Ingredients

  • 2 Cups cooked chicken. (Chopped, diced, or shredded)
  • 3/4 cups chopped onion(
  • 2 cups grated Monterey jack cheese
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 4-6 Jalapenos (seeded and sliced thin)
  • 2 cups Chicken broth (I like to add a bouillon cube to broth)
  • 8 ounces sour cream
  • 1 pkg. Corn tortillas (12)
  • 4-6 Green Chilies (Diced)

Directions

  • Pre heat oven to 425
  • Filling: Boil chicken and allow to cool.
  • Mix (cooled) cooked chicken, 1-cup cheese, diced chilies, and onion in a large bowl and set aside.
  • Tortilla prep: Heat oil at medium high and dip tortillas in for approx. 5 seconds per side, place on paper bag or paper towel to drain. (I think the paper bag works best)
  • Place 3 Tbls. filling into each of the tortillas and roll. Place the rolled tortillas into a 9x13x2 pan.
  • Cream Sauce: Heat the butter or margarine in a large skillet.
  • Saute jalapenos at high heat for 2-3 minutes, reduce heat to medium high and mix in flour. Slowly add the 2 cups broth, mixing until smooth.
  • Add sour cream and continue to heat until warm and creamy. Pour sauce over rolled tortillas.
  • Cooking: Place pan on top of a sheet of aluminum foil, and put in oven. (This prevents the tortillas from getting hard on the bottom while cooking)
  • Cook for 20 minutes.
  • Carefully remove pan from oven and put remaining cheese on top and place back in oven for additional 5 minutes. Allow enchiladas to cool for 5 minutes before serving.
