White Chicken Enchiladas with Green Chile Sour Cream Sauce
A super easy and simple enchilada recipe with a heavenly creamy white sauce that’s completely homemade!
I’m always in the mood for enchiladas but I always feel a little bit guilty about not using a homemade enchilada sauce. I usually get the Trader Joe’s red enchilada sauce but I feel like I’m cheating! But now, I’ve finally found an enchilada recipe with a delicious creamy white sauce that is completely homemade.
You first start by filling the tortillas with a bit of shredded chicken and Monterey Jack cheese. I use Trader’s Joe’s jalapeno Monterey Jack – my absolute favorite cheese in the world. Then you make the sauce by starting with a roux and then adding some chicken broth, sour cream, and green chiles. These simple ingredients create such a creamy sauce with just the right amount of spice from the chiles. Once the sauce is poured over the enchiladas, they are topped off with a little more jalapeno Monterey Jack and then they’re baked for about 20-25 minutes.
It’s simple, quick, delicious, and completely homemade.
