Enchiladas Verdes

Enchiladas Verdes is my favorite dish at my favorite Mexican restaurant back in my hometown. Living eight hours away, I don't get to eat there very often so I have to whip up my own version every once in awhile. They are enchiladas made with salsa verde (green salsa) which is mild but has lots of flavor. It is a nice change from the regular old enchiladas.
Enchiladas Verdes

3 cups Shredded Cooked Chicken
1 cup Sour Cream, divided
1 Red Bell Pepper, chopped
1 can (4.5oz) Chopped Green Chilies
2 cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese, divided
1 1/2 teaspoon Minced Garlic
1 teaspoon Ground Cumin
1 jar (16oz) Salsa Verde (green salsa)
1/2 cup Water
1 package 6-inch Flour Tortillas
Shredded Lettuce
Additional Sour Cream


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
Puree salsa, water and 1/2 cup sour cream in a blender. Spread 1 cup of the mixture over bottom of prepared baking dish.
In a large bowl, mix chicken, 1/2 cup sour cream, red pepper, green chilies, 1 cup cheese, garlic and cumin.
Spoon 1/3 cup of chicken mixture down center of each tortilla. Roll up and place seam side down on sauce in baking dish.
Pour remaining sauce over enchiladas; bake uncovered 35 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and bake 15 minutes longer until bubbly.
Serve topped with shredded lettuce and sour cream, if desired.
