For the chicken
800 grams chicken breast
2 garlic cloves
2 teaspoons of oil
½ teaspoon salt
For the enchiladas
8 pieces corn tortilla (buy @ lamexikana.no)
0.5 litter sunflower oil
200 g grated cheese
0.5 litter of milk
1 box sour cream
1 litter green sauce (buy @ lamexikana.no)
*This recipe is fully suitable for coeliac.
For the enchilada mix
- Put the chicken in a pot with enough water with all the ingredients and let the chicken cook (you can decide low, medium or high heat depending of your time to prepare the dish).
- With 2 forks tear the chicken while warm (it will go faster) – the process is similar as for pulled pork. Set aside.
For the enchiladas
There can be several procedures for warming up the tortillas and for serving
- Set the oven in high temperature
- Warm up the tortillas in a pan
(Corn tortillas get easily dry if you see the tortilla is too dry put either a little bit of oil or some drops of water, just to moisture the tortilla enough so we can roll it in a flauta.
- Once you have all the tortillas and chicken ready, divide enough chicken mixture into tortillas and roll them together in an oven tray and put the cheese on top.
- If they cool off quickly set them in the oven in low temperature to keep them warm while you get everything else ready.
- Warm up the green sauce ready for serving and when you take the flautas out from the oven pour the green salsa on top.
- Mix the sour cream with the milk (it should be runny – like a sauce) and put the mixture on top of the enchiladas ready for serving
- Put enough oil in a fryer, frying pan or wok and heat it up at high temperature. When the oil is hot, carefully put a tortilla after the other and let them fry slightly just about a couple of minutes, they should not be hard just gilded!
- Once you have all the tortillas and chicken ready, divide the chicken mixture into tortillas and roll them together in a plate put grated cheese on top, then the warm salsa and the sour cream
Serve enchiladas with simple salad, rice, guacamole, totopos (tortilla chips –buy @lamexikana.no) and chili sauce.
