Cottage Cheese Chicken Enchiladas

Please take my word for it - these are the best enchiladas EVER. Yes, I think they are even better than all the other enchiladas I've posted on here. You need to make these, definitely. Don't let the cottage cheese part throw you off - I promise, these are AMAZING! Recipe from I served these with chips and salsa.


* 1 tablespoon vegetable oil (omitted)
* 2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - boiled and shredded (I baked)
* 1/2 cup chopped onion (omitted)
* 1 (7 ounce) can chopped green chile peppers
* 1 (1 ounce) package taco seasoning mix (I used hot and spicy)
* 1/2 cup sour cream
* 2 cups cottage cheese
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 1 pinch ground black pepper
* 12 (6 inch) corn tortillas
* 2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese (I used a four cheese mexican blend)
* 1 (10 ounce) can red enchilada sauce (I used a garlic flavored enchilada sauce)


1. To Make Meat Mixture: Heat oil in medium skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken, onion and green chile peppers and saute until browned, then add taco seasoning and prepare meat mixture according to package directions.
2. To Make Cheese Mixture: In a medium bowl mix sour cream with cottage cheese and season with salt and pepper; stir until well blended.
3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
4. To Assemble Enchiladas: Heat tortillas until soft. In each tortilla place a spoonful of meat mixture, a spoonful of cheese mixture and a bit of shredded cheese. Roll tortillas and place in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish. Top with any remaining meat and cheese mixture, enchilada sauce and remaining shredded cheese.
5. Bake for 30 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly.
NOTE: I made these a little differently to make life easier - I baked the chicken on its own and then just combined the shredded chicken with the cottage cheese, sour cream, taco seasoning, and green chile peppers all into one bowl. Place chicken/cheese mixture on enchilada and top with the shredded cheese, roll-up, and cover with enchilada sauce and some more shredded cheese.
