Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas

Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas



Many years ago, I was part of a dinner group with three other ladies.  We actually cooked and exchanged dinners, and this is how it worked:  Once a month each of us would prepare four different dinners, but we would make enough of each dinner for all four families.  We packaged up the dinners in disposable foil containers, and we included instructions on how to bake them or do any last minute preparations.  Then the four of us met together and exchanged all of the dinners so that each person ended up with 16 different dinners.  Once we got back home, we would put all of our dinners in the freezer, and over the next month, we had 16 nights worth of dinners where we didn’t have to cook.


The reason I’m sharing that story with you today is because one of the dinners that I received from that dinner group was these Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas.  I thought they were so good that I asked for the recipe, and I have made them many times since then.

Sour Cream Chicken EnchiladasThey are really very simple.  You don’t even have to fry the tortillas.  It’s just a matter of cooking the chicken, mixing it up with the other ingredients, and rolling the mixture up in the tortillas.  Top with more cheese and then bake them in the oven.

  1. I’m craving Mexican food…these look so good and will definitely be a dinner we try soon!

  2. How do I make these and freeze for later?

  3. Pam, when I make these enchiladas, I usually have leftovers, and I just freeze them and then reheat them again on another day. But when I was part of the dinner group, the enchiladas were assembled but not baked. We froze them like that, and then on the day we used them, we allowed them to defrost and then baked them as usual.

  4. I’ve been to lots of Mexican restaurants and the menu always calls these enchiladas “Chicken Enchiladas Suiza” — one of my many Mexican favorites!

  5. My family loves this dish but I was in a rush one time & just tore the tortillas into bite size pieces, mixed all together & baked. Does not look as pretty but turns out the same. We top with shredded lettuce, cheese & a peach salsa. Lost my chili relleno casserole & found yours which is very similar to what I make. Trying yours this weekend.

  6. I think you’re going to like that Chile Rellenos Casserole, Deb. It’s one of my favorite dishes.
