Green Sauce Enchiladas

sauce, chicken breast, corn tortillas, cheese, broth, corn, rice, butter

Green Sauce Enchiladas -


1 tablespoon butter
1 cup white rice
1 (14.5 ounce) can chicken broth
3 boneless chicken breast halves, boiled and cubed
1 pound Monterey Jack cheese
1 (11 ounce) can sweet corn, drained
1 (24 ounce) jar green enchilada sauce
24 (6 inch) corn tortillas

Directions for Green Sauce Enchiladas Recipe

In a large skillet, saute rice with butter or margarine. Add chicken broth and simmer over low heat for 15 to 20 minutes, or until rice is cooked and tender. Let cool.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Cube 3/4 pound of the cheese; shred the remaining 1/4 pound cheese and set aside. Combine chicken, 3/4 pound cubed cheese, corn, cooled rice and 1/4 cup sauce in a large bowl. Mix together. Warm tortillas in the microwave for 2 minutes and spread another 1/4 cup sauce in the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish.
Place a little of the chicken mixture on each tortilla and roll up. Place filled tortillas (as many as will fit) in the baking dish. Sprinkle with 1/4 pound shredded cheese and top with any remaining sauce, pouring evenly over all. (Freeze remaining tortillas for future green sauce enchiladas!)
Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 minutes.
