Salsa Verde Sour Cream Enchiladas

I am trying to diet. Oh, how I hate that word as a verb! Nothing drastic, just trying to cut back, eat healthier, work out a little more.

These Salsa Verde Sour Cream Enchiladas definitely do not qualify as diet friendly! They were so delicious it was difficult to eat only one serving. I found the recipe on one my favorite blogs, Sing For Your Supper and made it almost immediately. Tender chicken wrapped inside tortillas is blanketed with a creamy and tangy sour cream sauce. Yum!

Salsa Verde Sour Cream Enchiladas
-adapted from Sing For Your Supper, originally from the Homesick Texan

4 boneless chicken breasts, cooked and shredded (I used a rotisserie chicken to save time)
3 large cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 cup onion, minced
2 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
2 cups chicken broth
2 cups sour cream (I used reduced-fat)
1 1/2 cups Salsa Verde
1 & 1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp cayenne
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp white pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
8 flour tortillas, small fajita size
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack

Preheat the oven to 350. Melt butter over medium-high heat. Saute onions until soft and then add the garlic, cooking for 1 minute. Stir in the flour and let cook 1-2 minutes. Whisk in the chicken broth until smooth and let cook until bubbly. Stir in the sour cream, salsa, cumin, cayenne, salt, pepper, and garlic powder until the sauce is smooth. Remove from heat.

Spray/grease a 9×13 baking dish. Add 1 cup of sauce to the bottom of the pan. Add chicken and cheese to the center of each tortilla and roll, placing seam-side down in the dish. Pour the sauce over the enchiladas, top with leftover cheese, and bake at 350 for 25 minutes or until top is brown and bubbling.

  1. Look delicious! Too bad these aren't healthy, I love chicken enchiladas. Of course, I love all those unhealthy foods.

  2. I'm trying to cut back too, only it turns out that it's not much fun cutting back when you love to cook and bake. Funny thing is that I'm making enchiladas tomorrow:D Great minds think alike, right?
    These look so creamy and delicious!!

  3. These look super! Definitely worth a try :)
