Chipotle Chicken Enchiladas
The word Enchilada, simply means “in chile”. These Chipotle Chicken Enchiladas are definitely on point for that. The chipotle and green chiles give this dish a distinctly Mexican flavour that I totally love. These enchiladas do have a little spice, being that this is Mexican food, after all, but they aren’t intolerable for those who are spice phobic, either.
Corn tortillas dipped in enchilada sauce, then rolled around a delicious filling of shredded chicken, tomato and chiles and topped with cheese and sauce before baking are a wonderful and pretty simple comfort dish.
It’s important to use corn, and not flour tortillas in this recipe. The corn tortilla is a little harder to roll up, but it gives just the right texture and flavour for true enchiladas. These chipotle chicken enchiladas are really great to do if you have leftover chicken breasts.
Serve with rice and beans or a salad.
