We love Mexican food. This is my version of chicken enchiladas. It's one of my go to recipes when I have roast chicken left over. I developed the recipe when I decided to use less of things like canned soup in my cooking. It looks like a lot of ingredients but they are all things that I usually have on hand. It comes together quickly.

  5. Roll and place tightly in a casserole dish
  6. Now make the sauce
  7. place oil and flour in skillet and cook for a minute or two, do not brown
  8. Slowly stir in chicken stock until it is a sauce consistency, you may need more or less than the 2 cups
  9. Add the chopped green chilies, salt, pepper and cumin and let simmer to blend the flavors for about 5 minutes
  10. Stir in the sour cream and heat through but do not boil or it will break
