Green Chili Chicken Enchilada Stack

Green Chili Chicken Enchilada Stack

Green Chili Chicken Enchilada Stack with
sour cream and green salsa. Olé!

Serves – 2
Difficulty – So Easy a 2Year Old Could Make Them
Prep Time – 10-15 Minutes
Cook Time – 45 Minutes

4 LC Corn Tortillas (make these ahead)
1 to 1-1/4 serving Green Chili Pulled Chicken (yep, leftovers, indeed)
4 oz Colby Jack or Monterey Jack Cheese
Purple Onion to your preference (optional)

Sour Cream
Green Salsa

In 2 individual casseroles, place part of leftover Green Chili Pulled Chicken on the bottom of the casserole. Top with a little cheddar and place LC Corn Tortilla over it. Repeat layer order for the second layer. Place second LC Corn Tortilla on top of second layer. Top with a little Green Chili Pulled Chicken. Finish with cheese and onions as the last layer. (Onions are optional.)

Bake at 350° for 30-45 Minutes or until hot and bubbly all the way through. Remove from oven and top with your choice of sour cream, green salsa and avocado. Serve piping hot with a cold side salad made with homemade apple cider vinaigrette and avocado, cucumber, tomato, onion and mixed lettuce!

SusieT’s Notes:

This is four forks for sure. I don’t care what protein you make this green chili with – it rocks! It’s close to an 11 (cuz our amps go up to 11 – for all you Spinal Tap fans). Seriously. It hits on all levels. It’s Tex Mex. It’s cheesy, gooey, hot from the oven, hot from the peppers (but not heat bomb hot), and has a satisfying bulk to it.

For little effort, you walk away full to the bones but not gross full fealing like you sometimes feel after eating at a Mexican Restaurant - remember your BLC (Before Low Carb) Days? Ugggh. Blech!

Every time I make something like this, I shake my head in amazement. Can this really be diet food?

I mean, it’s a HUGE serving and including the sour cream and salsa, the Green Chili Chicken Enchilada Stack only has 514 calories? And it gives you a wallop of Vitamins A, C and Calcium??? I just find that amazing!?

Please try these. You won’t regret it.

And you will never look at leftovers the same way again. Leftovers should never LOOK like leftovers! Leftovers in our house are as stealthily disguised as...well, as stealthily disgued as the great wrestler, El Muy Chupacabre! Olé!
