In a large bowl, stir together the chicken, enchilada sauce, cheese, green chiles and onion. Then fill each tortilla, roll them up and place in a baking tray.

Make the cheese sauce in a pan by melting butter and whisking in flour. Then pour in the chicken broth, whisk to combine and allow to simmer. Stir in the sour cream, and when bubbling, stir in the cheese and stir until melted.

Pour the sauce over the enchiladas and bake for 25-30 mins.

Garnish and enjoy!

Best tortillas for these White Chicken Enchiladas

I used flour tortillas for these creamy chicken enchiladas, they roll up well and crisp up nicely. You can use corn tortillas, if you wish, they are slightly more healthy as some flour tortillas contained refined flour and lard.

What to serve with these enchiladas

You can serve these creamy green chile enchiladas on their own, they are super hearty. But you could also marry these up with Mexican rice, sliced avocados or a fresh green salad.

Can you freeze these White Chicken Enchiladas

These creamy chicken enchiladas freeze really well. Freezing the enchiladas and the sauce separately means the enchiladas don’t get soggy.

Make the recipe up until step 8, allow the sauce to cool, then freeze separately.
