The Best Damn Chicken Enchiladas Ever!

Okay, so since I’ve been getting great responses from my previous food post I’m adding another to the collection for y’all to try! Now I’m such an enchilada fan, I looooooooove the sour cream sauce at Gringo’s for the longest I’ve been tweaking my sauce recipe and I’veImage finally perfected it, now time to share with the masses. I made a big batch on Tuesday (18) and the pan was cleared by kids and nieces and nephew;i hope all of you love it as much as they did.





3 Tbl. unsalted butter


3 Tbl. flour


1 (14.5 oz.) can low-sodium chicken broth


1 c. sour cream


1/4 – 1/2 c. green salsa, depending on how spicy you want it


    or 1 (4 oz.) can diced green chiles




rotisserie chicken, shredded


    or season a few chicken breasts with taco seasoning


    and bake until done, then shred


2-3 c. Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
8-10 corn or flour tortillas


chopped cilantro, onions



For the enchilada sauce: melt butter over medium heat in a large skillet.  Whisk in the flour, one Tablespoon at a time, to prevent lumps from forming.  Cook a minute or two to cook off the flour taste, stirring occasionally.  Gradually whisk in the chicken broth and whisk until smooth.  Continue cooking until thickened, about 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Once it reaches desired thickness, remove from heat and stir in the sour cream and green salsa; set aside.  Heat tortillas for 10-15 seconds in the microwave until pliable.  Divide shredded chicken between tortillas, top each with a little bit of cheese and cilantro.  Roll up and place seam-side down in a 9×13-inch  pan.  Cover with the enchilada sauce and top with remaining cheese.  Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until bubbly.  Broil for a minute or two at the end if you want the cheese to brown. 


If you don’t have a taco seasoning pack on hand use salt, pepper, chili powder and fresh garlic.
