Ingredient List


  • 3 Old El Paso™ Super Soft Flour Tortillas, cut into 1 cm strips
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/2 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 large red onion, chopped
  • 1 jar (344 g) Old El Paso™ Cooking Sauce for Enchiladas
  • 450 ml chicken stock
  • 450 g cooked chicken or turkey, shredded
  • 1 large handful fresh coriander, chopped

To Serve

  • 6 tablespoons soured cream
  • 1 avocado, peeled, stone removed and diced


  1. Preheat the oven to 200 ºC (180 ºC for fan assisted ovens), gas mark 6. Place the tortilla strips onto an ungreased baking sheet and mist with cooking spray. Bake for 5 to 6 minutes or until golden brown and crunchy. Set aside to cool.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large non-stick saucepan and cook the onion over a medium heat for 5 minutes or until just softened. Pour in the enchilada sauce and chicken broth and bring to a boil. Turn down to a simmer, add the chicken and cook for 10 to 15 minutes, until the onion is tender and the chicken is fully heated through. Remove from heat, stir in the coriander and ladle into bowls. Serve garnished with the tortilla strips, soured cream and avocado.
