Easy Chicken Enchilada Recipe

Mexican is my favorite food of all time and usually the number one cuisine I hit when I'm out for lunch or dinner. Seriously, obsessed. The other night I took a stab at an easy chicken enchilada recipe. I went for a green chicken enchilada dish and put a skinny twist on it. Who knew, sour cream is unnecessary. Cheese? Must-have.

Prep time: 20
Cook time: 10-20
Total time: 30-40
Yield: 3 servings (6 enchiladas)

Rotisserie Chicken : 1 
Salsa Verde : 1 can = 2 cups
Olive Oil 2 tsp
Garlic, minced : 2 tsp
Mexican Blend Cheese, shredded : 1/2 cup
Greek Yogurt 0% : 1/2 cup
Cholula Hot Sauce : 5 dashes 
Cumin : 5 dashes
Chili Powder: 1 dash
Cilantro : 1/4 cup
Six-inch corn tortillas: 6
Optional for Garnish:
Green Onions, sliced : 2 
Jalepeno, fresh & sliced : 1/2 

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
2. In a small bowl, mix greek yogurt, cumin, hot sauce and chili powder and set aside.
3. Wash and chop cilantro and set aside.
4. Cut rotisserie chicken and break apart into shredded pieces and set aside.
5. In a large skillet, heat olive oil and minced garlic for about 30 seconds.
6. Add salsa verde and heat for about 1-2 minutes, stir occasionally. Remove from heat.
7. Add greek yogurt mixture, chicken, 1/4 cup cheese and 1/8 cup cilantro. Stir.
8. In a 9x9 casserole dish, spread about 2-3 spoonfuls of the mixture on the bottom.
9. Fill each center of the corn tortilla with about 3 spoons of the mixture. Roll around and place ends down in the baking dish. Do this for the 5 remaining tortillas.
10. Cover the tortillas with the remaining sauce and place in oven.
11. Cook time varies. All of the food is cooked so you are just trying to heat them up. The cheese is the best way to tell. Once the cheese is melted you are good to go. Mine only took 8 minutes.
12. While your enchiladas cook, chop 2 green onions and 1/2 a jalepeno for garnish if desired.
13. Remove enchiladas from oven, add desired garnish.
14. Serve two tortillas per person.
