste of sour cream. So whether I can taste it or not is irrelevant. However as a substitute, try greek yogurt! The recipe should turn out great still without changing the flavor too much. I hope this works for a substitute for your family! Thank you so much for your comment!
