Chicken Enchiladas

I made a creamy chicken enchiladas awhile back for my Bunco group and they were a big success. I decided to stock my freezer with traditonal chicken enchiladas for while my parents are here watching Miss F while we take in the sights and food of Italy. Of course, I had to make a pan for us to have straight away. These were another great use of the Crockpot Chicken Soft Tacos recipe, which I still cannot get enough of.
Chicken Enchiladas with Red Sauce

Enchilada sauce:
2 tbsp canola oil
2 tbsp flour
2 tbsp chili powder
1 tsp ground cumin
14 oz can chicken broth
8 oz can tomato sauce
1 tsp salt
¼ tsp garlic powder

3 cups enchilada sauce (above)
1 recipe Crockpot Chicken Tacos
2 cups shredded Colby Jack cheese
16 six-inch corn tortillas

Heat oil in saucepan; stir in flour and chili powder, cook for 1 minute. Add remaining ingredients, bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes.

Add ½ cup cheese and ½ cup enchilada sauce with the shredded chicken. Stir to combine. Microwave the tortillas, 15 to 20 seconds, until soft.

Spread 3 to 4 tablespoons of the enchilada sauce in bottom of a 9x13 glass dish. Fill each tortilla with 2 spoonfuls of chicken mixture and roll up. Place seam side down in dish, side by side. Pour remaining sauce over, top with remaining cheeses and bake at 350 degrees F until bubbling- 15-20 minutes. Garnish with sour cream, green onions, and cilantro.

YUM! These are the best enchiladas I've ever made at home! I've tried a few recipes, but have been less than impressed. This recipe is a winner and it's going right into my recipe binder so I can make it again and again! I made the full recipe, but froze half. It was just as tasty even after it had been frozen and splitting the recipe into 2 yielded enough for 2 dinners and 2 lunches for both my husband and I. Thanks for a great recipe!

I just made these tonight after searching for a different enchilada recipe to use...and they were delicious! I will definitely be using it again in the future. Thanks for sharing :)

These were really good. I had ground beef already defrosted so we swapped out the chicken for ground beef, browned with a chopped onion and a tbsp of taco seasoning. Thanks for the great recipe. I'll try it with the chicken next time.
