Wash produce before use


Cook the chicken and enchilada sauce

  • Peel and coarsely chop enough onion to measure ¾ cup [1½ cups].
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Stir in the onion and cook until starting to soften, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the chicken and cook, stirring once or twice, until the meat begins to crisp around the edges, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the enchilada sauce base and ½ cup [1 cup] water and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce is heated through, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
While the chicken and enchilada sauce cook, prepare the scallions and beans.


Prep the scallions; cook the refried beans

  • Trim the root ends from the scallions; thinly slice the scallions on the diagonal. Set aside for assembling the enchiladas.
  • Rinse the pinto beans.
In a medium bowl, using a fork, masher, or the bottom of a bowl, mash the beans to a coarse paste.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the beans, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring constantly, until heated through 2 to 3 minutes. Return the beans to the bowl, season to taste with salt and pepper, and cover to keep warm. Wipe out the pan.


Heat the tortillas

  • Remove 6 [12] tortillas from the package; save the rest for another use.
In the same pan used for the beans, warm 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Working in batches, add the tortillas and cook, turning once, until crisp around the edges but still pliable, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate and season with salt. Add more oil between batches if needed.


Assemble the stacked enchiladas

Place the tortillas on a work surface. Spread the beans on the tortillas in an even layer. Transfer 1 tortilla to an individual plate, top with ¼ cup of the chicken and enchilada sauce, and sprinkle with some Mexican cheese blend and scallions. Repeat 2 more times to form an enchilada stack. Repeat to form a second enchilada stack on another plate. Drizzle the stacked enchiladas with any remaining enchilada sauce, top with as much tomatillo sauce base as you like, and garnish with any remaining scallions.


Serve the stacked enchiladas with any remaining tomatillo sauce on the side.
