  • 2 cans Campbell's Cream of Chicken soup
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 TBS butter or margarine
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 2 tsp chili powder

  • 8 oz chopped green chiles
  • 1 package of 8-10 flour tortillas
  • 12 oz bag co-jack shredded cheese
  • 2 TBS diced jalapeño peppers


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • In a small bowl stir together soup and sour cream until smooth. Set mixture aside.
  • In large frying pan (or 2 qt saucepan) over medium heat, add in hot margarine and cook onion and chili powder until onion is tender, stirring often.
  • Stir in chicken, chilies, and (4) TBS of soup mixture. Jalapeño peppers can be added to the mixture now, or to individual enchiladas in step #6.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Spread chicken mixture along center of tortilla.
  • Place enchiladas seam side down in a 13x9 baking dish.
  • Spread remaining soup mixture over enchiladas.
  • Sprinkle shredded cheese over the entire contents of the baking dish.
  • Bake for 20-30 minutes to melt cheese and warm the enchiladas.


Mission brand tortillas work better than Aztec brand.
Chicken can be cooked between steps #3 or #4 or can be grilled.
