Creamy Chicken Enchiladas

One of my favorite Mexican dishes (besides chimichangas) is enchiladas. This is one of those recipes that everyone loves - even the pickiest ones! It's not spicy and has a wonderful creamy sauce that holds it together. It's the perfect weekend meal that can be whipped up in no time!

*You can cook the chicken for this recipe two ways. You can roast a pair of chicken breasts in the oven. Drizzle olive oil on top, season with salt and pepper and cook for 35-45 minutes.

* Or you can boil the chicken until done.

*Or you can use store-bought roast chicken.

*It depends on how much time you have to prepare it and what flavor you expect from your chicken. Broiled and broiled chicken will give you the best flavor.

*Once the chicken is cooked through, you'll want to shred it using two forks. Or if you have a stand mixer, put the chicken in the mixing bowl and mix until finely chopped using the spatula.


°2 cups shredded cooked chicken (store-bought roast chicken can be used)

°1 cup grated Monterey Jack cheese (or mozzarella)

°Salt, pepper, adobo seasoning, to taste

°10 flour tortillas (taco size)

°3 tablespoons of butter

°3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

°Half a cup of chicken broth

°1 cup sour cream

°4 ounces green bell pepper, diced (do not drain)

°1 cup grated Monterey Jack cheese


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F . Spray a 9" x 13" baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

In a medium bowl, combine 2 cups shredded cooked chicken, 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese, salt, pepper and Adobo seasoning to taste.

Spoon chicken mixture into each of 10 tortillas.

Roll them all up and put them in the prepared baking dish.

In a medium saucepan, melt 3 tablespoons of butter.

Whisk in 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour and cook and thicken for 1 minute (do not let it burn).

Add 2 cups of chicken broth and stir until smooth.

Stir in 1 cup sour cream and 4 ounces diced green pepper. Be sure not to let the mixture boil.

Remove the sauce from the heat and pour it over the enchiladas.

Top with 1 cup grated Monterey Jack cheese.

Bake for 20-25 minutes.

If you like, you can turn the grill to high heat and broil for a minute or two until the cheese is brown and slightly crispy.

Enjoy !
