chicken enchiladas in tomatillo cream sauce

Recipe Ingredients for Enchiladas suizas

1 pound tomatillos
2 jalapeno peppers
2 cloves garlic
1/4 cup cilantro leaves
1 tablespoon oil
1/4 cup sour cream
8 medium corn tortillas
12 oz shredded chicken
1/2 cup cheddar cheese

Recipe Directions for Enchiladas suizas

  1. Place the tomatillos and chiles in a saucepan with water to cover. Bring to a boil and cook until the tomatillos are tender. Drain and reserve cup cooking liquid.

  2. Put the tomatillos, chiles, garlic, cilantro and reserved liquid in a blender and puree until smooth.

  3. Heat the oil in the saucepan in which the tomatillos and chiles were cooked, add the puree in a slow stream, and cooked over medium heat for 10 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in cream and add salt to taste.

  4. Heat oil as necessary to soften tortillas, first on one side until it puffs up, then on the other. Tortillas should remain pliable. Drain on paper towels.

  5. Dip each tortilla in sauce, fill with chicken, and return to the skillet in which the tortillas were softened. Spoon any remaining sauce over the enchiladas, sprinkle cheese on top, cover and heat briefly, just long enough for the cheese to melt. Do not overheat or the tortillas will become soggy.
