Favorite Ingredients Friday

I found this recipe online while surfing one day. It sounded pretty good and very easy. It was both. We really enjoyed it. I bought a rotisserie chicken at Sam's and pulled all the meat off before making this. I used half the meat for this recipe. I then made a stock out of what was left of the chicken. Be sure to toss in the skin and the jellied stuff on the bottom of the tray. It makes a rich golden stock. I then used the rest of the pulled chicken and the stock to make a big pot of chicken noodle soup. I got my money's worth from that chicken.

Chicken Chilaquiles

1 1/2 pounds fresh tomatillos – husked, rinsed and halved
2 large garlic cloves
1 large jalapeño – halved lengthwise, stemmed and seeded
1/4 cup packed cilantro
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon coriander (didn’t have any, so I left it out)
Salt and freshly ground pepper
1 pound shredded cooked chicken (3 cups), at room temperature
1 1/2 cups shredded pepper Jack cheese (6 ounces) (used colby jack)
1/2 cup farmer cheese (4 ounces) (used ricotta)
1 scallion, sliced (didn’t have any, so I left it out)
One 6-ounce bag tortilla chips (8 cups)
1/4 cup sour cream

Preheat the oven to 450°. In a blender or food processor, puree the tomatillos, garlic, jalapeño and cilantro until smooth. In a large saucepan, heat the oil until shimmering. Add the cumin and coriander and cook over high heat until fragrant, 30 seconds. Add the tomatillo puree, bring to a boil and cook until the sauce loses its bright green color, 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

In a medium bowl, toss the chicken with 3/4 cup of the pepper Jack, the farmer cheese, scallion and half of the tomatillo sauce; season with salt and pepper. In another bowl, toss the tortilla chips with the remaining sauce.

Spread half of the chips in an 8-by-11-inch baking dish; top with the chicken and cover with the remaining tortilla chips. Don't pack the chips down. Dollop the sour cream over the chips and sprinkle with the remaining 3/4 cup of pepper Jack. Bake for 15 minutes, or until the cheese is browned. Serve at once.

This sounds absolutely wonderful...Something we all would love. I like that you didn't mind leaving or changing a few things here and there. I cook that way often enough.
