Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas

This sauce packs the most delicious, rich, and complex flavors that make these enchiladas taste like you’ve been working on them all day.  But in reality, this simple sauce only takes a few extra minutes to prep, and it’s made with a handful of everyday ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry.

Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas

This easy sour cream and chicken enchilada recipe is very flexible when it comes to ingredients.  So feel free to get creative and customize your chicken enchiladas however you like!  In general, you will need:

  • Chicken: I used boneless skinless chicken breasts, shredded. But you can use pre-cooked chicken (such as a shredded rotisserie or any leftover baked chicken) if you are looking to save time.
  • Sour Cream: For these delicious enchiladas, I used Hood Sour Cream. It’s made with high-quality ingredients, so whether it’s a holiday or every day, I like serving the best when sharing meals with friends and family. The sauce and drizzle are made with Hood Sour Cream.
  • Tortillas: Corn tortillas are traditional in enchiladas, but I typically use flour tortillas since they are much easier to roll.  Any of your favorite tortillas will work though. I also like using Low-carb tortillas, white, wheat, or spinach flavors.
  • Cheese: I like to use either Pepper Jack or Mexican-blend shredded cheese for these enchiladas.  But cheddar, Monterey Jack, or other shredded cheeses also work great.
  • Toppings: Chopped fresh cilantro, tomatoes, sliced avocado, scallions ( green onion) or diced red onion, Hood Sour Cream Squeeze, salsa, or whatever else sounds great to you.  When it comes to enchilada toppings, I love them all.

In addition to the tub containers that come in 16 ounces and 32 ounces, Hood Sour Cream has an easy to use a squeeze bottle with convenient and flexible packaging perfect for tacos, potatoes, desserts and anything else that you like to add sour cream to.

I like that Hood Sour Cream is made with real Hood Milk and Cream and comes from farmers who pledge not to use artificial growth hormones (rBST). Plus, Hood Sour Cream tastes wonderful on these cheesy chicken enchiladas.

Notes

TIPS FOR COOKING AND SHREDDING CHICKEN:

  • Chicken can be cooked in a couple of ways. You can roast a couple of chicken breasts in the oven. Just drizzle a bit of olive oil on them and season with salt and pepper and cook for about 35-45 minutes.
  • Or the chicken can be boiled. Or use a store-bought rotisserie chicken. Pending on how much time you have and what kind of flavor you want from the chicken. The roasted and rotisserie chicken are going to give you the most flavor.
  • Once the chicken is cooked, shred it using two forks. If you have a stand mixer, use the paddle attachment, put your chicken in the mixing bowl. Turn mixer on and within a minute your chicken will be perfectly shredded.
