And when you observe Katie on Instagram, you recognize that she makes and delivers the Bossticks sourdough bread weekly, helps Lauryn and Zaza prep meals of their crockpot and has a publication that brings fast, straightforward and satisfying recipes proper to your inbox.

Immediately, in honor of Cinco de Mayo this weekend, Katie is right here to share her inexperienced chili rooster enchiladas. Suppose wholesome, fast, minimal components with a kick. You possibly can prep this dish together with Katie’s peach habanero salsa forward of time, so whether or not your celebrating at house or out with pals, you gained’t should carry a finger all day.


My mother made these for us on a regular basis as children, I actually don’t know the right way to make a small batch of this LOL. Makes 8 servings.


1/2 a rotisserie rooster, meat pulled off the bone

1 cup “that inexperienced sauce” from HEB or a canned inexperienced enchilada sauce

1/4 white onion, roughly diced

1/2 c tomatillo salsa or any inexperienced salsa

1/4 c cilantro

1/2 c complete milk Greek yogurt

1 c shredded monterey/colby jack cheese

1 clove of garlic

corn tortillas

salt and pepper to style

1 inexperienced onion, sliced – to garnish

extra cilantro – to garnish


+ Preheat oven to 375F.

+ Combine rooster, inexperienced sauce, inexperienced salsa, cilantro, garlic, yogurt, 1/4 cup of cheese, onion, salt and pepper right into a meals processor. In the event you don’t have a meals processor, simply chop every thing very small till you might have a paste-texture meat combination.

+ In a 9×13 casserole dish, dump in 1/2 c of your inexperienced sauce or enchilada sauce into the underside and unfold evenly, this can assist tortillas from sticking to the pan.

+ Heat your tortillas within the microwave for 30 seconds simply so that they’re malleable. Scoop about 2 T of the meat combination into every corn tortilla and roll up finish to finish, inserting it seam facet DOWN within the pan till you employ all of the meat filling. Simply squish all of them up towards one another good and tight till the pan is crammed all the best way up, however enchiladas are in a good single layer.

+ Combine the inexperienced salsa with remaining inexperienced sauce and pour over all of the enchiladas (don’t overlook the perimeters!) evenly.

+ High with remaining cheese everywhere in the high. Bake within the oven for 30min or till the cheese is melted and golden on high.

And nothing goes higher with enchiladas than an ice chilly skinny margarita…

+ 1.5 ounce blanco tequila
+ 1 ounce of Cointreau ( use Triple Sec if that is unavailable )
+ limes
+ slightly lemon
+ a speck of agave (a SPECK)
+ possibility: 2 squeezes of a grapefruit and even pomegranates
+ half rim of salt or Tajin

+ use a lime to rim the glass & then add salt to solely half the rim. In a shaker add 3/4 recent lime juice, one squeeze of lemon, then add Cointreau (or Triple Sec), & tequila.

Rule of Thumb: when making a cocktail, begin with the most cost effective components first & end with the most costly final. Add ice to the shaker final (you don’t need the ice to soften into your components). Add ice to rimmed glass & shake and pressure your cocktail over the ice. Garnish with a grapefruit slice or lime wedge.  Currently I choose a Baccarat glass however the traditional blue rimmed glasses are all the time stylish.

There you might have it. Like we stated, prep the enchiladas forward of time and pop it within the oven for a stunning Cinco de Mayo meal, or preserve it within the freezer to make use of one other day.
