  • 2 (11 ounce) cans whole tomatillos, drained
  • 2 cups diced white onion, divided
  • ¾ cup packed fresh cilantro
  • 2 small cloves garlic
  • 1 serrano or jalapeño chile, chopped and seeded if desired
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1½ teaspoons ground cumin
  • 16 (5 to 6 inch) corn tortillas
  • 4 cups frozen diced potatoes
  • 2 cups shredded Mexican blend cheese, divided


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Combine tomatillos, 1 cup onion, cilantro, garlic, chile, lime juice and cumin in a blender; puree on high until smooth, about 1 minute.
  3. Spread ½ cup of the sauce in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Layer 4 tortillas over the sauce. Top with 1 cup potatoes, ½ cup cheese and ¼ cup of the remaining onion. Repeat the layers twice. Top with the remaining tortillas, potatoes and onion. Spread the remaining sauce on top.
  4. Coat a large piece of foil with cooking spray and cover the baking dish tightly. Bake the enchiladas for 10 minutes. Remove the foil and sprinkle on the remaining ½ cup cheese. Continue baking until the cheese is melted and the edges are starting to brown, 15 to 20 minutes longer.
  • To make ahead: Refrigerate sauce (Step 2) for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
