Chicken Enchiladas Suisas

…Continuing our little mini-series of Comfort Foods that are also very FREEZER FRIENDLY… and feel like this is same song, second verse…this is another favorite recipe that I have had for over 30 years.  A little gal, Melody Connor was in our “Newly Married” Sunday School class and served it to us for dinner at their house.  Of course, even back then, I was never shy about asking for a good recipe when I taste something delicious!

Gather the goodies...

Start by gathering up the ingredients…looks like a big mess here… 🙂 We were making about 8 recipes at the same time!  I just love it when we’ve got a hundred things going!  Living out in the country if you forget an ingredient, you just have to start substituting.  Sometimes, it turns out to be a whole other dish!

Rotisserie Chicken

We started out with a rotisserie chicken, but you can use any cooked style chicken that you like.  This chicken was relatively small, so we used the whole chicken. Just remove the skin, debone and tear into bite sized pieces.

This recipe was featured in Adrian's "Between Friends" Cookbook

Mix chicken with green chilies, sour cream & cumin.  Place about 1/4-1/3 cup of chicken mixture on each of the tortillas and roll up. Mix up sauce and pour over the top of the rolled tortillas.  Top with some shredded (sharp) cheddar cheese. Now you can either wrap tightly and place in your freezer, or bake them right away to serve for dinner!

This is a great dish to serve to a crowd!  We have served these enchiladas a couple of times at Adrians during different special events.  They are not too spicy, or too messy, so most everyone seems to like them. At the store, we cut these into halves or thirds because they really do make a large enchilada. Serve with some great crunchy tortilla chips, Mexican rice, a nice salad and don’t forget a little (or A LOT) of homemade guacamole on the side!

Filling the Freezer with Comfort Foods

The staff makes fun of me, because I always seem to have a “story” behind these recipes…”Served at my great grand-pappy’s second cousin’s funeral…etc. etc” 🙂 … Let me say that I just can’t help it!  🙂  I always tend to go to my tried & true recipes from my old, old recipe box first!
