White Chicken Enchiladas

I made these super yummy White Chicken Enchiladas Sunday for lunch after church.  It was so easy and super tasty.  I found the original recipe HERE at Joyful Momma’s Kitchen.  We love enchiladas in this house, that could have something to do with my better half being of Latin decent.  Well that and I LOVE Cheese, and that’s the best part of Enchilada’s right?!

These turned out great, although I think next time I would add more green chili’s to spice it up some more.  And I used a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store and just pulled it apart, it was a quick fix for me.  I think I will also add dice Green Scallions next time on top to give it a mild onion flavor and a pop of color. Even the hubby liked these which I didn’t think he would since they weren’t what he is used to.  But served along side a salad it was a good Sunday lunch.  When we normally make enchiladas we make a few different kinds, sometimes it’s just cheese and onion, other times we do mashed potatoes and cheese, mostly we make chicken – cheese – and onion.  And I almost always mix red & green sauce together with them.  Do you have a favorite enchilada recipe?  Feel free to share it below in a comment.

    Thanks for sharing! I made these too, and with a few changes they were perfect for my fam! I just added a small sauteed onion to the chicken. Then to the sour cream sauce, I added 1 can of green chiles, and halfed the broth and added a can of green enchilada sauce. It was the perfect amount of spice for all of us. Needless to say, they were delicious and my family gobbled it down. :)
