    rosie316's Note:

    I can't remember which magazine I found this recipe in (I was sitting in a waiting room and scribbled it down on scratch paper). I know that I've made some changes from the original recipe, (by making them "suiza" style and playing around with the ingredients). I have since lost my notes (it's been quite a few years). I make this by memory only, so tweak this as you see fit. I have used Cheddar cheese (my favorite), Mexican cheese blend or Monterey Jack to make this, so you choose your favorite. I hope you enjoy this recipe. ***You may like to try Out of Desperation... Flour Tortillas to make this dish***

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 3-6

    Yield:

    enchila ...

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Pre-heat oven to 350* degrees F.
    2. 2
      In a medium bowl, stir together soup, sour cream, picante sauce (I use Pace Medium) and the chili powder.
    3. 3
      In another bowl, mix together only 1 cup of the sauce mixture with the shredded chicken and 1/2 cup of the cheese.
    4. 4
      Warm tortillas in a damp paper towel for approx 10 seconds in the microwave.
    5. 5
      Lay tortillas out and divide the chicken mixture evenly among the tortillas, running the filling down the center of each, roll up and lay them in an 11x8 baking dish.
    6. 6
      Pour the remaining sauce mixture over the tops of enchiladas, and sprinkle with the other 1/2 cup of cheese.
    7. 7
      Cover with foil and bake for 30 - 35 minutes, remove foil and bake an additional 5 minutes.
    8. 8
      Remove from oven, sprinkle chopped tomatoes and scallion over the top of dish (this is optional -- I leave both on the side of the plate on top of some shredded lettuce**). Serve with additional picante sauce and sour cream at the table. (**I like to line each plate with shredded lettuce for color and texture).
    9. 9
      Enjoy!

      This was tasty and easy. We used homemade cream of soup mix and our own homemade salsa. The kids chowed these down.

      DH loved this more than authentic enchiladas, which we loved, that's saying something! Used Pace Picante Sauce medium. I forgot to flip the page and add tomatoes and scallions, but we licked the baking dish anyway. (Used my go-to Pressure Cooker Whole Chicken to cook 2 giant boneless skinless chicken breasts in my 2-qt. pressure frypan.) Made for Please Review My Recipe tag game.

      Yum!! We loved these cheesy, creamy enchiladas! They go together quickly and easily with ingredients that I always have on hand. I used 2 chicken breasts and the larger amount (2 tsp.) of chili powder. I also added 2 tsp. cumin and 1/2 tsp. Penzeys Spices "Bold Taco" seasoning to the sauce mixture. I used 4-cheese Mexican blend cheese and used extra (about 1 cup) for the top. I got 10 enchiladas instead of 6 and baked this in a 9"x13" pan. Delicious!! Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe...it is definitely a keeper!! **Made for 2013 Football Pool**
