Ingredients: Gather the following ingredients to embark on the journey of creating Cream Cheese Chicken Enchiladas:

  • 10 small soft flour tortillas (or corn tortillas)
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded, cooked chicken (rotisserie chicken works great)
  • 3 cups Monterey Jack cheese, grated
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 4 oz diced green chiles

How To Make Cream Cheese Chicken Enchiladas: Follow these simple steps to create a plateful of creamy goodness:

  1. Preheat and Assemble: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Fill each tortilla with a heavenly mixture of shredded chicken and 1 cup of grated cheese. Roll up each tortilla and place them snugly in a greased 9×13 skillet.
  2. Prepare the White Enchilada Sauce: In a skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Stir in flour and whisk for 1 minute, creating a roux. Add chicken broth and whisk together, allowing it to thicken and bubble over high heat.
  3. Add Creaminess and Zest: Remove the skillet from heat and delicately fold in sour cream and diced green chiles. Be cautious not to let it get too hot to prevent curdling.
  4. Pour and Top: Pour the creamy mixture over the enchiladas, ensuring each one is generously coated. Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top, creating a gooey and irresistible layer.
  5. Bake to Perfection: Bake the enchiladas in the preheated oven for 20-23 minutes. For that perfect golden touch, broil for an additional 3 minutes to brown the cheese to perfection.

Conclusion: As you take your first bite into these Cream Cheese Chicken Enchiladas, you’ll be greeted with a burst of flavors – the creaminess of the cheese, the tenderness of the chicken, and the subtle heat from the green chiles.
