White Enchiladas

I have a long list of bookmarked recipes to try..there is just to many good things out there in blog land! I finally got around to making this dish wich comes from Eat at Home. I love her recipes because most of the ingredients I already have on hand and she is always making something that I either loved growing up and forgot about or a new dish that needs to be tried.
This was a real winner in the house and it's a snap to put together. I made 8 homemade tortillas instead of 10 storebought and that worked out perfect for us. The sauce is just delicious and had us all wishing I made a double batch.

White Enchiladas..serves 4-6
10 flour bought or Homemade
2 cups Shredded Jack Cheese
2 cups Cooked Chicken; Shredded
1/2 Onion; Diced..I left out
3 TBL Butter
3 TBL Flour
1 can Chicken Brother..1 3/4-2 cups
1 cup sour Cream
1 7oz can Diced Green Chilis

Pre heat oven to 425 or 220 celcius. Mix together 1 cup of the cheese,the chicken and the onion. Place an equal amount of the mixture into each tortilla, roll up and place seam side down into a 9x13 pan.

In a skillet or saucepan,melt the butter. Stir in flour and cook for 1 minute. Add the chicken broth, whisking until smooth. Cook over medium heat until it thickens and bubbles. Stir in sour cream and green chilis. Pour oer the top of the enchiladas; Sprinkle top with remaining shredded cheese. Bake for 20-25 minutes.

Sonya, I have got to quit reading your blog at 5 am. I am always starving. And I'm pretty sure its not acceptable to consume white enchiladas for breakfast :)

Sonya said...

I love these. My oldest daughter started making them. We had always used beef and corn tortillas. Now, this is the main "go to" dish when we don't know what to fix for supper. And no one complains!

Glad you were able to come up with the ingredients.
