Enchiladas Suisse- Carnival Entry
And just to show you how much I support my one and only Blog Daughter, here is MY entry. One is the regular recipe and the other is how I have modified it to make it more low fat.
You may substitute Monterey Jack for Swiss. Also, if you have kids, you may want to leave out the green chilies. I love it with them in, but it does add a kick that my kids do not enjoy. Also I do cut this recipe in half since it serves 8-10.
1 onion, chopped
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
1 clove garlic, crushed
2 cups of tomato puree
1 4 oz can chopped green chilies, drained
2-3 cups chopped, cooked chicken
Salt to taste
3 cups of whipping cream (My modification uses skim milk)
6 chicken bouillon cubes
8-10 6-inch flour or corn tortillas (I only use flour)
¾ lb swiss cheese grated
Saute onion in oil until soft. Add garlic, tomato puree, chilies and chicken. Season with salt and simmer 10 minutes.
Heat 3 cups of cream and dissolve bouillon cubes in cream.
Fry tortillas in a small amount of oil until soft; not crisp. Dip each tortilla in cream mixture; fill each with about ¼ cup chicken mixture. Roll up tortillas and place seam-side down in a 13x9x2 inch pan. Pour remaining cream mixture over tortillas and sprinkle with grated cheese. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
Makes 8-10 servings.
For less fat method: I don’t bother to fry the tortillas. I nuke them like I do for fajitas, just enough to get them soft and then proceed using skim milk instead of cream.
