Roasted Hatch Chile Chicken Enchiladas


Happy Cinco De Mayo!~ Here’s a repost from last year 🙂 I love roasted Hatch chiles!  Every year in August Central Market has the Hatch Chile Festival so I always try to make new things with this great versatile chile.  You can use poblanos instead as well since the hatch aren’t out yet!

Prep Time: 20 min

Cook Time Total: 25-30 min

Serves: 3


  • 6 corn tortillas
  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 4 roasted, mild hatch chiles
  • 1 can hatch chile enchilada sauce (you will use a quarter can) I like to blend some fresh tomatillos into this sauce as well.
  • 6 oz light sour cream
  • 8 0z mexican blend cheese (or monterrey jack will do)
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper


Pre-Heat Oven: to 375 degrees

  1. Season chicken with salt and pepper, cook chicken breasts until done then shred
  2. Take roasted Hatch chiles and cut tops off and gently scrape seeds out, place in small blender with 1/4 can of prepared Hatch brand chile enchilada sauce, 6oz of sour cream, and spices-blend thoroughly.
  3. Warm tortillas for about 30 seconds in microwave
  4. Spoon a few spoonfuls of hatch sauce into a medium sized casserole so tortillas don’t stick
  5. Start assembling enchiladas: take a tortilla place a handful of cheese down, add some shredded chicken, then drizzle hatch sauce on top of chicken and then roll up and place in casserole, repeat until all 6 are done
  6. Drizzle remaining hatch sauce over the tops of enchiladas and sprinkle with remaining cheese
  7. Bake in oven until hot and bubbly, 20-25 min
  8. Sprinkle some chives on top and serve

Serve with black beans or charro and enjoy!

I live in Austin with my wonderful husband, dog Ginger, and cat Skiddy. We are a pretty laid back group (except for Ginger). When I'm not teaching yoga, personal training, or dog walking... I'm in the kitchen. I'm always experimenting with new ingredients and thinking of ways to prepare fresh foods in a unique way. I hope to update the blog 4-5 times a week. I've had several friends, family, and clients inquire about my recipes so here it goes. What to expect: Healthy recipes that are good for you, some classics (that have been spruced up), some not so healthy recipes (still made with quality ingredients that can be enjoyed in moderation), and beer and wine parings/reviews! I hope you enjoy, cheers!
