Bubbling Cauldron of Ingredients:

  • 10-12 soft corn tortillas
  • 2 cups shredded Monterey Jack or Cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup roasted and chopped green chilies (can use canned if fresh is unavailable)
  • 2 cups green enchilada sauce (store-bought or homemade)
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt to taste
  • Fresh cilantro, chopped (for garnish)
  • Sour cream (optional, for serving)

Steps to Summon Your Monster Bites:

Chili Filling Concoction:

  • In a medium skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat.
  • Add the chopped onions and garlic, sautéing until the onions are translucent.
  • Stir in the chopped green chilies and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Add salt to taste. Set aside.

Enchilada Sauce Spell:

  • In a shallow pan or skillet, warm the green enchilada sauce over low heat.

Assembling the Monster Bites:

  • Heat the tortillas on a skillet or directly on the burner until they’re warm and slightly charred.
  • Dip each tortilla into the green enchilada sauce, ensuring both sides are coated.
  • Lay the saucy tortilla flat, sprinkle a generous amount of cheese in the center, followed by a spoonful of the chili-onion mixture.
  • Fold the tortilla in half, taco-style, and place it on a serving plate.
  • Continue with the remaining tortillas and filling.

Finishing the Feast:

  • Once all your Monster Bites are assembled, drizzle some extra enchilada sauce on top.
  • Garnish with fresh cilantro and serve with a dollop of sour cream.

Ghastly Presentation Tip: For an added Halloween touch, place sliced black olives or halved cherry tomatoes on top to make them look like creepy eyes!

With every bite, you’ll unleash a burst of cheesy, chili goodness that’s sure to be a hit at any Halloween feast. Happy haunting and feasting!
