I made enchiladas last night and I wanted to share my recipe with you. I have been making these for years.

Here is the recipe:

Gather your ingredients

Put half a can of green enchilada sauce in a pan
Along with 1 block cream cheese
5 green onions (chopped),
and 1/2 tsp. cumin

Chop or shred the chicken

Add chicken to pan
Cook on med. about 10 min. 

Put 1/3 cup of the green sauce on the bottom of the pan
Layer with tortillas
Top with chicken mixture
Top with cheese
Continue layering
Last layer should be tortillas
 Mix the leftover green sauce with 1/2 cup sour cream and 
pour over top the tortillas

That should look creamier, but my sour cream was a little frozen.
Never should have let it get pushed to the back of the fridge. 

Top with cheese
 Bake at 350 for 30 min.

Green chicken enchiladas

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 32 oz. can green enchilada sauce
  • Make sure you look at the cans - a lot of them have MSG in them
  • 1 block of cream cheese
  • 5 green onions
  • tortillas
  • cheese
  • sour cream
  • cumin


Cook chicken. 
Put 1/2 can green enchilada sauce in pan along with block of cream cheese, 5 green onions and 1/2 tsp cumin. Add chicken, cook on med for 10 minutes. Now you can start layering. Put a 1/3 cup enchilada sauce in bottom of pan, top with tortillas. Top with chicken mixture and cheese. Continue layering - last layer should be tortillas. Mix rest of enchilada sauce with 1/2 cup sour cream. Top tortillas with sauce. Top with cheese. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.  Makes 2 8x8 pans or 1 9x13 pan.
