Chicken Enchiladas Ingredients:

Makes 16
Chicken Mix
2 Boneless Chicken Breasts
4 Boneless chicken thighs
1/2 Onion, chopped
1 can Corn
1 Chipotle Pepper
1 tbsp Chipotle Pepper Juice
2 Garlic Cloves, chopped
1 tsp Cumin
3 tbsp Olive Oil
1 Juice from Lime
Crock Pot Juice, all of it
Salt and Pepper to taste

1 pkg Corn Tortillas
1 Can Whole Green Chili’s
1 Can Enchilada Sauce, (Click HERE for Red & HERE for GREEN)

Garnish
1 cup Mild Cheddar Cheese
Fresh Cilantro, chopped
2 Green Onions, chopped scallions
1/2 cup Lettuce, chopped
Sour Cream, preference amount

Season the Chicken with Salt and Pepper then place in a Slow Cooker and cook for 6 hours on Low.  Prep Vegetables and Combine the Onion, Corn, Chipotle Pepper and Garlic in a Bowl.  Set everything else aside.  When the Chicken is done, carefully remove and separate from the accumulated crock-pot liquid, but save the liquid for later.  Finger pull or fork apart the Chicken into torn pieces and season with Cumin.  Then, in a hot pan set on Med-High, add olive oil and the Corn and Onion Mixture, then salt and pepper to taste.  Cook for 2 Minutes, then add the Chicken, Lime and Crock-pot Juice and stir until everything is mixed thoroughly, then kill the heat.

For each Enchilada, completely dip and submerge 1 Tortilla in the Enchilada Sauce, then lay flat on a plate, cutting board or counter top.  Add 1 Green Chili to the center and a 2 to 3 tbsp of Chicken Mix, then starting from the back back of the Tortilla, roll towards the front and lay each Enchilada down in a Baking Pan or Casserole Dish.  Repeat until it’s full.  Ladle in 1 cup of Enchilada Sauce over the tops of all the rolled Tortillas, then cover with cheese.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20 Minutes, then garnish and Serve!

Poor Man's Gourmet Kitchen

I’m just a regular guy in search of his bliss and I find that bliss in food and all of its many cultural differences. A very seasoned and experience chef taught me how to use my pallet to best serve and prepare a dish with all of its natural flavors from other foods before ever introducing “forced flavoring”, such as salt. My goal isn’t just to teach how to incorporate these products into simple gourmet dishes but to show, how easy, it can be done from anyone’s Kitchen with cheaper, convenient substitutions that will not only blow your mind, but insure that most no one will be able to ever tell the difference! Welcome to The Poor Man’s Gourmet Kitchen!
