White Enchiladas

These are so so so good.  It's a good one to fact I made this dish for DH when he and I were dating. 

Did I mention we are now married?

However, once again, I cannot take credit for this recipe, as this is another from the cooking classes that my mom and her best friend used to attend.  This is also an excellent way to use your turkey leftovers (or chicken, if you have them).

2 to 3 cups cooked chicken or turkey
4 oz. cream cheese
1/4 cup minced onion
1 cup Jack cheese, shredded
1/2 bottle green taco sauce (you can use green salsa too)
1/2 tsp seasoning salt
1 small can sliced black olives (optional)
1 tomato, diced

1 dozen corn tortillas

Combine all above ingredients (excluding tortillas) for filling.  Soften tortillas in wet paper towels in the microwave.  *If you prefer, they can be fried in oil to soften.  Place about 1/4 cup filling on one edge of tortillas and roll.  Place in shallow pan, seam side down.  Can freeze to this point.  (If frozen, thaw and continue.)

4 Tbsp butter
1/4 cup flour
2 cups chicken broth
1 cup sour cream
1 (4 oz.) can chopped chilies
1 cup Jack cheese, shredded

Melt butter and blend in flour.  Add chicken broth all at once and stir until mixture bubbles and thickens.  Stir in sour cream and chilies, heat through but do not boil.   Pour sauce over tortillas and top with Jack cheese.  Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 30 minutes or until heated through.

Serve with guacamole, salsa, sour cream, and chopped cilantro.

*I never do this.  In fact, often times I don't even roll the enchiladas (even after softening in the micro, my shells usually crack and it drives me nuts).  Frying them is just too much trouble and this recipe isn't low calorie as it is.  SO, I usually make a "lasagna" starting will a layer of tortillas on the bottom of a glass baking dish, layering half the filling, another layer of tortillas, the rest of the filling and finish with a final layer of tortillas.  Then top with the sauce and cheese.   It still tastes just as good.  :)

This does look good & the lasagna alternative sounds much easier than rolling everything up.
