Chicken & cheese-Stuffed tortillas topped with a cheesy, creamy enchilada sauce. What's not to like?

"The.Best.Enchiladas.EVER. Good golly, these were fantastic!!!! So much healthier than the other recipes here since most of them require you fry the tortillas in LARD or worse. Simple to make and darn impossible to stop eating them! I served them with the rice cooker Mexican rice the poster has on file for a dinner full of WIN and only pan scrapings left over!"

Preparation

Melt 2 tablespoons butter and cook onions and green pepper in it until softened. Remove to a bowl. Stir chopped chicken and green chilies into onion-pepper mixture. Melt remaining 3 tablespoons of butter. Blend in flour and seasonings. Whisk in chicken broth. Cook, stirring, until sauce boils. Remove from heat; stir in sour cream and 1/2 cup cheese. Stir 1/2 cup sauce into chicken mixture. Add enchilada sauce and evaporated milk to remaining sauce and bring to simmer.

Dip each tortilla in remaining hot sauce to soften (or simply warm them over stove) and spoon chicken mixture into center of each tortilla. Roll up and arrange on 13"x9"x2" pan; repeat with all tortillas. Pour remaining sauce over tortillas. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake uncovered at 350 for about 25 minutes.

Easy to make and just great tasting. I've made these a few times, this time I made them just cheese and wow. We just love the creamy cheesey sauce. its a big favorite here.

Delicious. My husband requested that I make this again. I prepared it as mostly directed, except I used a poblano pepper instead of a bell pepper, and added mushrooms. I also used olive oil instead of butter. Yummy!

I just adore the idea of adding special ingredients to prepared sauce to make them something special! I've made this sauce before, I know it, Toss some rotisserie chicken in, add cheese and bake for a real good dinner. Even my kids loved it!

Simple to make, and an amazingly sumptuous sauce that left me wanting more and more of it. I daresay filling them with only cheese would be enough but no, you had to go and add chicken to make my tastebuds strain for more! Served with black beans, rice, and my signature avocado cream sauce just because. Absolutely terrific, well done!

Very delicious recipe with a good cream sauce to it. I used leftover chicken and my girls ate it all happily. They liked the cheese sauce very much so I will try using it to top chicken breasts too.

I used leftover turkey, this is one of those times the sauce makes the dish, wowsers! I'm stealing the sauce recipe for other things!

Serve with Spanish rice and extra sour cream. You can also prepare the 'Arroz con Pollo' recipe that I posted to cook the chicken and rice at the same time. [I posted this recipe.]
