Description

These were so good and pretty easy for a weekday night. My husband HATES the taste of the already-cooked canned chicken, so instead I cooked 4 chicken breasts with the previous night’s dinner and set them aside to use the next night. If you like spicy food then use hot enchilada sauce and add some jalapeno on top. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Cooked, Shredded Chicken
  • 2 cups Shredded Monterey Jack Cheese, Divided
  • 1 can (10 Oz. Size) Enchilada Sauce, Divided
  • 10 whole Soft Shell Tacos
  • 3 Tablespoons Butter
  • 3 Tablespoons Flour
  • 2 cups Chicken Broth (low Sodium Prefered)
  • 1 cup Sour Cream
  • 1 can (4 Oz. Size) Chopped Green Chiles

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Grease a 9×13 pan.

2. Mix chicken, half of the cheese, and half of the can of enchilada sauce. Roll up in tortillas and place in the pan.

3. In a sauce pan, melt butter, stir in flour and cook 1 minute. Add broth and whisk until smooth. Heat over medium heat until thick and bubbly.

4. Stir in sour cream, remaining enchilada sauce, and chilies. Do not bring to boil, you don’t want curdled sour cream.

5. Pour over enchiladas and top with remaining cheese.

6. Bake 22 minutes and then broil on high broil for 3 minutes to brown the cheese.

Per previous reviews, I added more chicken…and I put in 2 cans of enchilada sauce. It filled an 11×13 Pan and was very good!

very good. agree with Ashley—I only filled 8 large shells—maybe 10 small ones would have been right. But we loved them.

Made these last night and they were delicious! definitely adding to the rotation. I was only able to use 6 of the soft taco shells – i don’t know if mine were bigger than i was supposed to get, but only 6 would fit in my dish and i really only had enough filling for 6. regardless, it turned out great!
