Easy Chicken Enchiladas {recipe}

Hello! Yesterday was a busy day! I took dinner to a family that just had twins ~ a boy & a girl! So sweet! We also had the missionaries from our church over for dinner. I knew exactly what I wanted to make ~ chicken enchiladas! Buuuut I couldn’t find the recipe anywhere! I had it on a piece of paper with my cookbooks, & it was gone! Luckily I found it in an email I sent my mom 5 years ago! I knew there was a good reason that I never delete any emails! haha! 😉 So today I am excited to be sharing one of our family’s favorite recipes ~ easy chicken enchiladas! Yum!

For sauce, cook onion and garlic in butter or margarine until the onion is tender. Stir flour into sour cream, add to onion mixture. Stir in water and chili peppers all at once. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Remove from heat and stir in 1 cup of cheese.

For filling, stir 1/2 cup of the sauce into cooked chicken.

Wrap tortillas in foil. Heat for 10-15 minutes in 350 oven or until they are soft. (You could also pop them in the microwave for a 30-45 seconds instead.) Put about 1/4 cup of filling in each tortilla, roll up and place seam side down in a baking dish. Top with remaining sauce.  

Bake covered, in a 350 degree oven for about 35 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake uncovered for about 5 minutes or until cheese melts. Let stand for 10 minutes.

Sprinkle with olives, tomatoes and green onions. Then, enjoy!
