Sour Cream Enchiladas

Iย don’tย know about your family, but my family LOVES Mexican food. Okay, probably not my kids since they are still little, but my hubby and I are definite fanatics! Yum!! I made these last night and they were a huge hit. My kids ate them up too, so that is a winner in itself right?? These made enough for both of us to have them again for lunch the following day!!



  • 1 lb chicken breast, diced (about 3 medium breasts)
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 8-10 flour torillas, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Mexican cheese
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 15 oz. chicken broth
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 (4 oz) can green chiles




  1. In a medium skillet, cook chicken and onion in the vegetable oil until chicken is cooked through and onion is tender. *I added 1 tbsp homemade taco seasoning for added flavor at this step!
  2. Divide chicken evenly between tortillas.
  3. Place 1-2 tbsp cheese on top of chicken in tortilla. Roll tortilla closed and place seam side down in a greased 9×13 baking dish.
  4. In medium skillet, melt butter.
  5. Add in flour to create a roux. Allow to cook about 2 minutes.
  6. Slowly add in chicken broth and heat until bubbly and thickened.
  7. Remove from heat and stir in sour cream and chiles. Pour sauce evenly over tortillas.
  8. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top of sauce.
  9. Bake in a preheated oven (400) for about 20 minutes, or until bubbly.
