If you have not entered the Stubbs Giveaway yet there are still a few days. Since most of the people were most excited for the Green Chili Marinade I thought I would share this amazing Chicken Enchilada Casserole I made using the Stubbs Green Chile Marinade. This as an amazing and super easy casserole that will feed a crowd. I did not market the extra chicken breasts as I was worried it would be too spicy for the kids.
To adjust the spiciness I would use more sour cream or yogurt. The kids did not complain about the recipe and we had plenty for the next day. If you love the flavors of Chicken Enchiladas but don’t like the assembly process this is the Chicken Enchilada Casserole recipe for you. This chicken Enchilada Casserole recipe contains all the great flavors but combines it into a casserole to save time.
To make this ahead, you can easily grill the chicken breasts and then prep the casserole another day. Or you could make the casserole a day in advance and just take out the casserole as you preheat the oven to allow it to reach room temperature.
Green Chili Chicken Enchilada Casserole Recipe adapted from Stubbs Website
- 6 boneless-skinless chicken breasts (I made just 4 breasts)
- 1 bottle Stubb’s Green Chile Marinade
- 2 cups sour cream or plain Greek Yogurt (no fat)
- 1 14 oz. can black beans, strained
- 1 cup frozen corn, defrosted
- 2 ½ cups shredded cheddar jack cheese
- 15 corn tortillas, torn into pieces
- Cilantro, chopped (optional)
Reserve ½ cup Stubb’s Green Chile Marinade for casserole dish. Marinade the chicken breasts overnight using the remaining Green Chile Marinade.
Prepare grill for direct heat cooking. Cook chicken breasts over direct heat for approximately 7 minutes per side until they have reached an internal temperature of 165 degrees. Reserve 2 chicken breasts for the casserole dish and serve the remaining chicken with your choice of side dishes. (This is optional but you can make yummy quesadillas or a Cobb salad with the marinated chicken)
To prepare the Green Chile Enchilada Casserole, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9×13 baking dish with cooking spray. Chop the two reserved chicken breasts into bite size pieces. Mix the chicken, sour cream, reserved Green Chile Marinade, black beans, corn and 1 ½ cups of cheese.
Arrange 5 tortillas in the bottom of prepared baking dish and top with 1/3 of the chicken mixture. Create another two layers of 5 tortillas and 1/3 of chicken mixture and then top with 1 cup of cheese.
Bake for 30 minutes uncovered until bubbly and the cheese is melted. Top with cilantro and serve.
*NOTE: The enchilada filling can be adjusted according to your taste. Add more chicken, beans or corn if you prefer a less creamy filling.
