How to Make Avacado Chicken Enchuladas

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 375. In medium sauce pan, sauté garlic in butter for about 1 minute on Medium heat. Stir in flour let it cook for about 2 minutes.

    Next, stir in the chicken broth, cumin, salt, pepper, and bring to a simmer. Remove from heat and stir in the sour cream, salsa and cilantro until smooth. (or smooth as you can get.)
  2. Prepare a 9x13 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Add about 1/2 cup sauce to bottom of the pan, and spread out until bottom of the baking dish is evenly coated.
  3. Lay out a tortilla and add chicken, shredded cheese, and avocado to the end of the tortilla and roll. Then place the rolled tortilla seam-side down and repeat until the pan is full.

    Pour the remaining sauce over the enchiladas. Cover with 1 cup of cheese and bake for about 20 minutes or until cheese is bubbling.
