Years ago some friends came over and made these for us. They are fantastic, simple and a staple in my house. I hope you enjoy it.

20 Min


40 Min




3 -4 c
cooked shredded chicken
2 can(s)
cream of chicken soup
2 can(s)
diced green chilis, mild
2 c
sour cream separated
16 oz
sharp cheddar cheese shredded
flour tortillas
1 bunch
optional: green onion/ scallion, chopped fine
1/2 c
reserved cooking liquid, chicken broth or milk

Directions Step-By-Step

Spray or oil a 13x9 baking dish put aside. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
In a bowl, stir together chicken, 1 soup, 1 can chilis, half of the sour cream and half of the cheese. Mix well but leave chicken chunky.
Place enough of the filling into a flour tortilla, (Usually a couple of good blops will do it) spread it out down the middle and roll it, place in prepared pan seam side down. Do that with all of the mixture lining it up in the pan as you go.
In the same bowl, mix the other can of soup, chilis, the other half of the sour cream and the ½ cup of liquid, stir well and pour over the rolled enchiladas spreading it out to cover them evenly.
Top with the remaining cheese, I add extra cheese. Bake at 350 for about 30 mins until hot and bubbly. Sprinkle with chopped green onions if using. Let sit 10 minutes before serving.
Other suggestions: I have made this lower calorie version with no fat soups, 2% cheese, nonfat plain Greek yogurt and fat free whole wheat tortillas. It’s good.
