I have used flour tortillas, shredded chicken, sour cream, cream of chicken soup, cheddar and pepper jack cheese to make this very satisfying and filling meal. Paired with an avocado salad, green salad or jicama and orange salad this will be a completely delicious and well rounded meal. You could even add fresh spinach to the filling to include more greens. As economical, budget stretcher meals go, this one is one of my favorites!
The secret to this dish is definitely in the sauce! You can choose to start with a homemade cream of chicken, but this is a quick recipe so I make no apologies for using the canned soup. The sauce is simple. Sour cream, cream of chicken soup and a healthy dose of your favorite jarred salsa verde sauce. I sometimes like to also add a small can of chopped green chilies to add more of that flavor.
The filling is simple. shredded chicken, shredded cheddar cheese and a bit of the sauce. All mixed together to make a thick but workable filling for the tortillas. I divided the filling evenly between eight "fajita sized" flour tortillas. I prefer the Cesareo style tortillas because they are a bit thicker and roll much easier. Spreading the filling across the middle portion of the tortilla then rolling tightly into a compact cigar. I fit all of these into a foil pan and they were perfectly snug. You can feel free to use your favorite baking dish to make this as well. Just be sure the enchiladas have enough space to spread out on each end. You don't want them folded up on themselves.
When all the enchiladas were filled and snugly set in their cooking pan, I poured the creamy sauce over them and spread it evenly. As this bakes the sauce will cook down into all the crevices and become even more delicious. I then topped this with a generous handful of pepper jack cheese. You can add more or less to your preference and if you like a different type of cheese then go for it! I think just about anything would be great with the exception of Mozzarella which has no business around Mexican style cooking.
This bakes up in just around a half hour, uncovered and is bubbly, cheesy, creamy and amazing. Everyone is going to love this one. Even people who think they don't like enchiladas will love this. The creamy sauce is the key! This casserole is best made and eaten fresh. Leftovers are alright, however not exceptional due to over sogginess of the tortilla after it sits post cooking. If you should have leftovers, they should be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator and eaten within 3 days.
I don't recommend this recipe for freezer banking due to the sour cream. Once frozen and thawed this will "break" making the sauce separate and look unappetizing and not become creamy upon baking. So this should not be frozen before or after cooking.
I hope that you give this salsa verde sour cream chicken enchilada recipe a try and I hope you love it! I hope that you give bulk cooking a try some time soon!
