Chicken Enchiladas (no cream of anything soup)

Alice C


LOL just a personal preference to stay away from cream soups in my enchiladas. Not that I'm a soup snob - I just try to avoid the extra preservatives and sodium. I hope you enjoy these. You can substitute the Monterey Jack for Mexican blend of cheeses.

How to Make Chicken Enchiladas (no cream of anything soup)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 F. Lightly spray a 9 x 13 dish with cooking spray. In a medium fry pan, cook chicken and onion together in oil until chicken is just done. Add rotel tomatoes and 1/2 pkg taco seasoning.
  2. Divide chicken mixture evenly between 8 tortillas. Add 1-1/2 tablespoons of cheese over chicken. Roll enchiladas and place seam side down in a 9 x 13 dish.
  3. In a separate sauce pan, melt butter. Stir in flour to make a roux. Stir and cook until bubbly. Add remaining 1/2 package of taco seasoning and cumin. Gradually whisk in chicken broth then bring to a boil, stirring frequently.
  4. Remove from heat. Stir in sour cream and green chilies. Pour sauce evenly over enchiladas. Top with 3/4 cup cheese. Bake for 20 minutes until cheese is melted and sauce around the edges of the baking dish is bubbly.
  5. Note - this makes a lot of sauce. I put my 9 x 13 pan on a cookie sheet when baking.
