Method

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a non-stick frying pan heat canola oil. Drop one tortilla at a time into the hot oil and fry until softened, turning once during frying. Drain on paper towels.

Spread 1 cup of the sauce in an ungreased 9-by-13-inch baking dish.

Fill each tortilla with some shredded chicken, shredded cheese, and chopped onion. Roll tortillas with filling and place seam side down in the baking dish in one layer. Pour 2 cups of the sauce over enchiladas. Sprinkle with more cheese and bake until warm, about 15 minutes.

Serve with a dollop of crema Mexicana or sour cream, chopped green onions, and slices of avocado.
