Cheesy White Chicken Enchiladas


I grew up with this yummy recipe & love it!

4-6 large chicken breast halves, cooked & cubed
2 cans cream of chicken soup
2 cups sour cream
1 small can green chilies diced or chopped (optional)
1 small can or jar of sliced green or black olives (optional)
3-4 green onions, sliced (optional)
2 cups monterey jack cheese (if you don't have it, cheddar is fine)
2 cups grated cheddar cheese
tortillas

Cook chicken & dice; set aside. In large bowl combine soup, sour cream, chilies, olives, & green onions. Add monterey jack cheese to mixture once well combined. Remove 2 cups of mixture & add to chicken. Place chicken mixture into tortillas & roll up. Place in 2 large pans so they are somewhat separated. Spoon remaining mixture over top & cover with cheddar cheese. Cover with foil & bake for 30-40 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove foil & bake for an additional 10-15 minutes or until cheese begins to lightly brown.

Notes:
- I find it helps to put a thin layer of soup mixture on the pan first so that the bottoms of the tortillas don't get too tough
- I usually cut the recipe in half to make just one 9x13 & freeze the other half of the can of chilies in a snack bag
The only problem is that I can't remember any sides that we used to eat with it...
Suggestions anyone?

  1. I think fresh fruit like strawberries or pineapple is always good with Mexican dishes. Chips and Salsa would work, Mexican Rice as well.

  8. That looks great!! I'd say skip the sides and just put lettuce and tomatoes on top!
