Green Chile Chicken Enchiladas

     Just in time for your Cinco de Mayo celebration, these Green Chile Chicken Enchiladas from Sargento are creamy, filling and very easy to make.  I tucked 7 enchiladas into my 12 inch oven, with 12 briquettes in a ring around the bottom and 24 on the lid, in 20 minutes they were bubbling, heated through and ready for their final topping of cheese.  If you like artichokes you'll really fall for their tangy and unusual flavor.  On the mild side and oozing with cheese, this is a great all round Tex Mex dutch oven dinner. 

Green Chile Chicken Enchiladas
2 cups 4 Cheese Mexican shredded cheese, divided
1 cup cooked, shredded chicken
1/2 cup canned artichoke hearts (not marinated), roughly chopped
