Ingredients

Directions

  1. Place the chicken in a large pot, add enough water to cover, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until cooked through, 25 to 35 minutes; remove from pot and let cool. When cool enough to handle, shred the chicken, discarding the skin and bones. Divide the chicken meat between 2 large bowls.
  2. Meanwhile, in a blender, working in batches, puree the salsa, cilantro, and 2 cups of the sour cream until smooth; transfer to a medium saucepan as you work. Simmer the sauce until slightly thickened, 15 to 20 minutes; stir in the remaining 2 cups of sour cream.
  3. To each bowl of chicken, add 1 package of corn, 1 cup of the sauce, 2 cups of the cheese, and 1 teaspoon each salt and pepper and toss to combine.
  4. Spread 1 cup of the remaining sauce in each of four 9-by-13-inch baking dishes (4 cups total). Roll the chicken mixture in the tortillas (about ½ cup per tortilla) and place seam-side down in the dishes (8 rolls per dish). Top each dish of enchiladas with 1 cup each of the remaining sauce and cheese.
  5. To eat tonight: Bake the enchiladas at 400° F until bubbling and beginning to brown, 15 to 20 minutes.
  6. To freeze and cook later: Freeze the unbaked enchiladas, tightly sealed, for up to 3 months. To cook, thaw the enchiladas and bake, uncovered, at 400° F until heated through, bubbling, and beginning to brown, 25 to 30 minutes.

    Cranberries

    High in vitamin C, these hard, tart berries are grown in bogs in colder regions of North America and Europe. They’re almost always eaten cooked, as in the classic Thanksgiving relish.
