What types of meals do you like to enjoy during the holidays? Enchiladas are always great for the family or when you’re having guests over and want something delicious that’s also easy to prepare. Let’s take a look at this great sour cream chicken enchilada recipe. Here are the ingredients:
- One medium, diced onion
- A ¼ cup of butter
- Eight ounces of grated cheese (Queso Fresco)
- Two tablespoons of all purpose flour
- Eight ounces of Monterey Jack cheese
- Two cups of chicken broth
- Two cups of diced, cooked chicken
- A cup of sour cream
- Twelve corn tortillas
- One or two minced jalapeños
- Vegetable cooking oil
- Salt for taste
To prepare the sauce, melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat and follow by whisking in flour and salt. Cook for about one minute and then whisk in the chicken broth, slowly. Continue with the stirring until everything has thickened and then whisk in the sour cream. Heat it up but do not let it boil. Add the jalapeños, remove from the heat, and place everything aside.
The next step is preparing the tortillas. Using a skillet that’s slightly larger in diameter than the tortillas, pour the oil until it’s about a half inch deep and then heat it up over medium heat. Dip both sides of the tortillas in the hot oil for a few seconds until it’s softened and then drain flat on a paper tower. Make sure to repeat the process for all of the tortillas you’ll be using.
Spread a ¼ cup of the sauce on a shallow baking dish so that the enchiladas don’t stick. Put some chicken, cheese, and onion in the tortilla and then roll it up with the seam side down in the pan, repeating the process for the other tortillas. Pour whatever sauce is left over the enchiladas and then follow with a sprinkling of cheese on top of each one. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, bake them for twenty minutes, and you’re ready to serve.
