Chicken Enchiladas

I got this from an online bloggy friend, Marci. This is my most favoritest-est enchilada recipe. We are always looking for good enchilada/burrito recipes, so if you have one, please share! Chicken Enchiladas Originally from Better Homes and Garden Cookbook, 1989 Edition. 

14 flour tortillas, soft taco size 
1 cup chopped onion 
3 TBS minced garlic 
2 tsp ground coriander 
1/2 tsp pepper 
4 Tbsp butter 
6 Tbsp all-purpose flour 
1 16-ounce carton sour cream 
2 cans chicken broth 
2 4-ounce can diced green chili peppers, drained 
2 cup shredded cheese 
7 cups chopped chicken (or turkey)
Olives, optional garnish
Tomatoes, optional garnish
Green onions, optional garnish

Directions For sauce, in a saucepan cook onion, garlic, coriander, and pepper in butter til onion is tender. Stir flour into sour cream; add to onion mixture. Stir in broth and diced chili peppers all at once. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Remove from heat, stir in 2 cups cheese. For filling, stir 3
 cup of sauce into chicken. Place about 1/2 cup filling on each tortilla, spread around and roll up. Arrange rolls seam side down in a lightly greased 9X13 baking dish. Top with remaining sauce. Top with 1 cup cheese.

Bake, covered, in a 350 degree oven about 15 minutes or until heated through. ****Bake, uncovered, about 20 more minutes more until cheese melts. Can sprinkle with olives, tomatoes and green onions. Let stand 10 minutes

So I made these enchiladas and they were wonderful. Hubby and I loved them for dinner. I was excited for leftovers but my son and his girlfriend came over and finished the pan! I should have hid them in the fridge better.
Thanks for the recipe, I will blog about them soon with a link to your blog.
I can't wait to make them again!

This is the first green chicken enchilada recipe I’ve ever made, right out of my Better Homes n Garden Cookbook from years ago. I lost this book and recipe and haven’t been able to match this recipe. I finally found it! The king size white corn tortillas I prefer in this. Just warm a bit stacked a few seconds in the microwave for easier rolling. Yumm!!!
