Here is what you need:

*These are seriously so so good*
8- 10 flour tortillas
3 chicken breast, cooked and shredded
2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
3 Tbsp. butter
3 Tbsp. flour
2 cups chicken broth
1 cup sour cream (I replaced this with plain Greek yogurt)
1 (4 oz) can diced green chillies. You can also buy a fresh one and chop it!

What you do:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9×13 pan
Mix chicken and 1 cup cheese. Roll up in tortillas and place in pan.
In a sauce pan, melt butter, stir in flour and cook 1 minute. Add broth and whisk until smooth. Heat over medium heat until thick and bubbly.
Stir in sour cream and chilies. Do not bring to boil, you don’t want curdled sour cream.
Pour over enchiladas and top with remaining cheese.
Bake 22 min and then under high broil for 3 min to brown the cheese.

Green chili burritos

One of my all time favorites and probably the easiest to make, you hardly do anything!

What you need:

1 pork shoulder (size by your crowd)
1 10 oz can of green enchilada sauce
1 small can chopped Ortega chilies
1 package of flour/corn tortillas
1 can of refried beans
1 package of shredded cheese
Salsa of your choice

What to do:
Before you head for work: place the pork, enchilada sauce and the Ortega chiles. Turn on low and cook all day!
When ready to eat (usually. 6-8 hours) shred the pork and serve!

Mix the meat, beans, salsa and cheese in a tortilla for a yummy burrito!
