Salsa Verde - a Tasty Green Sauce
Ready the shredded chicken. If you have refrigerated or frozen shredded chicken you are all set.
In a large skillet, sauté the garlic in oil until just fragrant. Then stir in the chicken, herbs and spices.
Next, combine the jar of salsa verde with the sour cream. Down the middle of each tortilla, spoon a portion of the chicken enchilada mixture and the shredded cheese.
Spoon the remaining green sauce over the top of the enchiladas and sprinkle the remaining cheese down the middle.
Bake for 30 to 35 minutes at 350 degrees until the top gets beautifully golden brown and that delicious cheese starts to bubble.
Sprinkle with some crumble cotija cheese and fresh cilantro, if you prefer, on top of the enchiladas verdes before serving. We also love to serve additional sour cream alongside.
