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
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.
in a round casserole dish, layer the ingredients:
end with the salsa and cheese
bake in oven for 30 minutes, until melted and all bubbly and pretty.
top with avocado, radishes and more green onions.

Enjoy being at the beach. I’m currently in a cold beach, so I’m indoors working instead. And reading your posts too…
thank you sofia! it was a lovely week indeed. hopefully your beach time wasn’t spent indoors the entire time.
It wasn’t! I did swim in the freezing sea… And today I saw seals, I nearly died of excitement!
Gorgeous dinner, beautiful gif and photos! I love Mexican and this one is no different. Enjoy the beach!!!!
mexican is a cuisine that has very very very slowly grown on me and i am really enjoying myself with playing around with the various bright ingredients.
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.
they ate it but it probably wasn’t their favorite.
