This is a very quick, satisfying and easy-cheesy chicken meal that the whole family will love. It is also a great “go to” recipe when you have unexpected guests for dinner. It also reheats well.

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium onion chopped
(1) 4½ ounce can of chopped mild green chilies
pinch of crushed red pepper flakes
½ cup sour cream
3½ cups of cooked chicken (chopped or shredded)
black pepper to taste
(8) 8” spinach flavored tortillas
4 cups Monterey Jack cheese shredded (divided)
1 can of cream of chicken soup
¼ cup of chopped onions
¼ cup chopped celery
¼ cup chopped carrots
2 heaping teaspoons of chicken bullion granules
1½ cups of half & half
¼ teaspoon black pepper

Sauté the chopped onion in the olive oil for about 5 minutes; add the chilies and red pepper flakes and sauté for 1 more minute. Add the sour cream, chicken pieces and 2 cups of the Monterey Jack cheese.

Spoon 2 big spoonfuls of chicken-cheese mixture onto the tortilla (dust lightly with black pepper) and roll up. Place, seam side down in lightly greased 9x13 baking dish.

Saute ¼ cup finely diced onion, ¼ cup finely diced celery and ¼ cup finely diced carrot until almost tender. Whisk the sauted veggies, bullion, half and half and pepper into the cream of mushroom soup until smooth and lump free. Pour over the chicken wraps and cover with remaining 2 cups of cheese. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and brown. Let chicken wraps sit for a few minutes before you try to cut them.
NOTE: A whole pre-roasted deli chicken (cut into pieces) works great for this recipe.
NOTE: If I have the time, I put 4 chicken breasts into the crockpot along with a box of
chicken broth (not bullion) and some onions and celery and let it cook on low overnight. The next morning, I put the chicken into the fridge and save the chicken stock for soup or another dish (it freezes well). The super tender chicken pulls apart easily to make this enchilada dish.
