Salsa Verde Enchiladas

This cheesy Mexican casserole uses premade rotisserie chicken to fill the tortillas.


  • 1 rotisserie chicken
  • 1 (16- to 17.6-ounce) jar mild salsa verde
  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/8 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup (loosely packed) fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
  • 8 (6-inch) corn tortillas
  • 4 ounces reduced-fat sour cream
  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 4 ounces reduced-fat (2%) shredded Mexican cheese blend


  1. Remove meat from chicken and coarsely shred; place in medium bowl (you will need 2 3/4 cups; reserve any extra for use another day). Discard skin and bones. Stir 1/4 cup salsa verde into chicken to evenly coat.
  2. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 13 x 9-inch glass or ceramic baking dishes; set aside.
  3. In 12-inch skillet, heat remaining salsa verde, green onions and lime juice to boiling on medium-high. Boil for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in 1 tablespoon cilantro; keep warm over very low heat.
  4. With tongs, place 1 tortilla in salsa verde mixture; heat for 10 seconds. Place tortilla on wax paper; top with about 1/3 cup shredded-chicken mixture. Roll up tortilla and place, seam side down, in prepared baking dish. Repeat with remaining tortillas and chicken mixture, arranging 8 tortillas in dish.
  5. Stir sour cream and broth into remaining salsa verde mixture in skillet; spoon over filled tortillas. Cover baking dish with foil and bake for 15 minutes.
  6. Remove foil; sprinkle with 1 cup cheese and 1 tablespoon cilantro.
  7. Bake for 5 minutes longer or until cheese melts.
