Here is another great idea for changing up your chicken surplus. It is a recipe for Classic Chicken Enchiladas that really hit’s the spot.  Mexican food is a favorite for most people, but making your own Mexican dishes can really become a favorite night for the whole family.

What makes it great is that you can make the dish your own by putting more of your favorites ingredients in and leaving out or putting less of your not so favorite ones. This recipe is the perfect one to experiment with! My family loves cheese, so the cheesier the better!

It’s fun for the whole family to join in putting these enchiladas together, and best of all, everyone can make them their own. Just remember to keep track of which one is which.  Make these enchiladas and I guarantee you will make them again and again on your family’s requests.

Here’s what you need:

3 cups (1 1/2-pounds) from a whole, cooked chicken (chicken broth may be reserved from boiling meat)
12-ounces pre-shredded sharp cheddar and Monterey Jack cheeses
4 tomatillos, husked and finely chopped
1 medium Anaheim green chile, seeded and chopped
2 small jalapeño chiles, seeded and chopped
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
12, 6-inch soft corn tortillas
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium onion, minced
3 medium garlic cloves, minced
2 teaspoons cumin
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup chicken broth
