  • 1/2 cup chopped parsley
  • 1 large can enchilada sauce (La Victoria is my favorite)

  • 10-16 flour tortillas


  1. preheat oven to 350ºF.
  2. in a large pan over medium heat a teaspoon of olive oil. add the onions and cook until translucent. stir often.
  3.  combine chicken and onions in the frying pan. stir until combined.
  4. pour 1/2 cup of enchilada sauce over the chicken and onion mixture – just enough to coat the chicken
  5. add sour cream and parsley. stir until combined.
  6.  once the sour cream and parsley are fully combined, turn off the heat. now add the shredded cheese. i usually add 2 to 2-1/2 cups. sometimes more. it just depends on how cheesy i want it. i like the mixture to be creamy and cheesy.
  7. once the cheese is melted and combined with the chicken sour cream mixture.
  8. pour just enough sauce in a baking dish to cover the bottom of the dish. (UPDATED: spray pan with non-stick cooking spray first)
  9. fill the tortillas. spoon sauce onto a tortilla, and then some of the chicken mixture.
  10.  roll the tortilla and place in the baking dish. repeat until enough tortillas fill your baking dish – or until the chicken mixture is all used up.
