  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts cooked and shredded
  • 9 10-inch flour tortillas
  • 1 28 ounce can green enchilada sauce
  • 2 cups Monterey jack cheese shredded
  • 1 8 ounce container sour cream


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 8x11" baking dish.
  • Pour 1/4 of the enchilada sauce on the bottom of the baking dish.
  • Rip up 3 tortillas and cover the enchilada sauce layer. Top with half the chicken, 2/3 cup of cheese, 1/2 cup sour cream, and another fourth of the enchilada sauce. Repeat.
  • Top the last layer of tortillas with the last of the enchilada sauce and the last 2/3 cup of cheese.
  • over and bake for 45 minutes. Serve warm.


I like it best served with a little extra sour cream, tomatoes, and cilantro.
