Recipe: White chicken enchiladas

What was life like before Pinterest? I simply can’t remember and really don’t want to. I recently stumbled upon the most delicious Mexican-inspired meal and it’s too good not to share with y’all.

Oh, by the way, if you’re looking for a healthy recipe – You may want to look somewhere else. Sorry. [Not sorry] 

What you’ll need:

  • 8-10 flour tortillas
  • 3 cups chicken, shredded (I boiled two large chicken breasts for 25 minutes, then shredded them)
  • 3 cups Monterey Jack Cheese, shredded
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 2 cups chicken broth (I used low sodium)
  • 1 cup sour cream (maybe low fat if you’re trying to be healthier)
  • 1 4-ounce can of diced green chilies
  • 2-3 tablespoons green onions, sliced


  1. Spray 9×13 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray and set aside. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a small bowl, combine chicken & 1 cup of cheese. Fill tortillas with mixture and roll each one up then place seam side down in baking dish.
  3. Melt butter in skillet. Sprinkle flour over butter, then whisk to combine. Cook for 1 minute. Remove skillet from heat and whisk in broth. Place back on heat and cook until mixture has thickened and is bubbly.
  4. Cool sauce for 5 minutes. [VERY important to let the sauce cool because if it is too hot the sour cream can curdle when you add it… gross.]
  5. Add sour cream and chilies to the sauce and stir until smooth with sour cream completely dissolved.
  6. Pour sauce over enchiladas and add remaining cheese over top. Bake for 25 minutes until sauce is bubbly. Turn on broiler and broil until the top is golden.
  7. Top with green onions & enjoy!
