Expert Tips

Serve prepared enchiladas on a bed of lettuce.

Directions

  • 1 Combine shredded chicken and grilled onion. Set aside.
  • 2 In a large frying pan over medium heat, add 2 tablespoons vegetable oil. Once oil is hot, add green enchilada sauce and 1 cup sour cream. Mix together until combined. Reduce heat to a simmer. Set aside.
  • 3 To make the enchiladas: Preheat the oven to 375 °F.
  • 4 Over medium heat, fill the bottom of a large pan with 1 inch of vegetable oil. Once heated, fry corn tortillas on each side until slightly bendable.
  • 5 Arrange fried tortillas along bottom of a baking dish, and fill the center of each one with a heaping tablespoon of the chicken mixture. Add a pinch of Monterey Jack cheese and roll each tortilla into a tube. Continue until the entire baking dish is full, lining up and arranging the stuffed tortillas as you go.
  • 6 Take several tablespoons of the creamy green chile sauce and spoon it over the enchiladas.
  • 7 Sprinkle a little more cheese over the top, and bake for 30 minutes.
  • 8 Remove from oven and top with a few dollops of sour cream, to taste.
  • 9 Serve and enjoy!

Growing up in East Los Angeles meant that I had a huge selection of Mexican food at my disposal. From flautas to sopas, pozoles, tacos, and enchiladas, I had a huge variety of dishes to choose from. My dearest friend Mari’s family owned a restaurant in East L.A. called La Serenata. They were the pioneers of the gourmet Mexican food movement here in L.A. It was there that I experienced my first plate of enchiladas suizas (Swiss enchiladas). An enchilada suiza is basically a chicken enchilada in a creamy, green chile sauce. It's very simple, but so yummy! I've been making them ever since, and they are now a family favorite!
