Cinco de Mayo is just around the corner. My kids love celebrating Cinco de Mayo because it includes delicious food, giant sombreros and fun lights and decor. So, get out your recipes and prepare for the festivities. I found this recipe on Pinterest and thought it looked divine. It's easy to make and the ingredients are probably already in your kitchen. Let's get started.
Cook and shred 2 cups of chicken.
Grate cheese. Mix 1 cup with shredded chicken.
Make sure it is mixed well.
Place the chicken/cheese mixture in the center of each of 10 soft flour tortillas.
Roll and place in greased 9x13 inch pan.
Place them close together. I need to add a few more to this pan.
Melt 3 Tbs. butter in 2 quart pan.
When melted, add 3 tbs. flour.
Mix with whisk until bubbly.
Add chicken stock and boil.
Boil on medium heat until thickened.
Add sour cream and green chilies. Don't let it boil again or the sour cream will curdle.
Pour sauce on flour tortillas. Sprinkle with remaining shredded cheese.
Bake on 350 for 22 minutes. Then amp up your oven heat to broil for a few minutes to get the cheese nice and brown. Oh yum!
Let cool for a few minutes. Scoop onto plate and serve with lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream and corn chips. Delicioso! When your guests taste this they'll say OLE'.

10 soft taco shells
2 cups cooked, shredded chicken
2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese

2 cups chicken broth
1 cup sour cream
1 (4 oz) can diced green chillies
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x13 pan. Mix chicken and 1 cup cheese. Roll up in tortillas and place in pan. In a sauce pan, melt butter, stir in flour and cook 1 minute. Add broth and whisk until smooth. Heat over medium heat until thick and bubbly. Stir in sour cream and chilies. Do not bring to boil, you don't want curdled sour cream. Pour over enchiladas and top with remaining cheese. Bake 22 min and then under high broil for 3 min to brown the cheese.
