Dutch Oven Chicken Enchiladas

I was approached by a representative from CSNstores.com (Hi, C-!) and she asked me if I would be willing to share with you all the fantastic-ness that is the Dutch oven! I, of course, quickly agreed knowing that you all need to seriously get one of these bad boys! I love my bright orange Rachael Ray Dutch oven, but there are tons of others you can find here. I have extensively searched the cookware.com website (part of the CSNstores group) and absolutely love everything they have to offer! Hey, Dad, can I use your credit card? I...uhh...err...have an emergency...yeah, that's it, an emergency! I'll pay you back--I promise!

Isn't she perrrtty?

So, now here's the even greater news. YOU, yes YOU, could win your very own $40 gift certificate you can use toward your purchase of ANYTHING from the CSNstores.com group--even a nifty, new Dutch oven! Here's how to enter: just leave a comment below. It could be about the Chicken Enchiladas, the Dutch oven, the weather, why everything ought to be sold in twin packs, or really anything else that makes your heart happy. You have the rest of the week to leave comments (only one per day, please!) and at the end of the week (meaning Saturday) I'll choose a winner using Random.org so it won't seem like I'm playing favorites! -- This contest is now closed.

Oh--I almost forgot! Here's how you make these fantastic Dutch Oven Chicken Enchiladas:

Dutch Oven Chicken Enchiladas
6 hungry adults
Source: Heavily edited, but inspired by http://papadutch.home.comcast.net/~papadutch/ (Byron's Dutch Oven Recipes--this guy is cool!)

2 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
12 corn tortillas
1 (4 oz) can diced green chiles, undrained
2 cans cream of chicken soup
1 pint sour cream
1 small (4 oz?) cans sliced black olives, drained
2 cups shredded Mexican blend cheese
1/2 large onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
6 green onions, chopped
2 T olive oil
dash cumin
dash chili powder
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350. Boil your chicken in a stock pot on the stove top until it is no longer pink. Shred it up using two forks and set aside.

In a medium bowl, mix together the cans of soup, sour cream, diced green chiles, cumin, chili powder, and salt and pepper. Set aside.

Heat the 2 T olive oil in your Dutch oven on the stove top over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, add the onions, garlic, and olives. Once the onions are tender, add the shredded chicken to reheat. Transfer the chicken mixture to another bowl.

Put enough of the sour cream mixture (about 1 cup) on the bottom of the Dutch oven to cover the bottom. Warm the tortillas in the microwave for a minute to soften them. Fill a tortilla with a scoop of the chicken mixture, a pinch of the green onions, and a sprinkle of cheese. Roll it up and place it seam side down. Do this for all the tortillas and arrange in the Dutch oven. Cover the tortillas with the rest of the sauce, the shredded cheese, and the rest of the chopped green onions.

Bake uncovered for about 35 minutes, or until the cheese is melted, and sauce is bubbly, and the dish is heated through.

Side note: You can do this same thing in a 9x13 glass dish, but the Dutch oven is fun to use!

  1. Hi Michelle!

    I love your blog and your devotion to dutch ovens! I'm definitely going to make those pb rice krispy treats! If you're interested in food/baking blogs you should check out Joy the Baker (http://www.joythebaker.com/), I really love reading her stuff!

  2. I love how consistent you've been at blogging Michelle! Your food always looks amazing.

    Ironically, yesterday I was wishing I had a dutch oven or a cast iron pan because I so wanted to make an Italian fritata. In the end, I had my husband unscrew the plasticky handle to my frying pan so that I could put it in the oven. What we do for good food!

  3. Hi Michelle!

    I've enjoyed reading your blog! You make amazing food...your husband is lucky! Mine has just been getting what I can scrape up lately. :)

    I'd love a dutch oven! It looks like it would be perfect for making wonderful fall tummy-filling foods!

  7. Hi Shell

    Secondly, we have a dutch oven and have used it. We love it. Can't wait to try the enchilidas.

    Lastly, I'm on a diet so I can beat my sister Cheri at losing weight. Can you post some diet foods like, "Cardboard on a Stick", "Newspaper Balls" (like popcorn balls but you just wad up the newspaper and eat it), or possible "Frozen Water Pops". Thanks for any ideas.

    Talk to you soon.
    Love from your Dad
