I love Mexican food. One of my favourites is this creamy white chicken enchilada. It is super easy and quick to whip up using only a few simple ingredients. You can use any cooked chicken, but I prefer store-bought rotisserie chicken as it gives the most flavour. Serve these delicious enchiladas with a simple side salad for a simple, quick meal perfect for everybody!

Ingredients

3 tbsp butter

2 c. shredded, cooked chicken (can use a store-bought rotisserie chicken)

2 c. shredded Monterey Jack cheese (or mozzarella)

3 tbsp flour

1 c. sour cream

2 c. chicken broth

salt & pepper & Adobo seasoning, to taste

10 flour tortillas (taco size)

1 (4 ounces) can (diced) green chiles

HOW TO MAKE EASY CREAMY WHITE CHICKEN ENCHILADAS

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees F. Using a nonstick cooking spray, grease a 9 x 13-inch baking dish.

Step 2: Combine the cooked, shredded chicken, 1 cup shredded cheese, salt, pepper, and adobo seasoning in a medium-sized bowl.

Step 3: Into each flour tortillas, place the chicken mixture. Roll the tortillas and place them in the prepared baking dish.

Step 4: Melt the butter in a medium saucepan. Whisk the flour in the melted butter and cook for about a minute. Pour in the chicken broth and stir well until smooth.

Step 5: Add the sour cream to the pan along with the green chiles. Make sure not to bring the mixture to a boil.

Step 6: Remove the sauce from the heat. Pour this over the enchiladas and sprinkle the rest of the shredded cheese on top.

Step 7: Place in the preheated oven and bake the enchiladas for approximately 20 to 25 minutes.

Step 8: This step is optional. Broil the enchiladas on high for about 1 to 2 minutes until the cheese is bubbly and turned slightly browned.
