easy salsa verde enchiladas

one of jim's and my favorite recipes is for these salsa verde chicken enchiladas from cooking light.  it combines a few fresh ingredients with jarred salsa, and it is delicious and super easy.

you just blend garlic, onion, and cilantro with store-bought salsa verde; that's your sauce as well as what flavors your chicken (along with cream cheese). we usually use flour tortillas instead of corn (skipping the soaking step), as well as cheddar cheese and lots more cilantro.

the last time we made it, we only had corn tortillas, leftover from baking tortilla chips, and i wanted to get it in the oven fast. you can't really roll corn tortillas without soaking them first or they break, so i improvised and made the dish into an enchilada casserole. it was simple and just as delicious. i just layered the salsa verde, tortillas, and chicken mix, topped with cheese, and popped it into the oven to bake. you can stick it under the broiler for a last minute or two if you want to brown the cheese a little and garnish it with chopped cilantro when it comes out.

do you have a favorite easy weeknight meal?
