  • 2 cups cooked, shredded chicken
  • 2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 10 flour tortillas
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 can (19 oz) red enchilada sauce
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. In a large bowl, combine shredded chicken, 1 cup of shredded cheese, chopped onion, and cilantro. Season with cumin, chili powder, salt, and pepper.
  3. Heat vegetable oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Fry each tortilla for about 5 seconds on each side to soften them. Drain on paper towels.
  4. Pour half of the enchilada sauce into a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  5. Fill each tortilla with the chicken mixture, roll tightly, and place seam-side down in the baking dish.
  6. Pour the remaining enchilada sauce over the filled tortillas, covering them completely.
  7. Sprinkle the remaining 1 cup of shredded cheese on top.
  8. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  9. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes before serving.
  10. Serve with a dollop of sour cream on top.
