Ingredients

  • Bell & Evans Organic Boneless, Skinless Chicken Thighs
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 TB Olive oil
  • 1 medium Yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 (10-oz) cans Red enchilada sauce, divided
  • 1 cup Shredded cheddar cheese
  • 12 (6-inch) Corn tortillas
  • 1 cup Crumbled queso fresco
  • 1 cup Sour cream
  • 2 Avocados, halved, pitted and sliced
  • 1/4 cup Chopped fresh cilantro
  • 4 Radishes, thinly sliced
  • 3 Limes, cut into wedges

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Season chicken with salt. Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Place chicken in hot skillet and cook, without moving, until golden-brown, about 4-5 minutes. Flip chicken over and continue to cook for 4-5 minutes, until golden-brown. Add onion and 1 can of enchilada sauce. Cover and simmer on medium-low heat until chicken is fully cooked, or until internal temperature reaches 165°F, about 7-10 minutes. Transfer chicken, sauce and cheddar to a large bowl. Using 2 forks, shred chicken into small, bite-size pieces and mix to combine.
  2. Cover bottom of a 9x13-inch baking dish with 1/2 cup enchilada sauce. Spoon shredded chicken mixture down center of each tortilla. Roll up each tortilla and place into the prepared baking dish, seam-side-down, nestling each one against the last. Pour remaining enchilada sauce over top of rolled tortillas.
  3. Bake until sauce bubbles, about 10-15 minutes. Top with queso fresco, a few dollops of sour cream, avocado, cilantro and radishes. Serve with lime wedges and enjoy.
