The salsa verde in this recipe brings the bright flavor of tomatillo to make these cheesy enchiladas stand out from the rest!


  • 1 jar (16 ounces) Pace® Salsa Verde
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar Jack cheese (about 6 ounces)
  • 8 corn tortilla or flour tortillas (6-inch), warmed


  • Tips

    • Time Saving Tip: You can substitute 2 cans (12.5 ounces each) Swanson® Premium White Chunk Chicken Breast in Water, drained, for the 1 1/2 cups cooked chicken.
  • Step 1

    Set the oven to 375°F.  Spread 1/2 cup salsa in an 11x8x2-inch baking dish.

  • Step 2

    Stir 1/4 cup salsa, chicken, sour cream and 1/2 cup cheese in a medium bowl. Spoon about 3 tablespoons chicken mixture down the center of each tortilla.  Roll up the tortillas around the filling and place seam-side down in the baking dish. Top with the remaining salsa.

  • Step 3

    Bake for 15 minutes. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese.

  • Step 4

    Bake for 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted.

    When cooing the chicken for this recipe we like to put it in a slow cooker with a taco seasoning. The seasoning gives it extres flavor and the skos cooker makes it easy to shred.

    Good day, this recipe is a must try. I enjoyed eating this meal. I think this recipe has too much cheese however I enjoyed every bite. This was my first time trying Salsa Verde medium heat and the flavoring wasn’t too hot the taste was just right. Please enjoy with your family. I hope many people try this recipe you’ll enjoy every bite. Yours truly Missy Lamb.
