Green Chicken Enchiladas Recipe

Green Chicken Enchiladas
If you are looking for a delicious chicken enchiladas recipe with a homemade green sauce, this dish is perfect for you. In this recipe, shredded chicken is rolled in corn tortillas and then topped with a homemade green enchilada sauce, Mexican crema, and cheese. The green sauce is made from scratch and uses ingredients such as tomatillos, chili peppers, onion, garlic, and cilantro. Preparing the sauce does require a little bit of effort but it is so much better than using the canned stuff from the store. I like to serve these with rice on the side. Enjoy.
