Cheesy Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas

My husband has declared these to be the BEST enchiladas ever! I was very pleased with the outcome. I came up with this recipe in order to use up some leftover ingredients - roasted chicken, zucchini, carrots - from a recipe I made earlier this week that will post at a later time. I hope you enjoy the results as much as we did!

3 T olive oil
6 white corn tortillas
1/4 cup onion, chopped
1/4 cup zucchini, chopped
1/4 cup matchstick carrots
1 serrano pepper, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
4 oz velveeta, cubed
1/4 cup Philadelphia cooking creme, Santa Fe blend
1 1/2 cups roasted chicken, shredded

Heat oil in skillet. Add corn tortillas, one at a time, heat for about 10 seconds. This will enable you to roll the tortillas without them tearing. Place on paper towels to drain off excess oil.

Add onion, zucchini and carrots to oil remaining in skillet. Cook for about 2-3 minutes. Add serrano and garlic and continue cooking for about 1 minute. Stir in chicken, cooking creme and velveeta. Heat until velveeta cubes are very soft but not completely melted. Spray baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Fill each tortilla with 1/3 cup mixture, roll and place in baking pan (I actually fill and roll mine in the pan itself).
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and make sauce.

1 cup sour cream
1/3 cup Philadelphia cooking creme, Santa Fe blend
2 T milk

Mix all ingredients. Pour on top of enchiladas. Top with a generous layer of shredded cheese. Heat in oven for 10-12 minutes. Serve and enjoy!

  1. Follow this recipe exactly and you'll end up with the best enchiladas EVER!! Hubby approved!!


  2. You do interesting things with tortillas.

  3. Made this again recently but with improvements. The local store does not carry cooking creme, so I subbed jalapeno dip, this made them much creamier. I left out the carrots and double the zucchini, chopping it more finely. I also chopped the velveeta into smaller cubes - so it melted instead of just softening. Overall we liked this version MUCH better!

  4. This recipe is one that got one of highest number of clicks so it is being featured, starting Wednesday. Thanks for sharing this and I am glad others like it, as much as I do.
