Anyone else love Enchiladas but sometimes you don’t want the typical red sauce or green sauce ones? Well, I have just the recipe for you that its creamy and delicious! AND It has GREEN CHILIS in it…. Yep… if you love green chilis as mush as I do… then you’re going to love this. My two little peanuts also LOVED this dish. I used mild green chilis, but if you like things spicer, then use HOT green chilis.
So lets get to making these bad boys!
Heres what you’ll need…
- 2 cups shredded, cooked chicken or use a store-bought rotisserie chicken
- 10 flour tortillas (taco size)
- 2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
- 3 tbsp butter
- 3 tbsp flour
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 1 medium white onion chopped
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 bag of frozen green chiles (Defrost before)
- salt & pepper to taste
- 1/2 tbs of Garlic salt
- 9 x 13 Baking dish
First you are going to want to cook your chicken. I like to use raw chicken tenderloins and boil them until cooked. I season the water with salt, pepper, and garlic salt.
Next, preheat oven to 350F degrees and grab you’re baking dish. Spray your baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
Once chicken is cooked, you’ll want to shred it using two forks. Or if you have a stand mixer, put your chicken in the mixing bowl and mix that baby up until shredded.
Add in 1 cup of shredded cheese to the shredded chicken along with salt, pepper and garlic salt. Next, add in your diced white onion.
Place chicken mixture in each of the flour tortillas and roll those babies up and place in 9 x 13 baking dish.
Now comes the delicious creamy sauce. In a medium sauce pan, melt your butter on medium heat. DO NOT BURN. Whisk in flour and let cook and thicken for 1 minute (don’t let this burn either).
Add chicken broth and whisk until smooth. Stir in sour cream and green chiles. Be sure not to let the mixture boil.
Take sauce off the heat and pour it over the enchiladas. Top with remaining shredded cheese and remember not to eat yet, even though you really want to!
Bake for about 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees. If you’d like, you can turn the broiler on high and broil these for a minute or two until cheese is slightly browned and bubbly.
Let rest for 5-10 minutes before serving so they set. No wants a mushy mess on their plate when served to hot. Serve with avocado slices, lettuce, tomatoes, and black beans. Or whatever you like!
Enjoy- M xoxo
