Ingredients

1
whole rotisserie chicken, shredded (or dice and brown 3 lg. chicken breasts)
1
sm. can diced green chiles (or more to taste)
4
chopped green onions
2 can(s)
cream of chicken soup
2 c
sour cream
1
lg. can green enchilada sauce
2 c
shredded cheddar cheese
1 tsp
salt
14-16
corn tortillas
2 Tbsp
oil

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Flash fry the tortillas, one at a time with a small amount of oil over medium heat. The first side should take 15-20 seconds, and the second side should take around 10 seconds. Set aside on a plate to cool for easy handling.
2
In a large bowl mix together shredded chicken, green chiles, onion, 1 can of the soup, 1 C. sour cream, 1/2 C. of the enchilada sauce, and 1 1/2 C. of the shredded cheese.
3
In a smaller bowl mix together the remaining can of soup, cup of sour cream, enchilada sauce, and salt.
4
Spoon around 3 Tbsp of the chicken mixture into each tortilla, roll up and place into a 9x13 baking dish.
5
Continue until there is no space left in the baking dish.
6
Pour the sauce mixture over all of the filled tortillas. Sprinkle remaining cheese over the top.
7
Cover with foil and bake at 375* for 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake an additional 10-15 minutes, until bubbly.
8
Extra filling freezes well. I often layer it between corn tortillas for a quick weeknight casserole.
