Whether you're fixing a dinner for company or you just want to make something for the kids, these creamy enchiladas will be a huge hit. Add a salad, some sides of salsa or guacamole, and then enjoy.


3 cups of chicken, cooked and hand shredded
3/4 cup of light sour cream
1/2 cup of roasted green chilies chopped up
1/4 tsp of cumin
1 large lime juiced (only use the juice)
10-12 yellow corn or white corn tortillas
1 1/2 cups of shredded Cheddar or Mexican blend cheese
Cracked pepper to your own taste
Small amount of olive oil
Fresh cilantro chopped
2 cups of quick enchilada sauce (* recipe below)


With the olive oil, lightly oil up a 13x9" dish for baking. Preheat the oven to 350.

In a large bowl, mix together the chicken, chilies, lime juice, and sour cream. Use the cumin and cracked pepper to season it. Set to the side.

Then, make the quick enchilada sauce:


1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp of cumin
1 onion, small, diced very fine
1 tsp organic sugar
3-4 cloves of garlic, finely minced
1 splash of red wine vinegar or balsamic vinegar
1 tsp fresh cilantro, minced
1 can crushed fire roasted tomatoes (28 oz)

Heat up the olive oil on medium. Saute the spices and onion for about 5 minutes. Then add in sugar, garlic, vinegar, cilantro, and tomatoes. Stir and then simmer. Simmer for about 15 minutes covered.

Spread a spoon of the sauce in your oiled baking dish. Heat tortillas quickly in a small amount of olive oil to soften. Sit tortilla in baking dish and spoon in chicken mixture. Roll up and place it with the seam side on the bottom. Once all tortillas are in the pan, pour the rest of the sauce over the tortillas then top them off with the shredded cheese. Lightly sprinkle on fresh cilantro.

Bake for 20 minutes at 350, or until the sauces is bubbly and the cheese is melting.
