    I'm Mexican and I'm going to tell you the secret to keep homemade enchiladas together... the secret is fat. If you pre cook tortillas in sesame oil fat, they will keep together when they are introduced in salsa. Keep cooking amigos :)

    I don’t know how she kept her tortillas from falling apart because mine definitely did. I’ve made enchiladas in the past so idk what went wrong here. I also added more spices to the chicken as it cooked, so the flavor was good. The sloppy mess was quiet the turn off though.

    I had cooked chicken already, so I spiced it up with Mexican seasoning. I caramelized a sweet onion to lay on top of the chicken and rolled up tightly. Only made a half an order because only had half the corn tortillas. Wished I could have made more. The caramelized onion made it delicious . Will definitely make again, oh spray the pan and put some sauce on the bottom. It’ll help getting out. So yummy! 2nd time making and stuck to the pan and turned into mush.Next time will toast over stove burner, then dip in salsa. And cook for less time. If that doesn’t work will use flour tortillas. Still tasty

    Delicious! I cooked the chicken breast with salsa in the crockpot all day then made the enchiladas for dinner.

    Wow, this had to be one of the easiest AND tastiest versions of enchiladas verdes I've ever tried...and I've tried many! My only suggestion is to add some flavor to your chicken mixture (I used Pampered Chef's Chile Lime Rub) before rolling it up with the verde sauce. Another thing - since this is a sort of "cheater" recipe, I think it pays to splurge on your sauce. Your tastebuds will thank you for it!
