1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9×13 pan or any baking dish.

3. In a saucepan, melt butter; stir in flour and cook for 1 minute. Add broth and whisk until smooth.

Heat over medium heat until thick and bubbly.

5. Pour over enchiladas and top with remaining cheese. Bake for 20 min; then under high broil for three additional minutes to brown the cheese.

Note: I used the addition of mozzarella cheese during broiling.

    Totally amazing! Definitely a top 5 in our taco Tuesday book.

    What do you do with left overs?

    Just reheat in the oven?

      • Alyona

      Hi Melinda, you can reheat them in the microwave quicker.

    • Anne O,halloran

    absolutely loved it this is gonna be a go to more often. thank you for sharing. x

      • Alyona

      Wonderful, Anne!

    • Karla

    This is very close to my recipe in my head! I’m saving it for when I forget how. Haha
    Sometimes I simmer a couple chicken breasts in 2 or 3 cups of water with chicken bouillon. That’s what I use for the shredded chicken and broth. I also melt an extra cup of Monterey jack in my sauce. I sometimes put a little sauce in my rolled up tortilla with the chicken.
    I just love this recipe.

      • Alyona

      I hope it meets your expectations, Karla.

    • Susan

    Love the flavor and simplicity of this recipe. The only thing I would change going forward (and I will make this again for sure) is to sub corn tortillas for the flour. I had a real hard time getting past the slimy texture.

      • Alyona

      Hi Susan, let me know how it works with corn tortillas.

    • Joanne C

    • Beth

      Wonderful!

    • Carol

    This was really good. I think next time I’ll add some taco seasoning to the chicken for a little more flavor.

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      Thank you for the feedback, Carol!

    • Ashley

    Can this recipe work with ground beef?

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      I’d recommend my ground beef enchiladas with a cheesy red sauce if you want to use beef (they’re amazing!)
