- Place 1 cup of de Herdez "Mexican Cooking Salsa Verde, Mexican Cream, cilantro and garlic clove in a blender, process until you have a smooth sauce. Mix with the rest of the Herdez salsa verde and set aside.
- Heat a skillet over medium heat; warm one tablespoon of oil and warm the tortillas one at a time to soften, giving it just a few seconds per side. Add the rest of the oil as needed. Besides softening them for easy rolling, another reason is that we do this is to keep the tortillas from breaking. Transfer onto a plate covered with paper towels to drain any excess oil. Preheat your oven to 350°F.
- Season the chicken with salt and pepper. You can also add garlic powder if you like.
- Spread 1/3 of the sauce in a greased 9″ X 12" baking dish. Or individual oven-proof plates, if you prefer.
- Fill the center of each tortilla with the chicken and roll it up.
- Arrange the enchiladas in 1 layer, seam side down.
- Cover with the rest of sauce; sprinkle with cheese. Bake 25-30 minutes or until cheese starts to brown. Serve immediately and garnish with onion slices.

A creamy, cheesy, comfort-food take on enchiladas. The name of this dish means "Swiss enchiladas," not because it's a Swiss recipe but because of the generous use of dairy as compared to the more traditional Enchiladas Rojas.

- Place chicken in a medium saucepan and add enough water to cover by at least 2 inches. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and cook until just cooked through, about 8 minutes. Remove from water; transfer to a plate. When cool enough to handle, shred into bite size pieces. You should have about 3 cups.
- Meanwhile, preheat oven to broil with a rack in the position closest to the heating element. Arrange tomatillos, poblano, onion wedges, garlic, and jalapeno in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Broil, flipping once halfway through, until blackened in places and beginning to soften, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a blender; add cilantro, sour cream, 3/4 cup water, lime juice, and salt and puree until smooth.
- Turn oven to 350 degrees. Spread 1 cup enchilada sauce evenly over the bottom of an 8-by-12-inch baking dish. In a medium bowl, toss chicken with 1 cup enchilada sauce. Place about 1/3 cup of chicken in the center of each tortilla. Roll up tortillas to enclose filling. Arrange enchiladas in a single layer in prepared baking dish, seam-side down. Pour remaining enchilada sauce over the top, then sprinkle evenly with cheese.
- Bake until cheese is melted and sauce is bubbling, about 30 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes. Serve with cilantro leaves, chopped onion, and sliced jalapeno.
- Prepare salsa verde: Melt butter in saucepan over medium heat. Saute the onion until soft. Stir in the flour. Add the broth, then add the chiles, garlic, salt, and cumin. Simmer about 15 minutes to blend flavors, then set aside. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C.)
- In a heavy skillet, lightly fry tortillas in shallow oil, being careful not to make them too crisp to roll. Combine the cheeses and keep 1/2 cup aside for topping. Dip each tortilla in salsa verde (both sides.) Place 2 heaping tablespoons chicken and about 2 tablespoons cheese down the center of each; roll and place seam side down in a shallow dish.
- After all the rolled tortillas are in the dish, spoon additional salsa verde over them and then cover evenly with heavy cream. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup cheese mixture, and with the green onions.
- Bake uncovered in preheated oven for 20 minutes. Serve immediately, garnished with the olives, cherry tomatoes, and with additional salsa on the side.

CHICKEN ENCHILADAS SUIZAS
Enchiladas suizas differ from typical enchiladas because they contain Mexican crema or sour cream in addition to salsa verde. This version replaces the tomatillo sauce with a roasted tomato-chile sauce, resulting in a rich, creamy dish with bright color.

- Put the chicken in a medium pot with 3 cups water, the broth, garlic, bay leaves and cilantro; season with salt. Cover and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to medium low and gently simmer, turning the chicken as needed, until cooked through, about 30 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a plate to cool. Discard the bay leaves and cilantro and reserve the broth and garlic. Meanwhile, preheat the broiler. Put the tomatoes and chiles on a foil-lined baking sheet and broil, turning, until charred, about 12 minutes. Wrap in the foil to catch any juices, then cool slightly. Peel the chiles and transfer to a blender with the tomatoes and collected juices. Remove the garlic from the broth, add to the blender and puree until smooth. Heat 2 tablespoons vegetable oil in a pot over medium heat. Add the diced onion and cook, stirring, until golden, about 3 minutes. Increase the heat to medium high and stir in the tomato-chile puree and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cook, stirring, until the sauce is thick, about 15 minutes. Stir in 3 cups of the reserved broth and bring to a simmer. Partially cover and cook about 20 minutes. Add 1 teaspoon salt; keep the sauce warm. Discard the chicken skin and shred the meat. Toss the chicken with the crema and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a bowl. Soak the sliced onion in a bowl of cold water while you prepare the enchiladas. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Spread 1 cup of the tomato-chile sauce in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Heat 1/2 cup vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Fry a tortilla until puffed, about 15 seconds per side, turning with tongs. Quickly spoon 2 tablespoons chicken onto the tortilla, roll it up and put seam-side down in the baking dish. Fry and fill the remaining tortillas, arranging them side by side in the dish. Pour 2 cups of the tomato-chile sauce over the enchiladas and top with the queso fresco. Bake until warmed through, about 20 minutes. Drain the sliced onion and scatter over the enchiladas. Divide among plates and top with more cilantro, sauce and crema, if desired.

VEGETARIAN ENCHILADAS SUIZAS
A one-skillet dinner, this vegetable-packed take on Swiss enchiladas makes a delicious and slightly decadent dinner. Crema and cheese are the "Swiss" parts which top layers of poblano peppers, red onion, and zucchini with soft corn tortillas dipped in green salsa and all baked to perfection.

Not what I usually find for Spanish/Mexican food. These enchiladas have become a family treat. They're really rich, and taste even better as leftovers. The extra prep time is worth every second to get a dish this impressive that tastes so great. Because everything is pre-cooked, you can save prepared dish in fridge and oven it later. My sister was so proud to make them herself, she took them into her high school Spanish class! (needless to say they were a big hit, and she didn't save any for us... ) Super for a special dinner, or frozen for later lunches, even non-cooks can pull this one off!
