Green Chili Cheese Ball

A friend of mine would frequently supply my coworkers and I with the most fabulous cheese ball ever… I got the recipe and was surprised to find that this delicious appetizer is deceptively simple.  Now we frequently find ourselves fulfilling requests for this party staple.

The following recipe is how we most commonly prepare it however it is delicious in many ways.  We have tried it with sun-dried tomatoes, garlic and basil.  Or how about some crispy bacon, ham, or pepperoni… Get creative and make up your own recipe – what would you put in your cheese ball?

My sister asked for my enchilada recipe the other day, so I thought I would go ahead and share it here for all to see.  I hope you like it.

Green Chili Chicken Enchiladas

1 onion chopped and sauteed
2-3 green chilies
1 16 oz carton sour cream
2 chicken breasts boiled and shredded
4 cups fiesta blend Shredded cheese
12-16 corn tortillas
Mix the first 5 ingredients together in a bowl.  Put a small amount of the mixture on the bottom of a 8 x 8 pan add a layer of corn tortillas to cover bottom of pan. Repeat process layering sauce and tortillas until mixture is gone, sprinkle with cheese and bake at 350 degrees until heated through and cheese is melted.
* this is the way I do it if I don’t have any homemade cream of mushroom soup on hand – you can also chop and sautee mushrooms with the onions
If you would like to use cream of mushroom soup in this recipe, you can find my recipe for it here. I usually make a batch and freeze it in 2-3 cup portions to be used later.  To use it in this recipe, mix two cups of soup into the chicken mixture and prepare as directed.
