Original recipe yields 6 servings



  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Fry tortillas (one at a time) for 5 seconds on each side to soften and make them pliable. Add more oil to pan as needed. Drain between layers of paper towel and keep warm.
  3. Divide chicken, 10 ounces of Monterey Jack cheese, and onion among the 12 tortillas. Roll up each tortilla and place seam side down in a greased baking pan.
  4. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the flour and whisk until mixture begins to boil. Slowly add the broth, stirring with a whisk until thickened. Mix in the sour cream and chiles, heat thoroughly but do not boil, stirring occasionally. Pour mixture over the enchiladas.
  5. Bake in pre-heated oven for 20 minutes or until heated through. Top with remaining Monterey Jack cheese and bake for 5 more minutes. Garnish with chopped green onions and cilantro.

Outstanding! My dinner guest, a die hard red enchilada sauce fan, was swept away by these enchiladas and proclaimed these her new favorite (me too). Not to mention, I've never known her to eat much and she all but licked the plate clean! Genuine, simple and understated flavors, that all blended together perfectly. Just delicious, and just as written, "decorated" with a plop of sour cream. Can't wait to make this again--and I WILL make this again!



This recipe received 5 stars from my super picky husband. I did adapt it a bit. I used about 3/4 cup green chili salsa instead of the green chiles in the cream sauce, and I put the small can of green chiles in with the filling. I also created a bed of cooked white rice with whole corn and diced roasted red peppers in the baking dish, and then put the enchiladas on it, which soaked up the extra cream sauce nicely and made a yummy side dish. It might have been too much cream sauce otherwise.



This recipe turned out great. I used a rotisserie chicken from the deli and shredded all the meat off of it. For the sauce I used a 14 oz. can of chicken broth,1/2 cup sour cream & 1/2 cup greek style yogurt to cut some of the fat. I also added some garlic powder,cumin, & paprika.When I rolled the tortillas with the chicken and cheese, I spooned a little bit of sauce on top before rolling them.Baked them at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.I used a 9x12 dish and was able to squeeze a couple extra tortillas in there.My husband loved this dish!! Not runny at all, just delicious!
