This White Chicken Enchiladas Recipe is EASY and delicious! Sour cream and green chilies make the creamiest sauce.  After discovering this recipe from Joyful Mommas Kitchen, I went ahead and made these. I guess I was drawn by the simplicity of the recipe and of course how creamy and yummy it looked.

This recipe had never let me down, and with many positive reviews for this recipe, you can be sure this is a good one. Even children like these enchiladas! They are super delicious and make dinner a breeze because it all comes together quickly!

How to make White Chicken Enchiladas:

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

2. Mix chicken and 1 cup cheese. Roll up tortillas and place into the prepared pan.

Note: I used a traditional rotisserie to shred the chicken.

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.

4. Stir in sour cream and chilies. Do not bring to boil. You don’t want curdled sour cream.

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.

Hi Ruth, you could but it will have a different outcome as ground meat has a completely different texture.

non fat greek yogurt is my go to when replacing sour cream. Same texture, tastes great and added protein.

Sure Claire as long as it worked for you. Never tried this with yogurt good to know alternatives for the sour cream!

Will this work without using sourcream …is there something I should use in its place? Or just omit it…
Thanks

I haven’t tried so, Denise but perhaps a cream of condensed soup or a homemade roux would be good alternatives?

I love this recipe! It’s been a while since we’ve made it so I’m back looking up the recipe for supper tonight 🙂
I did alter it a little though.
Along with the sour cream sauce I added a can of riccos quesa Blanca can cheese (it’s delicious!!)
& I boiled my chicken with a ton of seasonings (garlic, onion, salt, and some Creole seasoning for a little heat) so it would have a little more flavor and won’t be as dry as the rotisserie.
Thank you so much for sharing this one! It’s one of my favorites!! ?
