From the Test Kitchen

These Tex-Mex enchiladas, with their layers of irresistible flavors and textures, are sure to be a hit. Our filling features seared chicken (seasoned with a zesty Mexican spice blend), black beans, and yogurt. To complement the creamy filling, we’re also making a bright salsa verde by roasting tomatillos, then cooking them with onion and garlic. It makes for a perfect topping along with a layer of rich white cheddar.
