2 Tbsp Butter

2 ½ Cups Cooked Chicken, shredded

Serve with beans and rice! And we like to eat it with some Caesar Salad as well. Enjoy!

My very picky wife ate these and went back for more! I liked the chili taste of the enchiladas, rather than a sauce smothering them. I have made enchiladas many times and by far and away, these were among the best I have made. The green and red chili wasn’t something I thought would work for this dish, but the MADE the dish!

Is this the sauce that ABUELA’S in Peoria AZ uses? Abuela’s is our favorite place to eat in AZ. We take all of our guests there when we’re there during the winter months. Thank you.

Received my “care package”.
Trying the newest recipes soon.
The Hatch chile flavor reminds of a dear friend who was taken by cancer. We fought at same time. I won. She decided to not fight as her body was too ravaged by disease. Her choice, passed at home.
Dee W. was from Riuodoso, New Mexico.
She would share chile roasts with me and the feast afterward
The flavor of the Hatch green brings those good times back with the first taste.
Have a Happy and Safe 4th.
As a RN, I ask that you follow the CDC guidelines. This virus is brutal. Keep your loved ones safe with social distancing, good handwashing.
