Mexican Green Enchiladas

A very delicious way to start or finish the day.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. To make the sauce; boil green tomatoes, when ready put it on the blender with salt, onion, a little garlic clove, half of the cilantro and the 2 green chilies (only 1 if you don't want it hot), blend for a few seconds.
  2. In other pan add the remaining oil and heat it on high, paying attention not to burn it.
  3. Next put the corn tortillas in one by one until they inflate, then add to the green sauce pan and cover up.
  4. Place it on a plate and fill it with the chicken, closing it to make a taco. Make up another enchilada and add it to the plate.
  5. Cover with 2 or 3 tablespoons of the green sauce, 2 tablespoons of sour cream, cheese, chopped onion and cilantro.

my apologies, I did not see the facts on the side. Still high in fat and carbs for one serving.

Another good option to frying the tortillas is to spray them lightly w/cooking spray, put them on a cooksheet and throw them in the oven for a couple minutes (since the oven is preheating anyway). I understand that they hold up better by frying, but to me that's not important as the taste which is good either fried OR heating them in the oven.

This is very good but you can always steam (using a zip steam bag) the corn tortillas in the microwave instead of frying them.
