The 400th-Something Chicken Enchiladas
40 mins (prep 20, cooking 20)
15 ingredients
2 servings
Another variation on chicken enchiladas - almost up to 500 on 'Zaar it looks like. Well, you can't have too many enchiladas, in our opinion! This is our favorite. We tried a variety of recipes and then ended up developing this one by taking our favorite elements from the others, with particular enjoyment of the sour cream/cream cheese addition from Anasazi Enchiladas, and personal preference (we like more veggies in ours than most seem to have in them). Low-fat/fat-free dairy products can be used - just be aware that fat-free cheese doesn't always melt as well as low-fat or regular does, so watch it carefully for doneness if that is used. Enjoy this with any kind of enchilada sauce - we've used red sauce, green chile sauce, sour cream sauce (I generally just make this like a roux, but add a combination of sour cream and chicken broth instead of milk), and mole sauce - my favorite! (I would highly recommend Mole (Mo-lay) Sauce). Feel free to add more sauce or cheese, as desired ... I've learned that we seem to like less of those ingredients than others :)
