10 flour tortilla ( soft, 6" or Taco size )
2 cups chicken light meat ( cooked, shredded )
2 cups monterey jack cheese ( shredded, or a Cheddar/Jack Blend )
1/2 teaspoon chili powder ( optional )
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin ( optional )

3 tablespoons flour
2 cups chicken broth
1 cup sour cream
1 Can (4 oz) green chiles ( diced )


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 9x11 casserole dish or pan
Mix chicken, 1 cup cheese and spices. Roll up in tortillas and place in pan.
In a sauce pan, melt butter, stir in flour and cook 1 minute. Add broth and whisk until smooth. Heat over medium heat until thick and bubbly. Voila! Veloute Sauce!!!!
Take the sauce off the heat and stir in sour cream and chilies. (Do not bring to boil, you don't want curdled sour cream)
Pour over enchiladas and top with remaining cheese.
Bake 25 minutes and then under high broil for 3 min to brown the cheese.

After broiling let the dish set for about 5-10 minutes in order to make serving them easier. (I know that's hard to do; you want to devour eat them right away!!)
