Recipe Ingredients for chicken poblano enchilada casserole

1 cup cooked chicken
1 poblano peppers, roasted and chopped
1 yellow onion, chopped
1 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoons chili powder
1/2 cup monterey jack cheese, shredded
8 white corn tortillas
1/4 cup green onions, finely sliced

Recipe Directions for chicken poblano enchilada casserole

  1. To roast the peppers: Cut poblano peppers in half, remove all seeds and stem. Roast poblano peppers at 450 degrees until skin begins to blister and turn black in spots, this should take about 10-15 minutes. Place them in a plastic bag and seal. Let sit 5-10 minutes. The steam

  2. from inside will loosen the black skin. Pick what you can of the black parts off, then chop the peppers.

  3. Meanwhile, saute the chopped onion until soft. Combine the poblano, onion, chicken, cheese and filling seasonings in a bowl. Cut the corn tortillas in half.

  4. To make the sour cream enchilada sauce: Saute shallot, garlic and peppers in butter over medium heat in a large skillet until veggies soften. Add the sauce spices. Cook for another minute. Combine sour cream and flour well. Add to skillet along with chicken broth. Whisk to combine. (It'll look a little funny for a minute, but don't worry!) Bring mixture to just under a boil. Reduce heat, whisk and simmer until sauce is thick and creamy.

  5. Add 1/2 cup sauce to the chicken mixture and combine well.

  6. Coat the bottom of an 8x8 casserole dish with 1/2 cup of sauce. Layer approximately a third of the tortillas, then half the chicken mixture, and then 1/2 cup of sauce. Repeat layers. Then top with the remaining third portion of the tortillas, then 1/2 cup sauce and the green onions.

  7. Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes or until warm and bubbly!
