Just a few simple ingredients plus Grandma’s secret family recipe make these Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas perfect for a quick weeknight supper.
Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas
This recipe is from my husband’s grandmother. She was an amazing home cook and I’m lucky to have a lot of her handwritten recipes in my collection. I honestly though sour cream chicken enchiladas were going to be a pain to make, but they are super easy. In fact, this is more of a sour cream enchilada casserole and that makes it even easier.
Do you like your enchiladas stacked, rolled, or in casserole form? Honestly…as long as it’s an enchilada I don’t care how it’s prepared. However, weeknights are insane here, so I pretty much only make them casserole style.
Enchilada Casserole Tip: Cut 3 tortillas in half to fill in the gaps on the sides of the pan. (see below) It ensures that there isn’t too much tortilla to filling ratio…cuz we all know enchiladas are all about the filling!
I love using the best ingredients. From Shamrock Farms Organic Sour Cream to my favorite brand of corn tortillas (flour tortillas work too if that’s what you prefer). I also use a blend of monterey jack cheese and cheddar cheese for more flavor. For the shredded chicken, I’ve cooked my own chicken breasts, but the easiest option is to shred the leftovers from a rotisserie chicken. To keep things easy, I also use a can of cream of chicken soup.
This dish is such a great party recipe too. It feeds a lot and everyone loves them. I’ve made it for holidays (Christmas Eve dinner), potlucks, parties for sporting events (think March Madness or the Superbowl). It really is a great addition to any event!
Can you freeze sour cream enchiladas?
Yep, totally! And yes, even though there is sour cream. Because it’s baked the sour cream will be just fine after it’s cooked. So go ahead and prep two pans…one for now and one for next month.
Can you make sour cream enchiladas in crock pot?
Heck yeah! Just spray the crock with non-stick cooking spray and layer everything in the crock just like you do in a baking dish and turn it to low for 4 hours. Super easy!
