We love Mexican food in our family. My hubby is a big fan of authentic Mexican cuisine, Oaxacan cuisine in particular, and I am a fan of Tex-Mex cooking. In honor of Cinco de Mayo I am sharing one of our family's favorite Mexican recipes, a simple, easy chicken enchiladas recipe, or sour cream chicken enchiladas, or as my kids liked to call it when they were little "Cream Chile Enchiladas". It's super easy to make, and is pretty mild, unless you use hot green chilies. I typically use mild or medium green chilies, especially when making it for kids. Everyone loves it... enjoy!
- 4 cups cooked chicken, diced, chopped or shredded
- 2 cups sour cream
- 2 (10 3/4-oz) cans condensed cream of chicken soup
- 2 (4 oz) cans diced green chilies
- 4 cups Colby-Jack cheese, grated
- 10 medium sized flour tortillas
- 4 green onions, sliced (optional)
In a large bowl combine chicken, soup, sour cream and green chilies. Spread a small amount in the bottom of a 9"x13" greased casserole dish.
Spread a heaping tablespoon across the center of a tortilla and top with a sprinkling of cheese. Roll up and place on sauce in casserole dish. Continue with remaining tortillas.
Spread remainder of chicken sauce over the top of tortillas and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Sprinkle with green onions if desired. Cover with foil and bake for 45 minutes, or until hot and bubbly.
HAPPY CINCO DE MAYO!!!
