"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

1/2 tsp. sea salt, to coat the chicken
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper, to coat the chicken
2 large boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded, divided

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and add the minced garlic to the enchilada sauce in a deep skilletOpens in a new tab. and heat to boiling over medium-high heat.

Sprinkle sea salt and ground black pepper over the chicken breasts and then nestle the chicken breasts into the sauce. Reduce the heat to low, cover and cook until the chicken is cooked through, about 15-20 minutes. Remove the chicken from the sauce, set aside and let both the chicken and the sauce cool.
Using two forks, shred the chicken breasts by holding one fork steady and slowly scraping the other fork, prongs faced backwards, away from the other fork.
Transfer the shredded chicken to a large bowl. Add half the enchilada sauce from the pan with the chicken, half the Monterrey jack and half the cheddar cheeses and the 1/2 cup of cilantro to the shredded chicken. Stir to combine.
Wrap the corn tortillas in a damp cloth or paper towel and microwave on high for 15-20 seconds until pliable and warm.
Grease a 9-inch x 13-inch casserole dishOpens in a new tab. with olive oil. Spoon about 1/3 cup of the chicken mixture along the center of a tortilla. Gently, but firmly, roll the tortilla around the filling and place into the baking dish, seam-side down. Repeat with remaining tortillas.

Pour the remaining sauce over the enchiladas and sprinkle remaining cheese over the sauce. Sprinkle with fresh cilantro.

Place casserole dish in the oven, uncovered, for 8-10 minutes or until the tortillas begin to turn golden and cheese is melted.
