I love chicken enchiladas with salsa verde (green sauce), but ordering at restaurants can be difficult to determine if it is gluten-free. The restaurants may dip the corn tortillas in the same oil that the flour tortillas are at the restaurant, thus creating a cross-contamination risk. In addition, wheat flour could be used in the sauce or in the chicken broth used to prepare the chicken and sauce.
Well, here’s a recipe you can make at home that is just as good as you can get in a restaurant, or perhaps better! It does take some time to make it, but it isn’t difficult and it’s so worth it! My dad makes the original recipe and always gets rave reviews. I’ve modified it slightly to make it a little easier on me and adjust the flavor to my liking, but the original recipe comes from El Paso Chile Company’s Texas Border Cookbook .
2 (4 oz.) cans chopped green chiles
2 1/2 tsp salt
1 lb. tomatillos (about 5 or 6 six large)
1 medium onion, finely chopped (about 3/4 cup)
2 fresh jalapenos, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 Cup chicken broth (Make sure it’s gluten-free.)
2 TBSP olive oil
1 1/2 Cups corn oil
12, 6-inch corn tortillas
4 cups chicken, cooked and shredded (Try Slow-Cooked Mexican Chicken .)
12 oz. shredded cheese (about 3 Cups) Cheddar, Monterey Jack, or combination
Diane at The W.H.O.L.E. Gang  is doing a round-up of garlic recipes this week for Friday Foodie Fix . She has a lot of good information on different types of garlic. And, I’m sure there will be lots of garlic recipes to review. Although this recipe doesn’t have a lot of garlic in it, it wouldn’t be the same without it.
