Chicken Enchiladas Recipe
This Chicken Enchiladas recipe makes 6 chicken enchiladas.

What You Need
• 2 cups chicken, cooked and shredded
• 2 tablespoons olive oil
• 1 garlic clove, crushed
• 16 oz. tomato sauce
• 1/4 teaspoon salt
• 1/4 teaspoon sugar
• 1 jalapeno pepper
• 3 cups heavy cream
• 5 chicken bouillion cubes
• 1/3 cup olive oil
• 12 corn tortillas
• 1 1/2 cup Monterrey Jack cheese, grated
• 1 large onion, chopped

What To Do
1. Preheat oven to 350F. Chop jalapeno pepper and remove seeds (wash hands immediately; keep hands away from eyes when handling jalapeno seeds).

2. In a skillet, saute onion in oil until translucent; stir in garlic, tomato sauce, salt, sugar, shredded chicken and peppers. Cover and simmer 5 minutes.

3. Heat heavy cream in a large saucepan; add bouillion cubes and dissolve, then set aside.

4. In a small skillet, add 1/3 cup oil and heat, then dip each tortilla in hot oil, turning once, for a few seconds (tortillas should soften). Remove to paper towels to drain.

5. Now, let's put it all together. Dip tortillas in cream mixture, then place on flat surface and add 2-3 tablespoons of chicken mixture down the center of each; roll up tortillas. Place seam side down in 13x9 baking dish. Pour remaining cream mixture over enchiladas, then sprinkle grated cheese on top.

6. Bake 25-30 minutes, until cheese is melted and browned.
