Bring on the Fiesta for Cinco de Mayo !!

Cinco de Mayo is a holiday that celebrates the victory of the Mexican army over France in the France-Mexican war that occurred in 1962. It’s also widely celebrated in the U.S. and in other countries.

Let us make your Cinco de Mayo Fiesta sizzle with a super easy, fun and delicious spread! Just don’t forget the chips, salsa, guacamole and ah ‘hem – the margs, of course!

 

Enchiladas with Buttermilk Brined Chicken

Ingredients:

  • Piedmont Kitchen Co. Buttermilk Brined Pulled Chicken
  • Salsa
  • Enchilada Sauce (make life easier and buy a big can)
  • Chopped onion
  • Cilantro to garnish
  • Tortillas (we prefer corn but flour works too)

  • Sour cream

Directions: 

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a bowl, combine pulled chicken, salsa, cilantro and chopped onion.
  • Mix the jack and cheddar cheese together in a second bowl.
  • Steam corn tortillas in the microwave for 30-45 seconds to make them soft and easier to work with so they don’t break.
  • Pour about a third of enchilada sauce in the bottom of a large baking dish.
  • Lay out tortillas flat and place a small handful of the cheese mixture in each tortilla, leaving about 1 cup for topping.
  • Evenly spread the shredded chicken among the tortillas. Then roll the tortillas up and place them in your baking dish. Evenly pour the remaining enchilada sauce on top of the enchiladas. Sprinkle top with remaining cheese.
  • Cover enchiladas with foil and bake in the oven for 25 minutes. Remove foil and cook for another 10-15 minutes until top is golden and bubbly.
  • Remove from oven and let cool. Sprinkle with chopped cilantro and a drizzle of sour cream. Enjoy!
