The thirty-sixth recipe I made with the Eating with Ellie group is Chicken Enchiladas with Avocado Sauce, and can be found in Ellie Krieger's book Weeknight Wonders, on page 145. I chose the theme for the week: Cinco de Mayo: Let's Cook Mexican!
Ingredient list: chicken, avocado, buttermilk, cilantro, lime, salt, pepper, tomatilla salsa, red onion, and corn tortillas.
I'm not the biggest Mexican food fan, when friends pick restaurants for us to meet and eat at, they know that I'm not ever on the "Let's Eat Mexican!" bandwagon. Recently I've been trying to broaden my tastes in that regard so when my recipe choice fell on May 5th, I figured it would be a nice thing to celebrate Cinco de Mayo and pick a recipe that would fall into that category. For someone who is easing into Mexican flavorings, etc., this is an excellent recipe as it is not too spicy or forward in flavor. I really liked the chicken with the tomatilla and avocado sauce. The chicken was creamy and a little spicy, a great combination. Even Mark, who loves bold spicy Mexican cuisine, enjoyed this very much. The plate in the photo is smaller than a dinner plate and that said, the portion allotment of two of these per person is more than generous, one is very filling and plenty for a portion size. Definitely a repeat.
