Chicken Enchiladas

I got this recipe when I was a teenager from my Mom. We use to have a ward international dinner and this is one of the recipes that they use to make for the dinner. It has been a family favorite for years.

2 cups sour cream
2 cans of cream of chicken soup( you can just use one if you want more of a sour cream taste)
1 small can green chilies( I use mild chilies)
3 cups of your favorite cheese grated.....I usually use either cheddar or colby jack cheese. Save about 1 cup of cheese to sprinkle on top.
2 cups of cooked chicken diced
12-15 soft flour tortillas
1 large can enchilada sauce( I use mild because my family doesn't like hot things)
Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl.
Add about 2-3 T of mixture to a tortilla(I usually add a lot because the recipe makes a ton of filling). Roll up the shell and put into a large baking dish.
Pour enchilada sauce over all the enchiladas when the pan is full and sprinkle remaining cheese over the top. Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the inside is hot. I usually make a few cheese enchiladas for the kids for some reason they don't like the enchiladas.....but they will not even try them.

Sounds yummy to me too!

Patsy post your recipe with the white sauce next time you make them... I think pictures would help me, I totally goof it up everytime I make it. Your brother actually asked me to quit attempting it.
