Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas feature shredded chicken, black beans, corn, and flour tortillas smothered in a sour cream sauce with green chiles.
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. When I started writing this post I set out to find where I got the recipe. I wanted to 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. We 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.
