  • That eliminated having to poach or roast chicken breasts. Adding canned green chiles lets you decide if
  • you want more or less spice because you can choose mild or hot chiles. The cheese in the dish can be varied as
  • well. The original calls for Cheddar and
  • Monterey Jack. I used Cheddar and Pepper
  • Jack.

  • Suizas is one of those dishes that is almost better if it rests overnight and
  • the cheese sauce is added just before it goes into the oven. That makes it a perfect Cinco de Mayo dinner

  • for the decadent cream sauce, the Suiza part of the enchilada. Here’s the recipe:
