Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas

Looking for a simple and fast dinner idea? These chicken enchiladas are easy to put together and taste great. If you use a roasted chicken, it goes together even faster. I like to make my own shredded chicken. I takes a little more time, but I love the flavor. I will share how I do this in another post. 

I did not put the onions in this batch, since my stomach doesn't like them. You can change up the cheeses to suit what you like, these make a great combo.

I divided the chicken mixture among 6 flour tortillas, that is all I had on hand. I placed them in the dish with the seam side down.

 Next I made the roux.

I added the sour cream and green chilies to the roux and poured it over the tortillas. Added the remaining cheese and baked it at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Yummy!
