Ingredients
  

  • 2 c chicken cooked and shredded
  • 2 c Colby jack cheese shredded
  • 19 oz. Las Palmas green chile enchilada sauce
  • 1 c sour cream
  • 6-8 corn tortillas
  • 4.5 oz can chopped green chiles
  • salt and pepper

Instructions
 

  • In a small bowl, combine chicken, 1 cup cheese, green chiles, salt and pepper.
  • In a small skillet, bring enchilada sauce to boil. Remove from heat.
  • Dip each tortilla into heated sauce for a few seconds to soften.
  • Spoon ⅓ cup of chicken mixture and 2 tablespoons sour cream down center for each tortilla (I usually put the sour cream in a sandwich bag and cut the bottom tip which makes it easier to squirt right down the center)
  • Roll the tortilla and place seam-side down in 8x8 (or 9x9) inch baking dish.
  • Repeat with remaining tortillas. Pour remaining heated enchilada sauce over top. Sprinkle with remaining 1 cup cheese.
  • Bake 20 minutes at 350.
