    12 flour tortillas

    8 oz. sour cream

    4 oz. chopped green chile

    4 to 6 green onions, chopped,

    including 2 or 3 inches of the stem

    1 8oz. can cream of chicken soup

    1/2 to 1 lb. grated Longhorn,

    Cheddar cheese or Queso Fresco

    vegetable oil or lard


    To cook enchiladas, soft fry the tortillas and drain. Roll cheese in each tortilla and fasten with a toothpick. Mix the remaining ingredients together to make a sauce. Spread a layer of the enchilada sauce in the bottom of a 9 x 13 baking pan. Add rolled tortillas and cover with the remaining sauce. Be sure to cover all tortillas with sauce. Sprinkle top with more cheese and bake Enchiladas at 350 degrees for 20 to 30 minutes or till cheese is bubbly.

    I make chicken enchiladas during the holiday season here is my easy to make recipe. I used to boil the chicken and make my own sauce but this is much better.

    Kikki's Chicken Enchiladas

    1 roasted chicken from the deli section of your local grocery store

    2 pkgs of Mexican three or four blend cheeses

    2 cans chopped olives

    1 large can Las Palmas red enchilada sauce (mild)

    2tblspns of cornstarch made into a slurry with hot water

    1 cup of chicken broth

    1 pkg corn tortillas

    Shred the chicken into pieces small enough to roll into enchilada size. Open the can of ready made enchilada sauce into a large sauce pot and add the cornstarch mixture and chicken broth to the pot. Make sure that you mix the corn starch and water in a cup first stirring it until the mixture is frre of lumps. Next in a small fry pan add a lttle bit of vegetable spray and heat your tortillas until they are pliable(bendable) then add them to your enchilada sauce dipping them just until covered then remove them with a spatula or tongs whichever you prefer and place them onto a plate. Repeat this process until you have stacked several at a time. Now you are ready to assemble them. Use a cookie sheet or large casserole pan. Place some sauce on the bottom of the pan then add your tortilla. Place some chicken in the middle of the tortilla then add your cheese and olives. Next you roll the tortilla into a small burrito without folding the end leaving boyth ends open. Repeat this process unitl you have filled uup the pan. Ladle some sauce over the top and then sprinkle more cheese and olives and now you are done. Place some foil over the top and bake in a preheated oven at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes-just until the cheese is melted. You can substitute the corn tortillas for flour just use the small tortillas instead of the large burrito size and skip the fry pan process. I hope this works for you.

    8 oz sour cream

    1/4 c. flour

    2Tbs Margarine (melted)

    1 can Chicken broth

    1 can green chiles

    3 chicken breasts cooked and cubed or shredded

    1 c. shredded cheese (I like Monteray Jack but Colby Jack or cheddar works too.)

    8 flour tortillas

    Make a paste with melted margarine and flour in a saucepan over med/high heat

    Add broth and wisk to form a thin gravy, simmer

    Add sour cream and mix well, simmer

    Add green chiles


    Place 2 Tbs chicken and 2 Tbs cheese on flour tortilla and roll.

    Place in a baking pan, top with sauce and bake at 350 for 25-30 min

    This is my sister's recipe and I love it. You can add the chiles to the meat instead of in the sauce if you prefer.
