THIS WEEK'S CRAVINGS #79 (MEXICAN DISHES) and White Chicken (or Turkey) Enchiladas

(MEXICAN DISHES - Cinco de Mayo)
White Chicken (or Turkey) Enchiladas

I saw this recipe sweep the Pinterest boards over and over and over again. I thought, there must be something to this recipe so I had to see for myself. And well, I've made it twice now in one month. Once with chicken and once with turkey, it is THAT GOOD!

My kids don't really go for enchiladas (they don't like red enchilada sauce), so this recipe is great for my family. This recipe will for sure be hitting my dinner table often.

I used two different type of tortillas (one gluten-free for my daughter)!
White Chicken (or Turkey) Enchiladas
originally found at Joyful Momma's Kitchen

10 flour tortilla
2 cups cooked, shredded chicken (or turkey)
2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
3 tbsp. butter
3 tbsp. flour
2 cups chicken broth (or turkey broth with turkey meat)
1 cup sour cream
1 (4 oz) can diced green chillies

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x13 pan. Mix chicken and 1 cup cheese. Roll up in tortillas and place in pan.

In a sauce pan, melt butter, stir in flour and cook 1 minute. Add broth and whisk until smooth. Heat over medium heat until thick and bubbly. Stir in sour cream and chilies. Do not bring to boil, you don't want curdled sour cream. Pour over enchiladas and top with remaining cheese.

Bake 22 minutes and then under high broil for 3 more minutes to brown the cheese.

  1. I made this recipe last week after seeing it on Pinterest too. It turned out really yummy. It is definitely a keeper. The one change I did was to cook the chicken with some seasonings. I used cumin, garlic, salt, and pepper to give it more flavor. I also added diced onions.

  2. Mmm- I love the flavors in Mexican food! I shared my recipe for Pork Pozole Soup. Pozole is a soup that is made by cooks all over Mexico. It can be made with pork or chicken or a combination of both. The fun part of pozole is the garnishes!

  3. I have been looking forward to this week. Thanks for hosting. Those enchiladas look awesome!

  4. Those white enchilada's look yummy.

  5. Tina, your White Chicken (or Turkey) Enchiladas look good. Enchiladas go over well at our house too!

    Linking up with a few High School Spanish Class Memories and a tried and true Taco Salad.


  6. Hi Tina. Never had white enchiladas before, only red or green sauce. Going to have to give these a try. Thanks for hosting and have a great week-end.

  7. Tina,

    Your enchiladas look wonderful! I have linked up Shredded Chicken Tacos! Nettie
