When Cinco de Mayo and National Enchilada Day join forces, delicious things happen. Even if you’re not celebrating either holiday, this enchilada dip — packed with green chiles, chicken, and cheese — will be the most popular dish on the table at your next party. Making enchiladas isn’t hard, per se, but they do require a bit of legwork (sometimes you just don’t want to fill and roll all those tortillas!).

Take a Trip to Greece with This Sheet Pan Chicken Souvlaki

To be clear, this method doesn’t work with any cut of chicken, but it reliably turns skin-on, bone-in chicken thighs into crispy, juicy cooked chicken, perfect for eating straight from the pot.
