It's no secret that preparing any chicken dish a challenge at home. Mostly because my husband hates chicken.
This Sunday was a little different because I took my hubby grocery shopping at one of his favorites stores: Smart and Final, and purchased two Grade A First Street whole chickens for under $11! So of course I was inspired to cook something yummy to make my hubby love chicken once and for all!

With two beautiful birds in tow, I decided to freeze one and make chicken soup with the second. My goal is to make three dishes with the first chicken. I started by cooking a basic Chicken soup, and using the cooked chicken to make green chicken enchiladas. I plan to use the broth to make chicken noodle soup, and any left-over chicken for a salad!
Today I am going to share with you my green chicken enchiladas recipe, which simply starts with the chicken that was cooked in the chicken soup.
|Ingredients for the Green Chicken Enchiladas.|
Ingredients to prepare 12 enchiladas include:
- 1/2 of a 28 oz can of El Pato green enchilada sauce (room temperature or slightly heated)
- 1/4 cup chopped white onion
- 1/4 portion of Cacique Ranchero Queso Fresco
- 4-6 tablespoons of the Cacique Crema Ranchera con Sal
- 3 tablespoons sliced black "canned" olives
- 12 corn tortillas
- 1-2 cups shredded chicken (Expect to use 1/4 to half of a whole cooked chicken for every 12 enchiladas.)
|Once you are done rolling with your first row, add more sauce over the enchiladas.|
|Add the Cacique Crema Ranchera con Sal over the enchiladas.|
|Sprinkle the cheese and chopped onion over the enchiladas.|
|The delish green chicken enchiladas are ready to be enjoyed immediately after cooking!|
I hope you enjoy this dish as much as my once chicken-hating husband did!
Of course, I would love to know if you tried this recipe and welcome your comments!
