Absolutely DELICIOUS. I found this recipe in a book called, '30-Minute Recipes From Around the World. It is actually tweaked a bit here the way I love it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook your chicken with your favorite seasonings, even if just salt and pepper. I personally like to add garlic salt to mine.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix chicken, monterey jack cheese and one can of green chilies together.
  3. Put equal portions of the mixture onto each tortillas using a big spoon, line them up enclosed side face down in a 9x13 dish.
  4. Melt butter in a saucepan, then add flour and stir until it is smoothened. Pour in the broth and when it s boiling, continue to stir until the sauce is thick. Add in the cumin, garlic powder and the last can of green chilies, stir to mix.
  5. Pour all over the tortillas and top with cheddar cheese, and now you've got yourself enchiladas!
  6. Bake for about 15 minutes in a 375°F oven.

This was awesome! I made it exactly like the recipe said and it was very moist. The only thing I would change is to cook it a bit longer than 15 minutes. It was a little bit cooler that I would have liked. Otherwise, it was excellent!!!

This was one of my selections for PAC 2008. I used the medium size tortillas and it made up 9 over stuffed enchiladas. These are good, but they were just a little dry. If I make again I will mix up more sauce, maybe 3 cups of broth and then increase the flour and butter.
