Spicy Avocado Chicken Enchiladas & Giveaway!*


Cinco de Mayo is always one of my favorite holidays. Growing up Cinco De Mayo was a guaranteed good time with more drinks than one should have on a Tuesday. Keep in mind, I lived in Texas -which is like 50% Mexican & 25% cows- so it was almost impossible to avoid one of the 500 parties on that day. Even my friends who were Cuban or Puerto Rican would wear the Mexican flag’s colors and get down for Cinco De Mayo.

Then I moved to Florida…and some of the local “authentic Mexican” restaurants will have drink specials and maybe one person will be wearing one of those gaudy flashing shot glass necklaces. So instead, Jorge (the Puerto Rican) and Jessica (the white girl) pretend to be Mexican and have a big feast…and one too many Tequila drinks. :-)

Just in case these Spicy Avocado Chicken Enchiladas aren’t calling your name, I have rounded up some of my other favorites for you to celebrate with:

Cinco de Mayo: Let's Celebrate!


Buffalo Chicken Enchiladas
AppleJack SangriaSalsa Verde Chicken Tacos
Green Chicken Chili TamalesVegetable EnchiladasBlackened Fish Tacos

But you really should give these Spicy Avocado Chicken Enchiladas a chance…they are seriously one of my favorites! The sauce has a divine slow heat from the serrano pepper and a creamy texture from the sour cream. I really do love that sauce, but the best part has to be the bites of warm avocado inside the enchiladas!  If you pick up a rotisserie chicken for the meat, these enchiladas come together extremely fast and will go perfectly with your celebratory margarita!

I made these enchiladas with some of my favorite Cabot.

Spicy Avocado Chicken Enchiladas

Yield: serves 4

Recipe Note: To make these as Spicy as their name, leave in the seeds in the Serrano Pepper and use a "medium" Salsa Verde. For those without the love of heat, seed the Serrano Pepper and use a "mild" Salsa Verde.

Ingredients:

for the sauce:
1 tablespoon butter
1 Serrano pepper, minced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tbsp flour
1 cup chicken stock
1 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1 cup medium salsa verde
1/2 cup fat free sour cream

for the enchiladas:
3 cups chopped cooked chicken breasts (about 4 breasts)
8 oz Cabot Monterrey Jack Cheese, shredded & divided
1 small yellow onion, chopped
3 avocados, peeled and chopped
8-10 flour tortillas

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375°F.

In a medium sauce pan, melt butter over medium-high heat. Saute serrano pepper and garlic, for 1 minute. Stir in flour, constantly stirring, and cook for 2 minutes. Whisk in the chicken broth, cumin, salt and pepper and bring to a low boil. Once boiling, whisk in the sour cream, salsa verde and cilantro. Remove from heat.

Spray/grease a 9×13 baking dish. Add 3/4 cup sauce to the bottom of the pan. Add chicken, Cabot Monterrey Jack Cheese, onion and avocado to the center of each tortilla and roll, placing seam-side down in the dish. Pour the remaining sauce over the enchiladas. Top with leftover cheese and bake for 15-20 minutes or until bubbling. Serve immediately.

Disclosure: I received some delicious Cabot cheeses, but I was not compensated to write this post. I just really love Cabot, their motto and their cheese! This post contains affiliate links.

    You always make such awesome enchiladas. I tried that buffalo chicken enchilada dish of yours and it was fabulous so I have no doubt that this would be just as amazing!

    Now for the giveaway question. I’ll have to choose both Cabot Private Stock Cheddar and the shot of tequila! :)

    mmm, it would be hard to choose between the tequila + the cheese. i’ve made some less-than-stellar decisions while tequila-ing, though, while i only seem to make excellent decisions when indulging in cheese. so the cheese gets my vote!

    I am a sucker for cheese… I hate that I just admitted that, but I would totally take the cheese. I’d do the shot of tequila too, but the cheese would go first.

    I made this tonight (ugh, sooooo yummy)! I have a housewarming party to go to and was wondering if this could be semi-made ahead and froze for a later time? Or would it be totally gross? Any affect on cook time? Thoughts????

    • Jessica replied: — May 16th, 2012 @ 10:23 am

      I am so glad! We LOVED these!

      I am not sure about the freezing aspect. I wonder what it would do to texture and to the avocado?

      I have made these ahead of time, like 12 hours ahead, and popped them in the fridge until later that evening. …If you try freezing them though, you have to come back and let me know how it goes! :)

    These were delicious, but we ended up with a bunch of leftover filling (maybe I wasn’t stuffing my enchiladas enough). Next time, I would only use 2 cups of chicken and 2 avocados.

    Erin @ The Spiffy Cookie — May 22, 2012 @ 7:27 pm

    Just made these. But got to the end of the recipe and realized that I did not save any extra cheese for the topping! Unfortunately in the directions it does not mention how much to reserve for topping while stuffing it inside the tortillas. Just thought I’d let you know to fix so that others won’t be confused.

    I was a little skeptical about cooking avocados, I have never had one warm before. These were sooooo good! I will definately make them again. I may cut down the recipe a little next time though because I didn’t care for them as leftovers, something about reheated brown avocados the next day was a turn off.

    I really liked these — that sauce is the bomb.com! I did end up with about twice as much filling as I needed, though, and I filled the tortillas fairly full. When I make these again, I will either make only half the filling or buy twice as many tortillas and make a pan to freeze. The only other complaint was from my husband, who would have preferred that the onions were sauteed before they were added to the filling (they were still a bit crunchy coming out of the oven).

      Glad to hear you were still able to make them, but yes it is a totally different flavor. If you can find Tomatillos, you can also make your own!

    I took these over to a friend’s and they were a hit. Seriously, the sauce is out of this world! I thought I needed to double the recipe and didnt realize how much it would make until the sauce was complete. But then I ended up using all the sauce. Is that weird? It was the perfect amount so…hmmm. Also, I marinated chicken with one of those packets, pan grilled them to perfection, cooled them slightly then shredded with my hands. The crispy fried edges from the chicken added a deeper flavor overall. I was worried that the onions wouldnt cook but I sliced them super thin and they were perfect. I’m making this my go-yto enchilada recipe. Thank you!!!

      I think it would be great in the freezer. I haven’t tried it myself, but I can’t imagine it not working. The color on the avocado might change, but it will be wrapped in tortillas so you wouldn’t see it anyways!
