Country.Chef's picture
  Corn tortillas 20
  Green chilies 12 , roasted, peeled and chopped
  Chicken legs 10 , cooked and shredded
  Onion 1 Tablespoon, chopped
  Cream of mushroom soup 1 Can (10 oz)
  Oil 2 Tablespoon
  Frying oil 2 Cup (32 tbs) (For Frying Tortillas)
  Grated cheese 2 Tablespoon (For Melting On Top)

1) In a saucepan, heat 2 tablespoons of oil.
2) Fry the onions till they are transparent.
3) Add the green chilies, shredded chicken, mushroom soup and 2 cups of water. Heat the mixture thoroughly.
4) While the mixture is cooking, in a frying pan, heat the oil for frying the tortillas.
5) Once the oil is hot enough, fry the tortillas one by one, flipping as required so that both the sides are well coated with the oil and stiff.
6) Into a casserole dish, ladle some of the chicken mixture and layer three tortillas.
7) Ladle some more chicken mixture and more mixtures.
8) Repeat the layers till all the tortillas have been used up. Save about ½ cup of chicken mixture for topping.
9) On top of the layers, grate some cheese.
10) Allow the preparation to let for about 20 minutes so that the cheese melts. Also, the tortillas need to be completely soaked in the sauce.

11) Serve at room temperature. Rice, cooked in chicken broth, and beans are good accompaniments to the enchiladas.
