Spicy Chicken Enchiladas
Slow cooked chicken with spicy broth mixed with cheese makes a great filling for enchiladas. Great recipes for the weekend, or use a crock pot for a weekday meal!
quartered and skinned
can sliced black olives
can enchilada sauce
el pato tomato sauce
pico de gallo
Chop up the onion and garlic
In a large pot, heat up 2 tbsp of oil oil and brown the onion, garlic and peppers.
Add your chicken, and spices
Then brown everything for about 2 minutes.
Pour in the water, chicken stock and add the bay leaves. If it doesn't cover the chicken add more water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and let simmer for about 4 hours.
remove the chicken and place in a bowl. with a fork shred the chicken, it should fall apart easily. Remove any bones and cartilage while doing this.
I like to take a ladle full of the broth from the both and mix it in to add in some flavor to chicken. Taste the chicken at this time. Add more salt to taste.
Chicken is done!
On low heat, pour in about 3/4 cup enchilada to 1/4 cup el pato mixture in a medium sized pan.
With your station ready, preheat the oven to 350° F.
Take a tortilla and submerse it in the enchilada sauce mixture for about 15-30 seconds. You'll know its ready by how pliable it is.
In a 9x13 glass baking dish, plass the tortilla in and add some chicken across like a burrito
Then add the cheese
Roll it up and place against the dish
Keep repeating this process, as the dish gets filled up, i'll just stack the new tortilla on top of the already rolled up enchiladas so I don't need to use an extra plate.
Cram as many as you can get in there, I usually get about 12, stacking like this.
Smother with the remaining enchilada sauce can. for good measure i like to add whats remaining in the pan, then use the cans.
Top with the rest of the cheese, add the olive and green onions.
Place int he oven for about 15-20 minutes. Serve with guac, sour cream and salsa. And of course, goes great with some re-fried beans and Spanish rice. Enjoy!
