Green Sauce Enchiladas


  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup white rice
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can chicken broth
  • 3boneless chicken breast halves, boiled and cubed
  • 1 pound Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 (11 ounce) can sweet corn, drained
  • 1 (24 ounce) jar green enchilada sauce
  • 24 (6 inch) corn tortillas
  • Directions

  • Step 1

    In a large skillet, saute rice with butter or margarine. Add chicken broth and simmer over low heat for 15 to 20 minutes, or until rice is cooked and tender. Let cool.


  • Step 2

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Step 3

    Cube 3/4 pound of the cheese; shred the remaining 1/4 pound cheese and set aside. Combine chicken, 3/4 pound cubed cheese, corn, cooled rice and 1/4 cup sauce in a large bowl. Mix together. Warm tortillas in the microwave for 2 minutes and spread another 1/4 cup sauce in the bottom of a 9×13 inch baking dish.

  • Step 4

    Place a little of the chicken mixture on each tortilla and roll up. Place filled tortillas (as many as will fit) in the baking dish. Sprinkle with 1/4 pound shredded cheese and top with any remaining sauce, pouring evenly over all. (Freeze remaining tortillas for future green sauce enchiladas!)

  • Step 5

    Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 minutes.
