  1. For the salsa: Under the broiler and a watchful eye, place whole tomatillos, onion, garlic and jalapenos in a glass baking dish. As they start to turn black and roast, flip them over so all sides are covered. This only takes about 5 minutes. Transfer the roasted vegetables and any juices to either a food processor or blender and add cumin, salt, cilantro and lime juice. Pulse to desired consistency.
  2. For the Enchiladas: In a medium saucepan, heat olive oil. Add onions and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cumin and cook for another minute. Sprinkle on flour and then gradually add the chicken broth. Stir over a low simmer until the liquid thickens. Turn off the heat. Add half of the tomatillo salso, the fresh chopped cilantro, and the shredded chicken. Season to taste with black pepper.
  3. Assembly: Change oven temp to 350. Smear the bottom of a large glass baking dish with salsa. Pour the rest of the salsa on a large plate. Take the tortillas and flash them over a stove top flame, or under the broiler so they get a little crispy. Place the tortilla on the plate of salsa, add chicken filling and cheese and then roll like a cigar. Place in the baking dish and repeat until the dish is full. Pour the rest of the salsa over the tortillas and top with the remaining cheese. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes. Enjoy!
