Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas

I first ate Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas at Chili’s. I loved them and vowed that I would make them at home. So I searched google for a Chili’s knock-off recipe. Several recipes came up and I chose the one that I thought would be the easiest and the most like Chili’s. There were many, many to choose from.

I made a couple of changes to the recipe, like substituting different cheeses and adding corn and black beans. I had the original recipe that I found (on a blog I am sure) saved on my other computer, but no worries because I had it memorized. That computer has since gone to computer heaven and when I started writing this post I set out to find where I got the recipe, so that I could give them credit in this post. Well that turned out to be impossible. There are so many blogs out there that have the exact recipe and I do not remember where I got it. Sooo, as not to give credit to the wrong blog I chose not to give credit to anyone.

 

As you can tell from the picture of ingredients, I shop at Walmart and use a lot of Great Value brand products. I do not “settle”. I have tried the name brands and I have tried generic brands and if there is a cheaper alternative, I’m in. I mean, why not? It really is a matter of personal taste that makes us choose one brand over the other, so why not buy the cheapest if it is just as good? I really do “Save money. Live better”, and I am fine with that. And I am not partial to Walmart,  I also shop at Aldi.

These would be great served with Spanish Rice as a side dish.

This is a great chicken enchilada recipe that is creamy and delicious. The green chilies and sour cream give it great flavor.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups cooked, shredded chicken
  • 1/2 cup corn
  • 1/2 cup black beans
  • 1 cup grated pepper jack cheese
  • 10 flour tortillas (8 inch)
  • Cooking spray
  • 3 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1 can chicken broth (14.5 ounces)
