    TexasToast R's Note:

    I was looking for a chicken enchilada recipe that did not use canned cream soups. After finding one online, I made several changes to make the recipe a little healthier and easier to prepare. I often make with cheese made with 2 % milk to make them a little lighter too. Sometimes I also add pinto or black beans to replace half the chicken.

    3. 3
      Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic and saute for about 2 minutes (keeping the heat medium low so as not to scorch the garlic). Add the flour and mix.

Heat throroughly but do not boil, stirring occasionally.
