I made the following adjustments as well. I sauted my green pepper and onion in a smidge of olive oil and used 2 T butter as the roux base for the sauce mixed with 2 T flour instead of the 1/4 cup flour. Then I used half milk ( 2%) and half stock for the liquid to make the sauce a bit more creamy and smooth. I also used smoked cumin instead of coriander. Cut the sour cream to 1/2 to 3/4 of a cup too since I had a smooth base to start with anyway.
To the chicken vegetable mixture I added some additional spice with a bit of fresh garlic and next time I will add some diced jalapeno to kick it up. My biggest complaint is that the corn tortillas I used cracked when rolled (yes I warmed them). It may have been the brand, I salvaged the stuffing - heated the tortillas until hot and steamy and then rolled them and they were fine.
For cheese - next time I think I will use a blend of jalapeno jack or even some queso cheese.
Certainly will make it again with the adjustments I noted.
This was very bland! We had to cover it with salsa just to give it some flavor.
wow, these enchiladas are terrific! that sauce is what really makes it, and I thought mine were the best, I have incorporated this recipe with my own, and boy-what a match
Very rich flavor. Worth the time tgo make the sauce rather than open a can of dull cream of whatever soup.
My boyfriend is so picky about food he will only eat basic meat and potatoes the only vegi"s he will eat is broccoli and greenbeans. I have looking for more ways to cook different recipes and i made this dish and he absolutely loved it. He ask for it again already, it"s only been 4 days. Bonnie Reynolds, Madison Wi
