Chicken Enchiladas
Makes 6 servings
Prep: Cook Chicken ahead of time (I usually just throw it in a pot of boiling water for awhile until it is done.  You can also buy canned chicken if you prefer.)

1 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup chopped green onions
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 4-ounce can diced green chilies (optional)
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 cup sour cream
2 cups cubed boneless skinless chicken breast halves cooked
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese divided
6 flour tortillas 12 inch
1/4 cup milk

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9×13 baking dish.

2. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter and sauté the green onion until tender (about 3
to 4 minutes).

3. Add the garlic powder, and then stir in the green chilies, cream of mushroom soup and sour cream. Mix

4. Reserve 3/4 of this sauce and set aside.

5. To the remaining 1/4 of the sauce in the saucepan, add the chicken and 1 cup of shredded Cheddar
cheese. Stir together.

6. Fill each flour tortilla with the chicken mixture and roll up. Place seam side down in the prepared baking

7. In a small bowl combine the reserved 3/4 of the sauce with the milk. Spoon this mixture over the rolled
tortillas and top with the remaining 1 cup of shredded Cheddar cheese.
