Chicken Enchilada Bake

chicken enchilada bake
adapted from tasting table

note: cilantro would be better in this, but i didn’t have any so i used green scallions. i needed the pop of color

2 cups worth of shredded rotisserie chicken
1 onion, quartered
1 large garlic clove
1 dried ancho chile pepper, reconstituted in hot water
2 16 oz jar of salsa: salsa roja and salsa verde (you can use regular canned enchilada sauce if you want)
1 1/2 cups of shredded cheese, i used cabot’s extra sharp cheddar
1/2 cup chopped green scallions
corn tortilla
garnish: diced avocado and sliced radishes

pre-heat oven to 400F

in a pan, or in my case, in a pie dish, add the quartered onion and garlic clove. drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. roast for 15 – 20 minutes. remove from oven.

lower heat to 350F

in a vitamix, blitz together the roasted onions and garlic with the salsa and ancho chile pepper. set aside.

in a bowl with the shredded chicken, add about a cup of the salsa, a sprinkle of the green onions and mix thoroughly.

  1. Looks yummy. Did the boys like it? And I LOVE the new step by step layering function. We are finally back home after a fun week and a half in RaChaCha.
