Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 sweet yellow onion, sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 tsp cumin, ground
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 cups chicken stock low-sodium

  • 2 cups LA VICTORIA® Green Taco Sauce

  • 12 oz Montery Jack cheese part-skim or low fat, shredded
  • Salt and pepper

Cooking Directions

  1. Heat olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook until softened and caramelized, about 10 minutes.
  2. Add garlic and cook 1 minute. Stir in cumin and flour and cook, stirring, 1 more minute. Gradually pour in stock, stirring constantly.
  3. Bring to a simmer, stirring to make sure the flour doesn't stick to bottom of pan; liquid will thicken. Fold in shredded chicken, diced chilies and cilantro; season well with salt and pepper.
  4. Preheat oven to 350°F. Pour ½ cup of LA VICTORIA® Green Taco Sauce onto bottom of a 9”x13” pan and distribute evenly.
  5. Dip a tortilla into the LA VICTORIA® Green Taco Sauce and place on a cutting board. Put a big scoop of the chicken mixture in center, sprinkle with a little of cheese and roll tortilla like a cigar to enclose filling. Use a spatula to place tortilla seam side down in baking dish.
  6. Fill rest of tortillas and place into baking dish. Pour remaining LA VICTORIA® Green Taco Sauce over top and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes or until bubbly and cracked on top.
