Yep, I have heard it before, "I am from Texas", "I am from Arizona", etc, and they say this is not an enchilada. Quite true, but what ever happened to experimenting a little? This is not a low cost meal, but if using all home made ingredients, you save some money. Links to the shortcuts are listed in the Recipe Notes section.

Ingredients
Servings: people
Instructions
  1. Boil the breasts or thighs until cooked, allow to cool then shred, discarding any skin and bones.
  2. To make the meat mixture: heat oil in medium skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken, onion and green chile peppers and saute until browned, then add taco seasoning and cook according to package directions.
  3. To make cheese mixture: in a medium bowl mix sour cream with cottage cheese and season with salt and pepper; stir until well blended.
  4. Preheat your oven to 175 C.
  5. To assemble: heat tortillas until soft. In each tortilla place a spoonful of meat mixture, a spoonful of cheese mixture and a bit of shredded cheese. Roll tortillas and place in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish. Top with any remaining meat and cheese mixture, enchilada sauce and remaining shredded cheese.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly.
  7. Serve with beans on the side and additional cheese if desired.
Recipe Notes

Boneless and skinless chicken breasts run about 87 Baht/kilo. For this recipe, 3 might set you back about 80 Baht. For the tortillas, I do not have a price on that, what I use was brought here from Phuket so I have no idea about the cost, considering that, I would say the cost per person, per meal is about $1.50 to $2, max. Make the cottage cheese yourself and save a lot of money as well.

Shortcuts: Taco Seasoning, Cottage Cheese, Enchilada Sauce, Sour Cream.

Adapted from an internet recipe.

  1. I have made these and I will say they are very good! I opted for Cheddar cheese versus Jack, I also made the Cottage cheese myself as well as the Taco seasoning and Enchilada seasoning mixes. I used flour tortillas as that is what I had on hand but cannot price the meal as the tortillas were a gift and I do not know what a package costs. Over all, easy to make, and inexpensive. Photo is mine as well after they came out of the oven.
