White Chicken Enchiladas with Sour Cream Sauce


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.

  2. Deb

    You had me at “sour cream!” Have you ever tried this with green enchilada sauce?

  3. Michelle

    I make one similar but you don’t need to cook the sauce-
    Cooked shredded chicken (2-4 cups enough to fill 8 shells)
    Small can diced green chills
    1 tbsp dry taco seasoning (more if you like it spicy)
    1/2 cup hidden valley ranch
    1/4 cup sour cream
    1 cups shredded Mexican cheese ( for filling)
    2 cups shredded Mexican cheese for topping
    8 flour shells
    Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl and divide between 8 shells and put into greased 9×13 pan cover with foil
    Bake at 375 for 25 min
    Take out too with remaining 2 cups cheese and bake uncovered for 5 more min! Enjoy!

    Instead of sour cream, try Greek yogurt! It tastes fabulous!

  17. Sharon R.

    I made these today, delish. I made my own stock from bone in chicken breasts i roasted. I also added some cilantro and cayenne for some spice.
    Great recipe. I will do these again. Looking for a great recipe for enchaladas in red sauce as well.

    • Lina D

      Thanks for sharing Sharon! Sounds delicious!

  18. Justine

    This recipe is wonderful. I added some sauteed zucchini, onion and corn. I also added sauteed red pepper to the sauce. Delicious!!!!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Great! Thanks for your feedback!

  19. Roxanne

    Delicious! I changed it up a bit, too. I’m not a big cumin fan, and I was worried that the chicken might get a little dry when cooking. I didn’t want to add the calories of soup, so I 1.) cut the cumin to 1 tsp 2.) used plain cheeses instead of Monterrey jack 3.) added 1/4 cup pico de Gallo and 1/4 cup tomatillo to the chicken to spice it up and keep it moist. WOW! Wonderful! 👍

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Great thanks so much for sharing!

  20. Peggy

    Just cleaned up after having this for super. Everyone liked it very much.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Hooray! Thanks so much Peggy for reporting back!

  21. Cindy S

    This recipe is excellent. My whole family and friends love it! You can also use corn tortillas if desired, i love both. Yummy!!!
