Grilled Chicken Enchilada Stack

  • ½ teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cayenne
  • 2 ½ cups shredded grilled chicken breast
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 12 (6-inch) white corn tortillas
  • ¾ cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • ¾ cup shredded pepper jack cheese
  • 1 ½ cups enchilada sauce
  • Garnish: ¼ cup cilantro leaves, ½ cup cubed avocado, 1 tablespoon thinly sliced jalapeno

Preheat your grill to 350 degrees. Coat a large cast iron skillet with the olive oil.

Combine the chili powder, ground cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and cayenne in a medium bowl. Add the shredded chicken and toss to coat.

Heat the chicken stock in a saucepan over medium heat.

Working with one tortilla at a time, dip in the warmed stock and then place in the skillet. Repeat with three more tortillas to cover the bottom. Top the tortillas with half of the seasoned shredded chicken. Sprinkle ¼ cup cheddar cheese and ¼ cup pepper jack cheese over the chicken. Repeat the process with 4 more tortillas. Top with the rest of the chicken. Sprinkle ¼ cup cheddar cheese and ¼ cup pepper jack cheese over the chicken. Repeat the process with the additional tortillas.

Cover with aluminum foil and bake or grill for 15 minutes. Uncover and spread the enchilada sauce over the top. Sprinkle on the remaining cheese. Bake or grill for an additional 5 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
