I think I mentioned this recipe the other day after a friend (Thanks, Marcia!) shared it on Facebook but I haven’t reported back since I made it.
First, when you click on the link, don’t be confused by the photo. There are tomatillos in the pictures but they aren’t needed in the recipe. They’re in the salsa verde but I’m not sure why they’re in the picture because I thought, and others thought, we needed tomatillos to make this. You don’t.
I kept waiting til I took a picture and never remembered to take a picture. That’s what happens when something is so delicious that I can’t wait to eat!
Don’t depend on my directions . . go to the recipe, but here’s how simple it was, especially with my home canned chicken.
- Open a jar of canned chicken.
- Shred chicken with a fork (or fingers)
- Dump the chicken in a pot.
- Dump the broth from the jar in the pot.
- Add a can of chicken broth (because I already had some broth in the jar).
- Add a can of green enchilada sauce.
- Add Half & Half or heavy cream.
- Add salsa verde.
- Add cream cheese (I used 8 oz.)
- Add grated cheese (I used a Mexican blend)
It’s that simple! Vince loved it. I really couldn’t stop eating it but these are the flavors I love.
Sounds SO good and so easy!
I bought the needed items a few days ago and will make it later this week when the weather turns chilly and rainy. Can’t wait–simple and sound delicious. so glad you post links to recipes as it makes it simple to quickly pull it up while I am standing in the grocery aisle and see what I need! 😉

I made this, following the recipe you shared but used a rotisserie chicken and cooked everything in a pot on the stove. It was thick and flavorful but not overly spiced. We definitely will be having it again. Thank you, and your friend, for sharing.

It got even better after sitting a day or two in the fridge.
I made it after your post about it last week. Husband loves it. Very easy. I also used 8 oz cream cheese- I think recipe called for 4 oz. I also added one zucchini and one yellow squash and an onion and puréed it before adding the chicken back in. Made 4 quarts.
That seems simple enough. You should cook more often. LOL!
