Combine the chicken and enchilada sauce in a medium saucepan & simmer for 10-15 minutes over medium-low heat. Then flip the chicken over, cover, and cook for an additional 10-15 minutes until the chicken reaches 160-165 degrees with an instant-read thermometer.

1

Remove chicken from pan and shred into bite-sized pieces. In a bowl, combine shredded chicken, the remaining enchilada sauce, queso fresco, chiles, and cilantro. Add salt and pepper if desired.

2

Spray a square casserole dish with olive oil (or use a brush) and coat the entire bottom and sides. Evenly spread 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese on the bottom of the dish. Add the chicken mixture.

3

Then add the other cup of cheddar cheese on top. Cover with foil and bake for about 10 minutes.

4

Remove foil to melt and brown cheese a bit for another 3 to 5 min. and voila. Mexican enchiladas of the day! Be careful when removing from the oven.

5

Now slice some avocados, green onions, and chopped cilantro to garnish.

Cooking Tips

If you're busy in the evenings and want to just pop a delicious recipe in the oven when you don't have time to prepare a meal, you could easily prepare this 1 day in advance and store it covered in the fridge, ready for baking.

01

For better texture, buy the block of cheddar cheese rather than pre-shredded cheese.
