Creamy White Sauce Chicken Enchiladas

In our home, Mexican is always a favorite cuisine. Kyle would choose a Mexican dish every night of the week if he could, so I challenge myself to create the best recipes to add to my cookbook. 



These enchiladas are so easy to make and keep my picky eaters satisfied!  With a shredded chicken filling rolled in a soft flour tortilla and smothered in delicious creamy sour cream and cheese sauce, what’s not to like!?  Top it however your heart desires; cilantro, chives, olives, or tomatoes!  Serve with some beans and rice for the ultimate Mexican meal.
