Easy Chicken Sour Cream Enchiladas

These Chicken Sour Cream Enchiladas and my favorite, more of a mild chicken and cheese comfort food. The sour cream and parsley (yes, I said parsley!) balance each other and give it a nice fresh taste. I choose to use mild red sauce because my kids will not eat spicy stuff....however, if you like spicy, get the medium instead of the mild.

Servings 8


  • 3-4 cups cooked shredded chicken I use cooked rotisserie chicken
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • ½ cup chopped parsley
  • 1 large can enchilada sauce La Victoria is my favorite
  • 3 cups shredded cheese I use mexican blend
  • 10-16 9" flour tortillas
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil


  • Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  • In a large pan over medium heat a teaspoon of olive oil. add the onions and cook until translucent. Stir often.
  • Combine chicken and onions in the frying pan. Stir until combined.
  • Pour ½ cup of enchilada sauce over the chicken and onion mixture – just enough to coat the chicken.
  • Step 4. Add sour cream and parsley. stir until combined.
  • Once the sour cream and parsley are fully combined, turn off the heat. now add the shredded cheese. i usually add 2 to 2-½ cups. Sometimes more. It just depends on how cheesy you want it. I like the mixture to be creamy and cheesy.Once the cheese is melted and combined with the chicken sour cream mixture.
  • Pour just enough sauce in a baking dish to cover the bottom of the dish. (UPDATED: spray pan with non-stick cooking spray first)
  • Fill the tortillas. spoon sauce onto a tortilla, and then some of the chicken mixture.
  • Roll the tortilla and place in the baking dish. repeat until enough tortillas fill your baking dish – or until the chicken mixture is all used up.
  • Pour enchilada sauce over the completed enchiladas and spread evenly over the top.
  • Top with shredded cheese and garnish with chopped parsley. covered with foil and bake for 20-30 minutes. Remove the foil for the last 10 minutes of cooking.
  • Bake until sauce is bubbling, tortilla edges are slightly crisp, and the cheese to melted.
  • Enjoy!
