By Rachael DeVaux



  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 organic chicken breasts
  • 1 jar salsa verde
  • Tortillas (I used Siete GF cassava flour, but any work)
  • 1 jar of Siete enchilada sauce
  • Cheese (I always use goats cheese bc I’m lactose intolerant and found that I can digest goats milk without any issues)


  • Fresh cilantro
  • Limes
  • Red chili flakes
  • Dairy free sour cream (Kite Hill)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a large pot, heat oil on medium and add onions. Sauté for 5 minutes.
  • Trim chicken breasts and slice in half, lengthwise to make thin. Add to pot along with garlic and sear on either side, about 3-4 min each.
  • Pour in salsa verde, cover with a lid, reduce heat to medium low and let cook for 10 minutes. Once done, remove only chicken breasts and shred with two forks or a stand mixer. Add back to pot.
  • Heat tortillas in skillet until slightly golden. 
  • Spray baking dish was oil, then fill tortilla with chicken mixture, a few spoonfuls enchilada sauce, and some shredded cheese. Tuck seam underneath and repeat until all chicken is gone. 
  • Pour remaining enchilada sauce over the top, then add shredded cheese. Bake for 30 min, then top with fresh cilantro, red chili flakes & limes!

    I will make these 100 more times. Adding them to the rotation! They were fulll of taste and so good. The only modification was to make my own enchilada sauce from scratch. It’s really simple and came out lovely! Thx for another great recipe!

    1. I think she normally uses the Trader Joe’s brand salsa verde! At least from what I’ve seen from her other taco recipes.
