Tillamook Easy Sour Cream Enchiladas
A hearty and delicious family favorite, these enchiladas are a huge hit every time I make them! Pair with Spanish rice and black beans for a perfect meal. My tip for this recipe is that if you find that the sauce is too thick after adding in your sour cream, you can use extra chicken broth 1 tablespoon at a time to thin it out.
Prep time: 30 minutes
Total time: 55 minutes
Yield (number of servings): 8
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (1 lb), cubed
1 small onion, chopped
1 tablespoon Tillamook Butter
8 flour tortillas
2 cups Tillamook Shredded Mexican Blend Cheese, divided
1 ½ cups Tillamook Sour Cream
1 cup chicken broth
1 4-oz can green chiles
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon cumin
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
Using a large skillet over medium heat, cook onion and chicken in butter until chicken is cooked through. Next, spoon onion chicken mixture into tortillas, add some cheese, and roll them up. Place the rolls side by side in a buttered 9×13 baking dish, fold side down.
In a skillet whisk together sour cream, chicken broth, and green chiles over medium-high heat. Add in garlic powder, cumin, and cayenne. Simmer for 5-10 minutes. Pour sauce over enchiladas. Top with remaining cheese. Bake at 400 degrees for 17-19 minutes or until cheese becomes lightly brown and bubbly.
Tips for stress-free home entertaining:
“My secret to making entertainment in the home stress-free is to be well prepared. I shop ahead of time so I make sure the day of my event I won’t have to run to the store and lose valuable prep time.”
Kitchen advice for other moms and dads:
“My kitchen advice for Mom’s preparing for a family gathering is to have a fun craft or project to have your kids work on the day of your party (for Holidays, I like to give them a craft kit to create a table centerpiece). Sit them down in the living room with the activity and have dad or another relative supervise. With less to worry about things will go more smoothly in the kitchen while you’re cooking.”
