"Enchiladas Verde" or Green Enchiladas with Chicken

User Rating 4 Star Rating (1 Review)


Enchiladas Verde
White cheese and chicken make these Enchiladas Verde memorable as you take the first bite and taste the tangy green chile sauce and chewy corn tortillas. Green Enchiladas with Chicken are always a family favorite so serve some tonight.

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour


  • 12 corn tortillas
  • 3 cups green chile sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups white shredded cheese (panela, jack, mozzarella, queso blanco)
  • 1/4 cup diced green chiles
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded chicken
  • Warm oil
  • 1/4 cup cotija cheese, crumbled


Toss together the chicken, chiles, cheese and 1 cup of the chile sauce.

Dip a tortilla in the oil to soften in. Or you can brush each tortilla with oil and bake in a 400 degree oven for 5 minutes to soften them.

Lay a tortilla flat and fill with about 1/4 cup of filling down the center. Bring the edges over the filling to close it and then lay the tortilla seam side down in a 9x13 baking dish. Repeat until all of the tortillas are filled.

Pour remaining sauce over the top. Sprinkle with the cotija. Bake for 20 minutes at 300 degrees.

Very Good, Member JackCalhoun

This is a very good Tex-mex recipe; very much like the food found right here in San Antonio. If guests ever ask for a recipe for green enchiladas like the ones they had in San Antonio, this is the recipe I would send them to for a start.
