The best enchilada ever either in or out of restaurant. I couldn't find green taco sauce so I used green enchilada sauce. I also returned the dish to the oven for 15 minutes after topping the enchiladas with the sour cream sauce to warm it. The next time I make it I plan to decrease the sour cream by probably half. If it turns out any better, I will jump in it and swim.:))
Chicken Enchiladas are a favorite Tex-Mex one-dish meal for most families. They're an easy make-ahead meal that can be frozen for up to one month. Think about these enchiladas when time is tight.
