How to Make Green Chile Chicken Enchiladas

Step-by-Step

  1. DIRECTIONS
    Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees. In a large bowl, combine cooked, shredded chicken with 1/2 cup enchilada sauce, 1 cup cheese, green chiles, sour cream, cream of chicken soup, and about 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and black pepper. Microwave tortillas for about 30 seconds so that they’ll be easier to roll up. Divide the mixture evenly among 8 medium sized tortillas, and roll up. Place the tortillas in a 9 x 13 inch casserole dish, seam side down. Top with remaining enchilada sauce, then cheese and top with a drained can of Rottel Tomatoes.
  2. Bake for 25 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Sprinkle enchiladas with chopped fresh cilantro and serve immediately.
  3. To make the Soup:
    In a small sauce pan, melt butter. Whisk in flour and let cook for 1-2 minutes. Slowly stir in chicken broth, then milk. Stir until it begins to thicken. Let it simmer for a few minutes. Season with a dash of salt and pepper.
