Ingredients
  • 6 Tbsp Chilli Powder
  • 3 Tbsp Masa Harina
  • 1 tsp Cumin
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 2-3 Cups Water (Adjust as necessary to desired thickness)
  • 1 Can (14oz) Tomato Sauce
  • 1 Rotisserie Chicken (de-boned and chicken shredded)
  • 1 Bunch Cilantro, washed and finely chopped, (reserve a handful for the topping)
  • 1 Pkg Queso Fresco, crumbled
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 4 Cups (approximately) Shredded Cheese (reserve at least 1 cup aside for the topping)
  • Stack of Corn Tortillas
  • Toppings: Sour Cream, Limes, Guacamole, Salsa
Instructions
  1. Combine the first 7 ingredients in a saucepan over the stove. Bring up to a boil and simmer until it reaches desired thickness/consistency. Should be a fairly thick sauce – not too runny. But if it comes out too thick, don’t be afraid to add a touch of water.
  2. While the Enchilada sauce simmers and reduces, combine the filling ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Set aside.
  3. Once the sauce is ready, set aside. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Spray an 11×14 baking sheet with non-stick spray and get the filling ingredients, sauce, tortillas, and toppings (cheese and cilantro) in an assembling station nearby. Start by warming the tortillas in a wet tea towel in the microwave in small bunches so they become pliable and warm. Start by placing a ladle (or two) of the Enchilada sauce onto the baking sheet – just a very thin layer. Then add a couple of tablespoons of the filling into each of the tortillas, roll up and place them seam side down on the sprayed baking sheet. Do this until you run out of filling. Then pour the enchilada sauce down over the stuffed tortillas, sprinkle with remaining cheese (adding more if you’d like ) and cilantro.
  4. Place in the oven at 400 degrees for 30-45 minutes. This is really till it reaches your desired doneness, making sure you have baked it through and all cheeses have melted.
