Eating For Life: Green Chilie Enchiladas

Decided to cook out of the Eating For Life cookbook tonight. Main course was Green Chili Enchiladas. They turned out pretty good. Very messy to make.

Challenges included the messy part, dipping the tortillas in the green chili sauce before filling them. That was slimy, but also the corn tortillas I got broke at the slightest bending. And I think they may have been smaller than Bill was expecting. But they did make 9 to the recommended 8.

Taste was good. You boil the chicken – which is very bland at that point. Then you shred it. Then you saute 4 green onions, a seeded, minced jalapeno, and 2 table spoons of cilantro for two minutes. Then you add the chicken and some of the green chili sauce and let it cook for about 5 minutes.

Then you messily fill and roll the tortillas and put them in a bake pan. Pour the rest of the chili sauce on them and 1/2 a cup of low fat cheese. Then bake for 15 minutes.

The tortillas come out crisp. The filling is very flavorful. Actually a bit spicy, even though they had me seed the pepper. I did pick a fairly large one.
