Enchilada Suizas

Lynn demonstrates how to make Enchilada Suizas.  This is a delicious chicken enchilada that uses the tomatillo salsa demonstrated in a previous upload.  You can use rotisserie chicken to make this a fast dinner.  From Everyday with Rachael Ray.


  • Tomatillo Salsa
  • 4 cups of roasted chicken
  • 7 Tablespoons Canola or vegetable oil
  • 10 small (6") corn tortillas
  • 6 ounces (1-1/2 cups) shredded Monterey jack cheese
  • 2 cups shredded romaine lettuce

Position rack in the upper third of the oven and preheat to 375°.  Spray a 9x13" baking dish with cooking spray.

Spread ½ cup of the salsa into a 9x13" baking dish.

In a bowl, mix the chicken with 1 cup of the salsa.  

In a small skillet, heat 7 Tablespoons of Canola or vegetable oil over medium-high heat.  Working with 1 tortilla at a time, submerge in the oil for a few seconds, then transfer to paper towels to drain, keeping the tortillas in a single layer.

Divide the chicken mixture among the tortillas, spooning about 1/3 cup in a line down the center of each.  Roll them up and line them in the prepared baking dish.  Pour the remaining 1 cup of salsa over the enchiladas.

Cover the dish with foil and bake until hot and golden, 20-25 minutes.  Uncover, sprinkle with the cheese and bake until the cheese is melted and the salsa is bubbling, about 5 minutes longer.

Serve with the lettuce and more sour cream.
