  • 1 cup chopped onion
    1/2 cup chopped green pepper
    8 tablespoons butter or margarine
    2 cups shredded cooked chicken, turkey, or beef
    1 4-ounce can green chili peppers, seeded and chopped (I use diced instead)
    1 3-4 ounce can olives, sliced
    1-4 cup all purpose flour
    3/4 teaspoon salt
    2-1/2 cups chicken broth
    1 cup sour cream
    1-1/2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
    6 12 -inch corn or flour tortillas

    Cook onion and green pepper in 2 tablespoons butter or margarine. Add chili peppers, olives, and meat.

    In same pan, melt remaining butter. Stir in flour and salt, then broth. Cook and stir till thickened and bubbly, then 1 to 2 minutes more. Remove from heat and add sour cream and 1/2 cup cheese.

    Stir 1/2 cup sauce into chicken. Dip each tortilla into remaining sauce. Top each with chicken, roll up. Arrange rolls in 9 by 13 pan, pour remaining sauce over, sprinkle with cheese. Bake

  • Do you care if it is fattening?
    I use 2 lbs ground beef, 2 packages taco seasoning, 1 large diced onion, 2 cans diced green chilies, and then drain.
    Wrap in corn tortillas then pour enchilada sauce lightly over.
    Melt the queso Velveeta and add 8 oz of rotel dip, pour cheese sauce over and bake for 30 minutes at about 350, garnish with lettuce, salsa, sour cream.

  • You can also just layer it instead of wrapping up the meat in the torts, like a mexican lasagna!

  • I keep it simple- I get the packets of enchilada sauce mix - *tried some canned stuff once and it was seriously nasty.
    I just use that- hamburger- cheese and the tortillas
    I layer it- like a lasagna (they don't break that way and it is just easier to do)
    we top it with lettuce and sour cream

  • *of course I make the sauce like it says- with the tomato paste or sauce or whatever- but I usually add a bit more sauce than the packet says
