Good Mexican Food Jennifer Grimaldo Good Mexican Food One meal I never order when I go to a Mexican restaurant its enchiladas! It never fails they are always disgusting. With that being said, I am going to provide the perfect recipe for sour cream chicken enchiladas. The following ingredients will need to be purchased: sour cream, jalapenos, onion, chicken broth, whole chicken, mozzarella cheese, corn tortillas, olive oil, butter, and flour. Pre-measure all of the ingredients before beginning. ½ cup of olive oil, ¾ cup of chopped onion, ½ cup of butter, ¼ cup of flour, 2 cups of chicken broth, 1 cup of sour cream, 1 can of jalapenos, 12 corn tortillas, and 2 packages of mozzarella cheese. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and set aside a casserole dish. Remove the gizzards from the inside of the chicken. Place the chicken in a stock pot and cover with cold water. Set the heat on the stove to medium and boil the chicken for an hour. The time may vary slightly depending on the size of the chicken. While the chicken is boiling, move on to the rest of the prep. Melt the butter, in a large skillet over medium heat. Add in the olive oil after the butter melts. Slowly add in the flour while constantly stirring at the same time. Stir until the lumps are gone and add in the chicken broth. Sour cream should be added in next and the jalapenos there after. Stir all ingredients until they are well mixed, but do not let the mixture boil. To prep the corn tortillas place a small amount of olive oil in a medium sized skillet. Turn the stove on medium heat. Once the olive oil is hot enough place one corn tortilla in the skillet at a time. Submerse in olive oil for 30-45 seconds and remove. The chicken should be done by now, remove the chicken from the stock pot and shred. Once the chicken is shredded, mix the chicken with the onion and half a bag of mozzarella
