Meal Deals: Sour Cream Enchiladas

So I bought 4 cartons of sour cream at Albertsons with the plan to make Sour Cream Enchiladas for dinner one day this week. It is a really good recipe. It has a good flavor without being spicy for the kids.

I gathered these items (this was to double the recipe). All were were purchased with coupons (minus salt, pepper and garlic powder)! The tortillas and sour cream were deals from this past week.

Sour Cream Enchiladas (makes one pan, you can double it and freeze some!)

1 16 oz. container sour cream (I use light)
1 small can green chilies (if you like spicy add some jalapenos)
1-2 cups chicken broth (I don't measure it)
2-3 chicken breasts, boiled and shredded
1 teaspoon garlic powder
Salt and pepper to taste
6-10 flour tortillas (or corn)
2 cups shredded cheese

1. Boil the chicken until all the way cooked. In the meantime combine sour cream, green chilies, garlic powder, salt and pepper in a large skillet. Add chicken broth until the it becomes desired consistency for the sauce. Let mixture simmer while chicken cooks. Cook over low heat.
2. Reserve 1 cup of sauce then add chicken. Simmer about 10 minutes.

3. Add a spoonful of chicken mixture into each tortilla. Add some cheese. Tip: I like to dip the tortilla in the mixture first so that it doesn't dry out while cooking.

4. Place filled tortillas seam side down in a large casserole dish. Top with remaining 1 cup sauce and cheese.

4. Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes until cheese is melted.
I served enchiladas with my $0.47 salad pack. Yummy meal, great deal!
