Skinny Sour Cream Enchiladas

So today I got up and was feeling better then I have been so I decided to take a walk in a local cemetery, sounds ghoulish I know but they have some cool Civil War graves there. Sadly walking around for 30 minutes really did me in and I had to go home and lay down for a 2 hour nap, this dang infection really saps the strength. But on a good note I put some chicken breasts in the crock pot for tonight’s dinner instead of boiling it on the stove like I planned! After it was done the rest was a breeze…so glad I decided to use to crock pot or else it might have been TV dinners lol!

All you do is boil your chicken and shred it up then combine the sour cream, cream of chicken soup, milk and cilantro in a sauce pan. Cook until heated (careful it boils quickly and like she said in the blog “Will make a huge hot mess if you don’t keep stirring. I learned the hard way. Twice.”) then put aside.

Sauce and Chicken mixture cooking!

Get out a frying pan and add your chicken, onions (if you used them I didn’t), ro tel, and green chilies and cook until onions are clear or the mixture is hot. Put 2 tbsp chicken mixture into a tortilla, roll, and top with the sauce and cheese. Bake at 350 until golden bubbly!

Yummy!

Yummy!

Looks so good doesn’t it?? Yes it did taste as good as the picture looks!! 😉

Tips from me: 

1. If you like big, fat, stuffed enchiladas then you will have to add more of the chicken mixture since the recipe calls for only 2 tablespoons.

2. I had extra chicken left over so instead of getting rid of it I added it to the top of my boyfriend’s before baking it.  Makes it more “meaty” for then men folk out there lol 😉

3. Next time I make these (oh yes there will be a next time!) I will reduce the amount of sour cream since it overpowered the taste of the cream of chicken. I am not a fan of sour cream (unless cooked like this) so this is just my preference. I will also drain the ro tel (the recipe didn’t specify.) since it was hard to roll them with the juices dripping everywhere.

Hope you like this as much as I do! I am having so much fun doing all these pins and I hope you guys are enjoying the as well!!

Happy Pinning!!
