  • 6      medium tomatillos, husks removed and rinsed
  • 1 1/2   pounds   skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1    32 ounce box  chicken broth
  • 1      medium green sweet pepper, chopped
  • 1/2   cup   chopped red onion
  • 1      stalk celery, chopped
  • 1    4 ounce can  diced green chiles
  • 2    tablespoons   snipped fresh cilantro
  • 1      fresh jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced*
  • 1    tablespoon   ground cumin
  • 1    tablespoon   lime juice
  • 2    teaspoons   chili powder
  • 2      cloves garlic, minced
  • 1    teaspoon   salt
  • 1    teaspoon   ground black pepper
  •     Topper such as sour cream, chopped green onion, chopped red sweet pepper, sliced jalapeno peppers, snipped fresh cilantro, and/or tortilla chips (optional)
 
directions
Chop three tomatillos. Place remaining tomatillos in blender. Cover; blend until smooth. In a 3-1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker combine pureed and chopped tomatillos, chicken, broth, sweet pepper, onion, celery, chiles, cilantro, jalapeno, cumin, lime juice, chili powder, garlic, salt and black pepper.
 
 
Cover; cook on low for 6 to 7 hours or high for 3 to 3-1/2 hours. Remove chicken; let stand until cool enough to handle. Shred chicken; return to soup in slow-cooker. If desired, serve topped with sour cream, additional chopped red sweet pepper or jalapeno peppers, snipped cilantro, and/or tortilla chips. Makes 4 to 6 servings.
 
 
 
Note
  • * Because hot chile peppers, such as jalapenos, contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with chiles as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the chile peppers, wash your hands well with soap and water.

ingredients
 
  • 3 1/2   pounds   boneless pork shoulder
  • 1    14 ounce can  chicken broth
  • 1/2   cup   chopped onion (1 medium)
  • 6      cloves garlic, minced
  • 1    tablespoon   ground cumin
  • 2 - 3    teaspoons   ground chipotle chile pepper or hot chili powder
  • 1    teaspoon   salt
  • 3    10 ounce cans  enchilada sauce
  • 1    tablespoon   snipped fresh cilantro
  • 1    4 ounce can  diced green chile peppers
  • 8    ounces   cotija cheese, shredded (2 cups)
  • 8 - 12    8 inches   flour tortillas
  •     Snipped fresh cilantro
  •     Diced tomato or quartered grape tomatoes
  •     Sour cream (optional)
 
directions
Trim fat from pork. In a 3 1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker combine pork shoulder, broth, onion, garlic, cumin, ground chipotle chile pepper or chili powder, and salt. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 10 to 11 hours or on high-heat setting for 5 to 6 hours.
 
 
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Remove pork from slow cooker, reserving cooking liquid. Using two forks, pull meat into coarse strands.*
 
 
In a large bowl combine pork, 1/2 cup of the enchilada sauce, 2 tablespoons of the reserved cooking liquid, and the 1 tablespoon snipped cilantro. Set aside.
 
 
In a medium bowl combine the remaining enchilada sauce, 1/4 cup of the reserved cooking liquid (discard any remaining cooking liquid), and the diced green chile peppers. Spread about 1/2 cup of enchilada-green chile pepper mixture in the bottom of a 3-quart rectangular baking dish; set aside.
 
 
Divide pork mixture and 1 1/2 cups of the cheese among tortillas, placing meat and cheese near the edge of each tortilla. Roll up tortillas. Place filled tortillas, seam sides down, in the prepared baking dish (place tortillas close together); top with the remaining enchilada-green chile pepper mixture. Cover with foil; bake for 25 minutes. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup cheese. Bake, uncovered, about 5 minutes more or until heated through and cheese is softened and starts to brown slightly.
 
 
Sprinkle with additional snipped cilantro and tomato. If desired, serve with sour cream. Makes 6 servings
 
 
 
Make Ahead Tip
  • *Test Kitchen Tip: At this point, the meat and cooking liquid can be refrigerated overnight before assembling enchiladas. The cooking liquid will thicken. To serve, pour cooking liquid into a small saucepan; heat over low heat until boiling. Continue as directed in Steps 3 through 6.

  • 1    tablespoon   extra-virgin olive oil, or canola oil
  • 1      large onion, chopped (2 cups)
  • 1      bay leaf
  • 2      large apples, preferably Granny Smith or Northern Spy, peeled and diced (3 cups)
  • 1/3   cup   packed light brown sugar
  • 1/3   cup   hot jalapeno jelly, (see Ingredient note)
  • 1/3   cup   orange juice
  • 1/4   cup   cider vinegar
  • 2    tablespoons   lemon juice
 
directions
Prepare Apple-Jalapeno Chutney.
 
 
Meanwhile, combine orange juice, oil, ginger, brown sugar, scallions, coriander, cinnamon, salt and pepper in a medium bowl; whisk to blend. Add the chicken; turn to coat with the marinade. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes or for up to 6 hours.
 
 
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a 7-by-11-inch or similar shallow baking dish with cooking spray. Arrange the chicken breasts in the baking dish and pour the marinade directly over them. Bake for 10 minutes, then reduce oven temperature to 375 degrees and bake until the chicken is no longer pink in the center, 20 to 25 minutes more. (An instant-read thermometer inserted in the center should register 170 degrees F.) Let cool in the pan for 5 to 10 minutes, then serve with the chutney on the side.
 
 
Apple-Jalapeno Chutney
 
Heat oil in a large nonreactive skillet over medium heat. Add onion and bay leaf; reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, stirring often, until softened and translucent, 9 to 10 minutes. Stir in apples and cook for 3 minutes, stirring often. Add brown sugar, jelly, orange juice, vinegar and lemon juice. Bring the mixture to a low boil, then simmer over medium-low heat, stirring, just until the apples are tender and liquid is reduced by one-third, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer to a bowl. Let cool. Serve at room temperature or chilled.
 
 
Tips:
 
Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 month.
 
 
Ingredient Note: You can find jalapeno jelly in specialty stores and in the jams-and-jellies section or specialty-foods section of large supermarkets.
