Enchiladas TNT


Roast Chicken according to recipe.
Or boil it if you prefer. I think roast tastes better and less mess.

To boil:
Rinse your chicken in cold water and place them in a pot and cover with water. Add salt/pepper and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a low simmer, cover for 3/4 hour or so.

When the chicken is cool enough to touch, de-bone the chicken.
Discard the skin, bones, gristle, and any other parts you don’t want to eat!

Place your chicken on a clean cutting board and cut the chicken into approximately 1 inch chunks.
Chop onion into small chunks and dice Serrano peppers. Combine cheeses.

In a large bowl combine chicken, onions, Serrano, 1/2 jar of the salsa, sour cream and 1/2 of the cheese.

At this point you can start assembling your chicken enchiladas.
Heat the vegetable oil on medium high heat in a pan big enough to fit the tortillas in.

Assembly Time

This is easier with 2 people:
When the oil is hot, take a tortilla with tongs and hold them in the oil until they bubble. The tortillas should bubble right away. If they don’t, your oil is not hot enough. You can also dry fry them as well.

The goal is to make the tortillas soft so they are easy to roll.
Transfer the coated tortillas to a plate or tray and repeat.

Ladle some sauce in a glass dish.

Now the other person can add a large spoonful of chicken mixture on top of the coated tortilla. Roll it up and place it in an oven-proof dish.

After you have placed your chicken enchiladas in the dish, use a ladle to spoon the enchilada sauce over the top of all the enchiladas. Spoon plenty of sauce to completely cover the enchiladas and the bottom of the dish.

Then sprinkle finely chopped yellow onions on top or not.

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and place the chicken enchiladas in the oven. You don’t need to cover them for about twenty minutes, remove, sprinkle desired amount of cheese on them and return to the oven until cheese is bubbly.

Take the chicken enchiladas out of the oven and serve with chips and remainder of salsa and sour cream.
Refried beans ain’t bad on the side…Ya Herd!!!
