Chicken Enchiladas

I've had this one in my files for some's finally getting posted!

I prefer Mexican food over all other ethnic dishes. And this is definitely a favorite!

It's delicious and easy and we enjoy it often. Makes a great company dish also.

Sorry I can't post a picture of these delicious eats after they're cooked, and cheese is melted.

When I made these, I put them in the freezer for my daughter and family.

They are SO tasty and easy to put together. I love that they're moist too.

AND yes...they can be frozen ahead too! 

But they're not in Deb's freezer for long, because her whole family loves them and they get eaten quickly.

(From The Better Baker)

1 Tb. butter
1 (4 ozs) can diced green chilies
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 (10 oz.) can cream of mushroom soup
1/2 c. sour cream
1-1/2 c. cooked cubed chicken
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese
6 - 12 flour tortillas
1/4 c. milk

Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease 9" X 13" X 2" baking dish.  In saucepan over medium heat, melt butter and saute green chilies and garlic powder.  Add cream of mushroom soup and sour cream; mix well. Reserve half of the sauce; set aside. 

To remaining half of sauce, add chicken and 1/2 c. of cheese. Stir. Fill tortillas and roll up; place seam side down in baking dish.  In small bowl, mix the remaining sauce with milk. Spoon over tortillas and top with remaining cheese.  Bake 30 - 35 minutes or until cheese is bubbly.

Yield: 4 - 6 servings

When I don't have the chilies, I substitute salsa instead.  You can also use cream of chicken soup if you prefer it over mushroom.
