Noticing a theme? We loveeee mexican. We could pretty much eat it every single day. I started out with this recipe that I had called chicken enchilada casserole, and I royally screwed it up by not paying attention. So, I had to make some fast switches and create something yummy. Hmmm… noticing another theme? Mistakes! Don’t hate, tomorrow’s my birthday!
Anyway… Here goes!
- 2 cups shredded chicken (I roasted my own, and shredded it)
- 1 3/4 cups chicken broth
- 3 tbs butter
- 3 tbs flour
- 2 1/2 Home-made Taco Seasoning
- 2 cups shredded cheese
- 5 flour tortillas (medium)
- 1 cup (8oz) Sour cream
- 1 can of red enchiliada sauce (optional)
In a medium sauce pan melt butter, add flour and whisk until blended and cook for one minute, keep whisking. Gradually add in chicken broth, whisk for 2 minutes until bubbly and thickening. Add in sour cream and taco seasoning. Whisk.
In a separate bowl, mix chicken and 1 cup shredded cheese. Fill tortillas and place seem side down in 9×13 baking dish. This is where you would pour your enchiliada sauce over tortillas, if you like them extra wet and creamy. Pour wet mixture over filled tortillas, and cover with remaining cheese. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes.
As you can tell this is not a casserole by any stretch, it is straight up enchis, but after we licked the casserole dish nobody even noticed.
BTW menu plan for the week went to hell in a hand basket for many different reasons. So, Whatever. It’s my birthday and I’ll stray if I want to. Enjoy : )
