I’m SO excited to finally share the recipe for my Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas! As you may have guessed, there’s definitely a shortage of good Mexican food here in Mississippi. 😉 Not to worry, these enchiladas have been my saving grace! I may go as far as to say that these are the best sour cream enchiladas I’ve EVER tasted! The sauce is so delicious, you’ll want to lick your plate! Not to mention, they’re beyond easy to make! The key? Rotisserie chicken + green chiles for the filling, and I love not having to cook the chicken myself. 🙂
Hospitality is the REAL DEAL in the “Deep South” just like it is in Texas. Every single surrounding neighbor brought us dinner the first week we moved into our home. I love to tell that story to people back in Texas! We are SO appreciative for our tight-knit community, especially with my husband being in residency. Sharing meals with neighbors has had a major influence on my food blog. I truly believe that sitting around the table every night is one of the BEST investments you can make when it comes to friends & family! This recipe is my absolute “go-to” when it comes to taking meals to neighbors or friends! I love to pair the enchiladas with Sopapilla Cheesecake for dessert (coming soon!). Enjoy y’all!

2 (10 ounce) cans green enchilada sauce
1 (10.5 ounce) can condensed cream of chicken soup
1 (8 ounce) container sour cream
4 cups shredded meat from 1 rotisserie chicken (store-bought)
1 (4 ounce) can diced green chiles
12 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese
4 ounces Monterrey jack cheese
10 (10-inch) soft flour tortillas
1 lime, sliced into wedges
1 vine-ripened tomato, chopped
1 avocado, sliced
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Grease a 9×13 inch deep baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
- In a medium bowl, combine the chicken and chiles. Set aside.
