Chicken enchiladas are so yummy. I first made these years ago when my husband asked for enchiladas. He actually wanted beef, but I could only find this recipe for the chicken variety.
Now, he would just as soon have these.
This makes a big pan so it is great for a big family or even leftovers later on.
Bake it at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Grease a 3 quart baking pan.
1/4 cup chopped onion
2 Tablespoons butter
1/2 an Anaheim chili pepper or a 4 oz. can chopped chili pepper,drained
3 oz cream cheese, softened
1 Tablespoon milk
1/2 to 1 teaspoon ground cumin, depending on preference
2 cups cooked chopped chicken
12 taco or fajita size flour tortillas
10-3/4 oz can cream of chicken soup
1 cup sour cream
1 cup milk
3/4 cup shredded cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese
In a small saucepan, cook the onion in the butter until the onion is soft.
Stir in 1 Tablespoon of the chili pepper.
In a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese, 1 Tablespoon milk, and the cumin.
Add the chicken and onion mixture.
Put about 3 Tablespoons chicken mixture along the edge of a flour tortilla.
Roll up and lay in a greased 3 quart baking dish.
A 9″x13″ cake pan will work. The enchiladas will fit very snugly together.
Continue until all are made and put in pan.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Make the sauce:
Mix the 1 cup milk, cream of chicken soup, sour cream, and the rest of the chili pepper.
Spread over the enchiladas.
Cover the pan with lid or aluminum foil.
Bake for 35 minutes.
Sprinkle with cheese and bake another 5 minutes until cheese is melted.
