Salsa Verde Enchiladas



Ingredients

2 rotisserie chickens
2 jar(s) (16- to 17.6-ounce) mild salsa verde
6 green onions, thinly sliced
1/4 cup(s) fresh lime juice
1/2 cup(s)  fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
16 (6-inch) corn tortillas
1 container(s) (8-ounce) sour cream
1/2 cup(s) reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 package(s) (8-ounce) shredded Mexican cheese blend
Directions

Remove meat from chickens and coarsely shred; place in medium bowl (you will need 5 1/2 cups; reserve any extra for use another day). Discard skin and bones. Stir 1/2 cup salsa verde into chicken to evenly coat.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease two 13" by 9" glass or ceramic baking dishes; set aside. In 12-inch skillet, heat remaining salsa verde, green onions, and lime juice to boiling on medium-high. Boil 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in 2 tablespoons cilantro; keep warm over very low heat.

With tongs, place 1 tortilla in salsa verde mixture; heat 10 seconds. Place tortilla on waxed paper; top with about 1/3 cup shredded-chicken mixture. Roll up tortilla and place, seam side down, in prepared baking dish. Repeat with remaining tortillas and chicken mixture, arranging 8 tortillas in each dish.

Stir sour cream and broth into remaining salsa verde mixture in skillet; spoon over filled tortillas. Cover baking dish with foil and bake 15 minutes. Remove foil; sprinkle with 1 cup cheese and 1 tablespoon cilantro. Bake 5 minutes longer or until cheese melts.
