Roll up your tortillas and place the crease side down in a baking dish. Now in a pan, you are going to melt butter and mix in the flour. Cook for a minute, stirring constantly.
Now add in your chicken broth slowly, and cook for 10 minutes to thicken the sauce. Add in the cheese, green chilis, and spices along with sour cream. Pour sauce over tortillas and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake as directed.
Once close to done, broil to get it nice and golden brown on top. Then top with your favorite toppings, and dive in! These are so delicious.
What To Serve With Enchiladas
You can ultimately serve this plain or even pair with Mexican cauliflower rice for a low carb side dish. Or do a green salad as the side, or eat it plain with nothing on the side.
You could also do a simple pico de gallo on the side for something light. Or if you are not looking for a low carb do refried beans or even classic Mexican rice.
Storing And Meal Prep
Store your leftover enchiladas in the fridge for 2-3 days. Always use your best judgment when reheating. You can warm these up in the microwave, cover, and place them in a dish, and heat them in the oven.
For meal prepping these enchiladas do reheat really well. You can store in single-serve containers, and reheat. Or freeze for a meal later down the line. Freezing will soften them a bit but they will stay tasty and offer great texture.
