Bunnee of Anna+Food and I had the privilege of hosting a worldwide fiesta for May’s Daring Cooks Challenge! We chose a Stacked Green Chile & Grilled Chicken Enchilada recipe using tomatillos. Knowing that not everyone worldwide would be able to find tomatillos, we encouraged the Daring Cooks to create a Mexican dish worthy of a Cinco de Mayo celebration using any homemade Mexican style enchilada sauce recipe.
I absolutely loved this recipe and made it several times. The tomatillos add a touch of tartness to the sauce, which is a nice contrast to the spiciness of the peppers. Making tortillas was optional, but I bought a tortilla press and made both corn and flour tortillas. For my first batch, I made small 4 inch corn tortillas and made four mini stacks in a 9×13 baking dish. The recipe is a bit time consuming, but definitely worth it and it’s easy to make over two days or to do part of it in the morning and finish it up in the evening.
I owe a big thank you to my co-host Bunnee who is such a wonderful, sweet person and was so great to work with. I could not have asked for a better partner. Also, a big thank you to Lis of La Mia Cucina and Ivonne of Cream Puffs in Venice, co-founders of the Daring Kitchen, for creating such a wonderful site to meet other bakers/cooks worldwide and share our adventures with each other.
The Daring Cooks once again stepped up to the challenge and came up with some really creative and delicious enchiladas. Stop by the Daring Cooks Blogroll for links to the Daring Cooks’ blogs.

Hope you are well.
I need your help! I’ve lost the Stacked Green Chicken Enchilada recipe and your website is the only place I’ve found it. My problem is that I can’t find the actual recipe. I thought I’d saved it somewhere, but lots has disappeared since I was active in the Daring Kitchen. If it’s on your website, please tell me how to link to the actual recipe. I hope this isn’t too much trouble. Thanks.

Mmmm does that look so scrumptious! Mmmm love the flavors and the cheesy goodness. Perfect, Barbara!
Loved this challenge Barbara! Thank you!! The sauce – amazing! And the tortillas! Delicious and fun. 🙂 Cheers!!
Oh Barbara, these look wonderful. Funny too, I just cooked a pork roast in some canned enchalada sauce in the crockpot and I was wondering how to make home made. Now I know!!!
Great post Barbara. You did a fantastic job hosting this challenge.
Wow, this was quite the post! So much work, but it sounds delicious and looks wonderful.
Barbara!! Your enchilada stacks look great!! My blog checking lines are right at the bottom of the post. Is that OK or shall I move them to another spot!!
Thanks for the challenge. This challenge was hitting 2 birds w/ one stone..i get to make my homemade salsa verde for the first time and finally found the time to make Cochito Chianpaneco. Thanks again!
You made a great pick! I made this and took photos but didn't get a chance to post them. I'm not crazy about the photos of the final product either. The tomatillo sauce was delicious. Thank you!
Thank you so much for this challenge! It was so fun, and so delicious!
Thank you for a great challenge and checking out my results. You and Bunnee did a great job hosting. I love how your mini-stacks look. The cheese running down the sides looks divine.
Barbara, that is spectacular! What flavour and how beautiful the presentation! Love homemade sauces such as this!
Barbara..thank you so much for such a yummy challenge! I was late, but only because I lost the original photos 🙁 Regardless, it was such a treat since we all LOVE Mexican food here. As always, yours looks terrific and the photos are mouth watering!
Thank you for hosting this challenge! I really enjoyed it and it was my first time making mexican at home! It was delicious and I'll surely be making this again with other fillings. Cheers!
Thanks for hosting such a yummy challenge!
Thanks for choosing such a fun challenge! Everyone here loved them. I had never bought a tomatillo or an Anaheim pepper before and was happy for the need to do so. We will very certainly be making it again and may even make enough enchilada sauce to can some for later use. Loved this one!
