White Sauce Chicken Enchiladas

This is so easy to make and very delicious.  Make sure you use small tortillas.  I used medium to large size and they were too big and didn’t fit on the plate very well.

I also think that if you like it more spicy, use Pepper Jack cheese.  I didn’t think the chilies gave it much heat at all.

  • 2 1/2 cups cooked and shredded chicken
  • 3 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese, divided
  • 10 small soft flour tortillas
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 (4-oz.) can diced green chilies (I used milk, but you can use whatever heat you like.)

Preheat over to 350 degrees.

Combine shredded chicken and 1 cup cheese.  Fill tortillas with mixture and roll each one.  Place in a greased 9 x 13″ casserole dish.

Melt butter in a pan over medium heat.   Stir in flour and whisk for a minute over heat until slightly thickened.  Add broth and whisk together.  Cook over heat until it’s thick and bubbles up.  Take off heat and let cool slightly before adding in sour cream.  (If too hot, it may curdle.)

Pour mixture over enchiladas and add remaining cheese to top.  Bake for 20 to 23 minutes then broil for 3 minutes to brown the cheese.

Serves 6.
