Creamy Sour Cream Enchiladas, and Cheesy Garlic Bread


This was one of my recipes on my meal plan this week and I actually made it!! I constantly make a meal plan and then constantly make something else.

This is so easy though, I love it. The best part is since it doesn't use cream'o'soups I can leave the cheese off the top and feed it to K-Girl. I like any meals like that!

I also made Mary's Cheesy Garlic Bread. Well. . .I kinda made it. I short-cut around her recipe.

Here's what you'll need to make both:
  • sliced swiss cheese
  • 1 loaf garlic french bread
  • sour cream
  • shredded chicken
  • green chiles (salsa also works great)
  • cheese
  • tortillas
  • chicken broth

Mix together your sour cream, chiles, and chicken broth on the stove top. Heat it up, and let it thicken a little bit.

Add whatever assorted seasonings you'd like. I usually use salt, pepper, and garlic powder.

Take your Garlic Bread now, and put 1/2 slice of cheese in between each piece.

Take about 1 cup of your sauce mixture out of the bowl and add about 1-2 cups of shredded chicken in the rest of the sauce in the pan. You could also add grated cheese to the sauce.

Seal up your bread in tin foil and throw that in the oven for about 15 minutes, enough to get the cheese gooey inside.

Fill your tortillas with your sauce and some cheese then fill your pan up. And remember that extra cup of sauce we set aside? Pour that over all the tortillas, and then sprinkle some cheese over the top. Cook for about 20-25 minutes, just enough to get the cheese melted.

Two cheesy meals. I love it.

Creamy Sour Cream Enchiladas
  • 1 16oz carton sour cream (dairy free)
  • 1 pkg (about 10 ct) tortillas
  • 1 can green chilies or about 1/2 cup salsa
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • about 2 cups shredded chicken
  • assorted seasonings like salt, pepper, and garlic powder
Mix together the sour cream, chilies/salsa and chicken broth on the stove. Add your seasoning as it's heating. When it's hot, scoop out 1 cup of your sauce to spoon over the top of the enchiladas. Add your chicken to your sauce in the pan, and some of your grated cheese (if not making this dairy free). Spoon mixture on the tortillas and roll up. Fill pan with tortillas, then spoon your sauce over the top. You can now bake to make it completely dairy free, or sprinkle the cheese on the top and bake at 350 for about 20 minutes.
