Creamy and delicious, these sour cream enchiladas are a family favorite. The flavors are mild and kid-friendly and they make great leftovers!
It only seems right and fitting that I kick off my Church Cookbook Series with Sour Cream Enchiladas. This meal has been a favorite in our family for many years.
My mom put the enchiladas in our church cookbook years ago and makes them for special occasions and potlucks all the time.
I entered the same Sour Cream Enchiladas a few years later in another church cookbook. They are easy to make, taste delicious and you can feed a crowd. This is the meal that we request for our birthdays and family gatherings.
What you need to make Sour Cream Enchiladas
- cream of mushroom and/or cream of chicken soup
- canned green chiles
- sour cream
- leftover cooked chicken
- cheese (I like Colby Jack)
- flour tortillas
Unless I really don’t have any available, I always add chicken to ours. It stretches the meal much farther and adds another layer of flavor.
I like to use leftover chicken breast, but dark meat works just as well. It’s also a great way to use a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store.
Even if you hate sour cream, you need to give these enchiladas a try. It just works.

Sour Cream Enchiladas

- In a saucepan, heat soup and chiles almost to boiling.
- Remove from heat and add sour cream
- Place 2-3 tbsp of soup mixture onto a tortilla and sprinkle with cheese (add chicken if you'd like)
- Roll up and place side by side in a 9"x13" (they will be tight- cram them in there!)

- Bake at 350° for 30 minutes. Let sit for about 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
