Chicken Enchiladas

So, here is the thing about family.  Sometimes they completely blow.  I mean, usually they rock but once in awhile there is one rotten egg and her name is Maegon.  She is very close to my age, she is my niece, we are more like sisters but none the less, she blows.  She won't share her chicken enchilada recipe with me.  I mean she just straight up said, "NO".  Well, nobody puts baby in a corner people, NOBODY. 

My niece claims to make the best, "Oh EVERRRYOONNE loves them" kind of crap.  She goes on and on and I said to her I wanted to make them and maybe share them, she replied as I said before, "Nope, it is my secret recipe".  Oh seriously?!?  She obviously isn't into the joy of sharing like a REAL foodie is and frankly I think MY recipe, might give HER recipe a run for its money.  You won't give me yours, excellent, I will make my own.  GAH! 

Been a long time since I started a blog with a rant, and about family of all things.  See Maegon, see what you DO to me?

Make this, and if you are really amazing, you could do a cheese sauce instead of just cheese over the top.  I didn't want to risk sliminess so I went with regular cheese over my sour cream!

I hope you enjoy this, easy and fun recipe.  As for my niece, we will talk about what to do with HER...........later.   (for anyone who doesn't know, my niece and I are very close and this is a complete joke, she knows I love her more than my pink bow bag xoxo)

3 cups of chicken, shredded
8 ounce brick of cream cheese, softened
1 1/4 cup sour cream (divided)
2-3 tbsps. of your favorite taco seasoning
2 cups shredded cheddar
1 cup shredded cheddar jack (or cheese of your choice)
1 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tap salt (optional)
10-12 soft flour tortillas

Combine all ingredients except flour tortillas in a large bowl and combine ingredients until all mixed.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.  Start filling your tortillas with filling.  Fill in a line across the middle and roll up and place in a 9x13 pan. Continue until all are in the pan.  Spread over 3/4 cup more of sour cream and top with 1 cup cheddar jack cheese or cheese of your choice.  Bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes or until heated through and the cheese on top is melted.

This is a nice mild flavor, nothing to spicy or kicked up, although you could add hot sauce or red pepper flakes to any part of the mix!

Also feel free to top this with any sort of "sauce" you like, I just wanted plain ol' cheese!
