Most enchiladas are dripping with cheese, but just a scattering of robust cotija is enough to satisfy.

  • Briefly run stack of tortillas under cold water, turning to lightly dampen. Wrap stack in a clean kitchen towel and microwave until pliable, 30 seconds. Fill each tortilla with about 3 tablespoons chicken, fold in half, and arrange in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish, overlapping slightly. Top with tomatillo mixture, cover with foil, and bake until bubbling, 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes before serving.

  • In a small bowl, whisk together sour cream and 2 tablespoons water. To serve, drizzle casserole with sour cream mixture and sprinkle with cheese and cilantro.

Martha Stewart is my go-to for recipes but this one was mediocre. But even more so, I don't know how anyone finishes prep for this meal in 35 minutes. I asked my husband to chop the tomatillos, jalapenos & onion this afternoon when I was at work & he had some free time. Even with that complete, it took me about an hour to put this together. Then, I spent 15 out of the 25 minutes it was in the oven making the sauce, chopping the cilantro & cheese & I also cut up an avocado. WAY too much prep time for this dish for something that isn't even that great. I won't be making it again.

Disappointing. Followed recipe exactly, but found it to be too tangy and not saucy enough. Will stick with my enchiladas suizas recipe.

Made this exactly according to the recipe and it was delicious. A huge hit at our house. We will definitely make this a part of our weekly rotations!
