Flour tortillas – as many as you need for the
number of people you are feeding - at a minimum, 2
5-6 large chicken breasts (about a half breast per
1 large can of green chiles
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp cumin
1 pint sour cream (for every 2 dozen tortillas)
1-2 pounds grated cheese (for every 2 dozen tortillas)
1 tsp onion powder or onion salt. (If you using onion
salt, go easy on the regular salt)
Simmer chicken in enough water (and or chicken broth)
to just cover them until done. Add Salt and Pepper.
-Make sure you have enough broth to dip the flour
tortillas in to cover all of them with broth so if
that mean adding an extra can of broth, do so.
- Remove the chicken from the broth mixture and break
into bite size pieces – set aside.
- add a large can of chopped green chili’s to
- add about 1 tsp of garlic powder and a 1/2 teaspoon
of cumin and salt and pepper to taste.
- return the chicken “bits” ( a little
bit of Jolly old England there ;o) to the broth and
let them set to absorb the flavors of the spices etc.
You may want to add more spices but go easy –
a little at a time. You can add another can of green
chili’s without worry but the cumin needs to
be added with caution. If you are going to do this
– do it before you add the “bits”!
Cheese/Sour Cream Portion
- add a couple of cups of grated cheese to the sour
Then add about a teaspoon of onion powder or onion
salt. If you add the onion powder, then add salt and
pepper to taste. If you add the onion salt –
just add the pepper. Mix well.
- Wrap tortillas in a some paper towels, put them
in the microwave and nuke them for 2 minutes.
- Take a tortilla, dip it in the sauce containing
chicken bits and sauce, add some chicken bits, some
of the sour cream mixture, roll and place in buttered
- Okay – after you have finished, you will probably
have some sauce left over. I usually pour some of
that over the tortilla’s as long as it isn’t
too much – you don’t want them to be too
- Next sprinkle the top liberally with grated cheese.
The more the better – right?!?!?!? Okay –
don’t go overboard.
- Another word of caution. When it comes to spicing
things up. Don’t go overboard there either because
the spices intensify during the cooking process and
you might have some pretty hot tortilla’s –
more than you like (unless you're erin).
- Pop in the oven at 325 and cook for about a half
hour or until all the cheese is melted and things
