This easy recipe turns 2 chicken breasts into enough to feed a family of four. I like it because you can use raw chicken breasts or leftover chicken. It’s really good if you have leftover grilled chicken, too. It’s mild enough the kids will eat it, yet has enough flavor to satisfy the adults, too. If you want it hotter, just add jalapeños to the meat while you’re cooking it. My secret ingredient is just a splash or two of mesquite smoke flavoring added to the chicken. For just my husband and I, I divide this into two square baking pans and freeze one. Be sure to let it thaw in the frig the day you plan on baking it. If you put it directly in the oven from the freezer, you’d probably end up with petrified tortillas on the bottom.
1 10.75 oz can cream of chicken soup
16 oz sour cream
¼ teaspoon cumin
¼ teaspoon cilantro leaf
½ teaspoon garlic, minced
Dash cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 chicken breasts, chopped in ¼” – ½” cubes
1 medium onion, chopped
1 tablespoon mesquite liquid smoke
½ tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon garlic, minced
½ teaspoon cilantro leaf
¼ teaspoon cumin
¼ teaspoon salt
1 4 oz can green chili peppers,
chopped or diced
10 soft taco size flour tortillas
10 cheddar cheese slices or about 2½ cups shredded cheddar
½ cup cheddar cheese, shredded
Preheat oven to 350. Combine 1st six ingredients in 1 qt. bowl. Set aside.
Heat oil in frying pan over medium heat. Add chicken. Saute a few minutes. Add onion, chili powder, garlic, cilantro, cumin and salt. Continue cooking until onion is tender and chicken is cooked. Add green chilis. Cook and stir until heated through.
Lightly grease the baking pan. Thinly spread about ½ cup of the soup mixture in 13x9x2 baking pan. Place cheese slices or shredded cheese on tortillas. Spoon 2-3 tablespoons of the meat mixture on each tortilla. Roll up tortillas and place, seam-side down, in the baking dish. Spoon remaining soup mixture on top and sprinkle with ½ cup shredded cheese.
Cover with tin foil. Bake 30 minutes. Remove foil, continue baking until bubbly and lightly browned.
