Hi! I’m Skinny Bronze Mantis. I’m excited to help explain how to make the best ever Green Chile Chicken Enchiladas. The stupid Paparazzo and I will lead you through the steps as explained in Laurie’s “Thought for Food” journal.
Note: If you are vegetarian, simply leave out the chicken. If you are vegan, substitute dairy cheese with vegan cheese.
1 lb 6 oz or 21 oz (623.7 g) Grilled chicken thighs cubed
3 quarts (2.84 liters) chopped green chile
4 onions chopped and sautéed
40 yellow corn tortillas. 10 per layer cut in quarters.
2.5 lbs (1.13 kgs) Mexican Four Cheese Blend (Monterey Jack, Medium Cheddar, Queso Quesadilla, Asadero Cheese).
2.5 cups (591.5 ml) soup stock
First thing you have to do is start with the right attitude and correct posture.
To make the green chile enchilada sauce, chop and sauté the onions until they are golden brown. Chop the green chiles, Mix the sautéed onions, chopped green chiles and soup stock together. Divide into 4 equal portions, one for each layer.
Place the shelf in the middle height in the oven, and preheat the oven to 400º F (204.4º C) while you assemble the enchilada. You will make four layers. The first three layers are the same. Grease the bottom of a 17x13x3 inch pan (43x33x7.62 cm). Cut 10 yellow tortillas in quarters and cover the bottom of the pan. Measure out 7 oz (207 ml) of cubed grill chicken thighs, and spread evenly on the tortillas. Measure 10 oz of the cheese blend, and spread evenly of the tortillas and chicken. Spoon out the first of the four parts of the green chile enchilada sauce on the cheese and carefully spread out evenly over the cheese. Repeat the same order of layering for the next two layers.
The last layer only has tortillas, enchilada sauce and cheese. Normally, Laurie puts the cheese on top, but on this batch she was talking to Susan, got distracted and put the green chile enchilada sauce on top. Once all the layers are completed, place the enchilada on the middle shelf in the heated oven and cook for approximately 25 minutes or when it is heated through and the cheese on top is bubbling and starting to brown.
Set the table and serve it hot. After we eat our initial meal, we divide up the enchilada into serving sized containers and freeze the servings for lunches or whenever we feel like green chile chicken enchilada.
I had enchiladas with fried eggs for breakfast this morning.
We had clear blue skies all day. A few clouds rallied and popped into the sky for the painter at sunset.

That WAS the best enchilada ever, on a day that seemed almost pre-pandemic normal. Thank you. 🙂
Thank you for coming out and enjoying our enchilada with us. It was lots of fun and had that pre-pandemic feeling.
Delicious. Thanks Skinny Bronze Mantis for sharing. Nothing more need be said.
Thanks, Maj & Sher. Skinny Bronze Mantis had a lot of fun with it.
Best recipe post ever! Love everything – from the handwritten recipe with drawings to the narration by Skinny Bronze Mantis
Thanks, JYP. I’m very happy you think so. Skinny Bronze Mantis thinks you should have a tits up mug if you don’t already. It’s good inspiration to to get yourself together, get yourself pointed in the right direction, to get out there, and take no crap from no one.
I just noticed Skinny Bronze Mantis’ tits up power pose.
She did a great demonstration.
I absolutely love Skinny Bronze Mantis – her explanations were so clear!
Your Skinny Bronze Mantis is a perfect hostess, Tim! Good to hear you, Laurie and Susan had a bit of normalcy with the enchiladas.
Thanks. Lavinia. It was really nice.
What a delicious post! Wish I could beam over and taste that green chile chicken enchiladas.
You would love it, Herman. That is the one Star Trek technology we really need. Thanks for stopping in.
It looks delicious Timothy 🙂
EPIC. Timothy thanks you for another recipe .
You are very welcome, Shey. Let me know if you try it and how it comes out.
I will indeed.
Thanks for sharing…
You are welcome, King Kong. Thanks for dropping by.
MY pleasure, thanks for your comment,,,
This was so fun, Timothy, starting with the fantastic Skinny Bronze Mantis so close to our face, and then sharing this fabulous enchilada adventure. Thanks for taking us into your kitchen and for sharing Laurie’s best ever enchilada.
You are welcome. Thanks for the wonderful comment, Jet. We all appreciate it. Especially Skinny Bronze Mantis.
I’d have them for breakfast, lunch and supper!
That’s pretty much how we eat it out here. Thanks, Couriers.
I do hope miss Skinny Bronze Mantis had here share after all this trouble she went!!!!
um…. that looks like a biiiiig breakfast!!! 😉
I think the painter wants some too!
Thanks, Marina. Skinny Bronze and the painter both got there share. Although, the painter really prefers Red chile. She rarely used green in her paintings.
Funny isn’t it? Green almost never appears in the sky! 🤔
Glad everyone got their share!
Definitly not a sky color.
…unless painter goes crazy too!! 🤣
Aw, Timothy. This is epic. Now, I want to eat enchiladas. Can I have the chile on the side?
Yes. You can have the chile on the side. Thanks Gabriela.
Thank you 🙏🌹
I hope you didn’t tell your Laurie she made a mistake in her prep, because when you’re the cook, you don’t make mistakes (lol). 😉
She was the one who noticed she reversed the cheese and chile. Thanks, David.
Not a *mistake* then. Happy Labor Day. Is your Balloon Fest back on? In COS, they are having their balloon fest, Labor Day Lift-Off (I think that is the name these days). Megan was going to shoot a balloon flying down the street low and fast. She said the camera on her iPhone wasn’t cooperating.
It’s on. I’m not applying for a pres pass this year. The field is across the river from us, and a new office is only a mile from the field, so I don’t need to go anywhere near the crowds.
that praying mantis is your food must Timothy.. love the looks of his meal1💖💖💖💖💖
That looks amazing! I might have to start a whole file of Tim & Laurie Recipes, wait, I already did!😉
Hahaha! Thanks, Tiffany.
I’m up for the fried eggs.. not so much the other ha!
I think you might like the best ever. Thanks, Brian.
I saved this recipe in hopes that in the future, my stomach will straighten up. Looks and sounds heavenly! Any certain variety you use, Tim?
We use Big Jim green chiles. Medium with hot bites. Thanks, KT.
And thanks for the info.
Wow, an incredible recipe! You’re so full of life, Skinny Bronze Mantis 😉
Skinny Bronze Mantis has it going on! Great recipe… and loved the cup! lol!
The cup is great. Laurie uses it daily as a reminder to stand up straight. Thanks, Nancy.
OMG! I make a veggie version of this, and had no idea it was an actual dish!
The 1 missing ingredient, the 3 quarts green chilies…Hahaha … I use 1/2 cup chilies.
If a 1/2 cup works, then it’s perfect. We are a little insane, and probably way overboard about green chiles out here. Thanks, Resa.
Great post .. love your new pal Bronze Mantis! Enchilada heaven … wish I lived closer 🙂
As Herman was noting, we need to be able to use a transporter to swap foods and things. Thanks, Julie.
Oh I agree ..imagine!
Wittily presented, Tim.
I’m damned hungry now! Hehe!
Thanks, Inchcock. You would loves these.
