Ingredients

For the Chicken:

  • 3 cups shredded chicken I use rotisserie
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 cup salsa verde

For the Enchiladas:

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 and lightly grease a 9x13 baking dish. 
  • In a large bowl, combine the shredded chicken, paprika, black pepper, cumin, dried oregano and salsa verde. Toss chicken to evenly coat. 
  • Place tortillas on a plate and heat in microwave for 15 seconds. This will soften them up just a bit so they are easier to roll. 
  • Add a small amount of chicken to one end of the tortilla (about 2 tbsp). Gently roll the tortilla and place it seam side down into the prepared baking dish. Continue rolling until all tortillas are filled and placed in the baking dish. 
  • In a small bowl, combine 3/4 cup salsa verde and the cashew queso. Evenly pour the queso mixture over the enchiladas and using a rubber spatula, spread to evenly coat.
  • Cover baking dish with foil, being careful that it is not touching the enchiladas. Bake, covered, for 25 minutes, until the enchiladas are hot all the way through and bubbly.
  • Remove aluminum foil and top with cilantro and red onion for serving.
