This is incredibly easy to make. Not to go all Sandra Lee Semi-Homemade on you, but I used part of a rotisserie chicken. That eliminated having to poach or roast chicken breasts. Adding canned green chiles lets you decide if you want more or less spice because you can choose mild or hot chiles. The cheese in the dish can be varied as well.
Enchiladas Suizas is one of those dishes that is almost better if it rests overnight and the cheese sauce is added just before it goes into the oven. That makes it a perfect Cinco de Mayo dinner since you can make it ahead, and enjoy your margaritas while it bakes away in the oven. I serve my enchiladas with a wonderful recipe for Mexican coleslaw that I highly recommend. It gives a new dimension to the dish. It’s not just wildly colorful — it’s mayonnaise-free. Which may just make up for the decadent cream sauce, the Suiza part of the enchilada.
In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients and toss to combine. Chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Keeps well in the refrigerator for several days.
In a skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Cook the onion and bell pepper until just softened, 5-8 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl and combine with the chicken, Cheddar, green chiles, salsa, cilantro, and cumin. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and mix well.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Grease a 10-by-15-by-2-inch baking pan or 2 smaller pans. Place 1 flour tortilla on a flat surface and place about 1/3 cup of the chicken mixture along one edge. Roll up from the filling side, and place seam side down in the baking pan. Repeat the process with the remaining chicken mixture. Sprinkle Monterey or pepper Jack cheese over the enchiladas.
Combine the cream and chicken broth and pour over the enchiladas. Cover the pan with foil and bake 30 minutes. Remove the foil and continue baking 10 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Garnish individual servings with avocado, tomato, and cilantro, if desired.
