Love enchiladas? 🙋
Try these delicious creamy White Chicken Enchiladas with a flavorful green chile & sour cream sauce! I’ve used a prepared rotisserie chicken for convenience, but feel free to use leftover chopped chicken instead. This recipe comes together easily and was a big hit with my family!
White Chicken Enchiladas
Adapted from GonnaWantSeconds.com, serves 4-6
- 3 cups shredded chicken (I used a rotisserie chicken.)
- 1 cup pepper jack cheese, shredded (divided)
- 2 cups Mexican blend cheese, shredded (divided)
- 2 teaspoons ground cumin
- 8 medium flour tortillas
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 3 tablespoons flour
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 cup canned green chile salsa (or small can green chilies)
- 3 green onions, chopped
1.) Season chicken with cumin. Mix with 1/2 cup of Mexican blend shredded cheese and 1/2 cup pepper jack shredded cheese.
2.) Spray a 9×13 casserole pan with non-stick spray. Roll each tortilla with chicken mixture and place in a pan with the seam side down.
3.) Melt butter in a pan and in sprinkle flour. Whisk until smooth for about one minute. Remove from heat and whisk in chicken broth. Place back on heat until thickened and bubbly.
4.) Let cool for at least 5-10 minutes, then combine with sour cream. (Don’t skip this step, as sour cream may curdle if you don’t let mixture cool.) Stir in green chili salsa as well.
5.) Pour sauce over enchiladas and top with remaining shredded cheese.
6.) Bake at 350 degrees for about 20-25 minutes until bubbly and slightly browned on top. Add chopped green onion before serving.
These enchiladas are so good! They were gobbled up immediately!
I LOVED the added flavor of seasoning the chicken and also using pepper jack cheese. If your family doesn’t enjoy spicy at all, then just omit that type of cheese and use all Mexican blend cheese.
