Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas

I have always avoided making enchiladas for some reason. I always thought they would be way too hard to make!

Well as it turns out, they aren’t hard to make at all! They are actually pretty simple once you find the right recipe.

These turned out so creamy and flavorful, they are definitely going to be added into the rotation! They also got eaten up in no time. I always love it when this happens.


  • 8-10 Small Flour Tortillas
  • 3 Cups Chicken, Shredded or Chopped
  • 2 CUPS shredded Pepper Jack Cheese.
  • 2 CUPS shredded Monterey Jack Cheese
  • 3 Tbsp Unsalted Butter

  4. Fill tortillas with this mixture and roll each one up then place seam side down in prepared pan.
  5. Melt the butter in a skillet.
  6. Sprinkle flour over melted butter and whisk to combine.
