Chicken Enchiladas with Salsa Verde

1/2 cups Canola Oil Or Vegetable Oil
8 whole Corn Tortillas
16 ounces, fluid Tomatillo Salsa Verde (I Like The Herdez Brand)
2 whole Breasts Of Rotisserie Chicken, Shredded (or Other Large Chicken Breasts, Cooked And Shredded)
1 pinch Salt, Or To Taste
1 whole Jalapeno, Sliced
1- 1/2 cup Shredded Mexican Cheese
1/2 bunches Cilantro Leaves, Roughly Chopped


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (176 degrees C). Add half the oil into a small skillet on medium-high heat and add a tortilla into the skillet. After a few seconds, using a fork or tongs, carefully flip tortilla and allow it to fry for another few seconds. The tortillas should crisp up slightly. Remove it from the skillet and set on a paper towel lined plate to absorb excess oil. Repeat with remaining tortillas and add the remainder of the oil to the skillet once you start running low. Next add about 1/2 (or a little less) of the salsa verde to the bottom of a large casserole dish (I used a 9x13). Add the tortillas and allow them to soak in the liquid to soften. Add a healthy pinch of salt to the shredded chicken and mix. Add a small handful of chicken to each tortilla, as well as a few slices of jalapeno. Roll up each tortilla and place them next to each other in the dish, seam-side down. Top with remainder of salsa verde and cheese. Bake in the oven for 25 minutes and then broil on high for about 3 minutes or until cheese has bubbled and started to turn golden. Remove from oven. Serve topped with cilantro, maybe some more jalapeno slices, and sour cream if you like. Enjoy!
