    Chef #1534395's Note:

    This is a great recipe that a friend of mine has been bringing to office pot-lucks for years. I just got the recipe from him and made it myself. It's a unique and pretty decadent twist on traditional enchiladas. You can adjust the amount of green chiles and jalapenos to your particular taste. This recipe carries a little bite, but is not particularly hot (even using green chiles rated HOT). To pep it up, use 3 cans of green chiles and 2 cans of jalapenos. For potlucks or freezing, double or triple this recipe.

    1. 1
      Boil 1 chicken (approximately 1 hour) until thoroughly cooked. Remove from pot and allow to cool. (Reserve the stock you just made for a future soup project). Shred the chicken and set aside.
    2. 2
      Simmer together soup, green chiles, jalapenos, sour cream and 1/2 cup shredded cheese. This will serve as your enchilada sauce.
    3. 3
      Once sauce is well combined and simmering, remove 2 cups and set aside. Add shredded chicken to remaining sauce and remove from heat.
    4. 4
      Heat tortillas in a skillet sprayed with nonstick cooking spray or 1/4 tsp of hot oil; just enough to make them soft and pliable. Blot with paper towel to remove excess oil.
    5. 5
      Roll approximately 1/4 cup of chicken/sauce mixture and an additional 1tbsp shredded cheese in each tortilla. Lay enchiladas side by side in a 9X13 casserole pan sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Approximately 8 will fit down the length of the pan, place the other 4 2 abreast alongside them.
    6. 6
      Pour reserved 2 cups of sauce over the top of the enchiladas and sprinkle remaining shredded cheese (should be about 1 cup) over the top.
    7. 7
      Bake at 375 for 18-20 minutes or until brown and bubbly.
