    • Spread a thin layer of the verde sauce on the bottom of a baking dish.
    • Fill each tortilla with shredded chicken and a sprinkle of cheese. Roll up and place seam-side down in the baking dish.
  4. Bake:
    • Pour the remaining verde sauce over the enchiladas, ensuring they are well-covered.
    • Sprinkle with any remaining cheese.
    • Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
