Family Favorite Chicken Sour Cream Enchiladas (Casserole)

Total Time

I've had this enchilada recipe for ages, it was passed down to me from my mother and is always a popular dish around my house. My husbands favorite casserole! :) Hope you enjoy as much as we do. A few notes: Sometimes I leave off the 2 cups of shredded chicken, and it is still yummy as can be. I usually double the green chiles and use "healthy request" soup and reduced fat sour cream. Also, we prefer corn tortillas in this dish, but use whatever you like. ENJOY!

I cooked this in a crock pot, layering the ingredients instead of rolling in the tortillas. I'm sure I used fewer tortillas (8-10). But, this was terrific. Everyone loved it.

I have been making the original recipe ever since I found it in a church cookbook 20 or so years ago. I made this recipe using both kinds of soup. We loved it. The nacho cheese added a nice flavor twist on an old family favorite. Thanks BecR. Bullwinkle

I still gave this five stars even though I altered (slightly) the recipe. They were simply fab and Mom approved. (no kids here to please, lol) Have made them 2x so far, and plan to do again. Yummy.
