White Chicken Enchiladas {Recipe}

A few days ago, I made these white chicken enchiladas and they were delicious! I’ve been meaning to try out new recipes and I am so glad I finally got around to trying this one. I’d never had an enchilada with white sauce before (green is my favorite) but this was pretty yummy. Here’s the recipe:


  • 2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 8 soft shell flour tortillas
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 (4oz) can of diced green chilies
  • 2 cups shredded chicken
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 2 cups of chicken broth
  • Salt and pepper, for taste


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Cook and shred your chicken breast, then mix with 1 cup of shredded cheese
  • Lay out the tortillas and divide the chicken-cheese mixture evenly amongst the 8 tortillas. Roll them up and place them side-by-side in the pan.
  • In a saucepan, melt the 3 tablespoons of butter over medium heat and add the flour. Mix and cook for about a minute.
  • Add in the 2 cups of chicken broth, whisking until it’s a smooth consistency. Whisk over medium heat until it is thick and creamy (usually about 5-8 minutes).
  • Mix in the sour cream, salt, pepper, and the can of chiles to the pan
  • Pour the sauce over the tortillas, making sure to cover evenly
  • Add the other cup of cheese to the top of the enchiladas
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes or until cheese is golden brown
  • Enjoy with salsa or without! It’s yummy either way!

Ta-Da! Enjoy.(:
