Hope this is easy to follow with my unorganized memory version.
It’s because once you’ve made this a few times, you’ll eyeball it, make do/changes (like heat), it gets super EASY!
And my family REALLY likes it! Thanks to Aunt Carol passing it on ♥ #family ♡
(This is rough guesstimate. Very forgiving recipe; practice to own liking)
Note-You know you can use your favorite of cheeses that go good with Mexican flavors, right? Which I don’t really measure. Eyes & hands 😀 Oh & I love using those pre-made rotisserie chickens! AND I prefer cream of mushroom soup because it seems to be less “sodium-ee” & that artificial chicken flavoring…but that’s me.
Shredded cheese (cheddar, monteray jack…) 4 cups?
Oh around …
2 cups chopped cooked chicken
* I just shred chicken by hand rustic varied sizes
2 cups (16 ounces) sour cream
1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of mushroom soup
1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies
I use taco seasoning.
(Family recipe uses chili powder)
10 flour tortillas
I do thin mine out. You could use milk, water, both or stock. Get to consistency that’s not real thick glob-like, lol…but not too thin where its runny in tortilla.
You CAN use some (handful hahaha) cheese in mix. But more on top! Just sayin
We spread a little of mixture without chicken on bottom of greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish, put filling with chicken on tortilla, roll, place in baking dish, lining them up in a row, spread remaining mix WITHOUT chicken on top, top with cheese.
Put in oven.350º – 375º
We don’t cover. About 20-25 minutes. Or until top is golden bubbly cheese ♥
(My larger baking dish is still in storage…ugh…”make it work” lol. I used 2 smaller dishes. BTW,; my son got LARGE tortillas too. Gotta laugh!)
Many recipes! I was hoping I showed how easy, quick & delicious choice for a meal.
Next day…add a little leftover filling over leftover enchilada, I drizzled tiny bit EVOO & can garnish with chopped green onion or parsley.
*note- its hard to mess this recipe up. Other thn the cooking time & temp…because burned isn’t good. But there’s nothing raw so its a matter of heating thru & getting cheese on top to bubbly & browning to one’s preference.
But I’ve messed up a couple times, like putting the cheese in the mix…after which my mouth dropped open & I was like “uh-oh…oh no”. But too late, can’t take it out. Aah ha! It was still delicious! I’ve forgotten to set aside a bowl without the chicken also. Well it was lumpy but didn’t change taste…still delicious 😀
