    4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese, divided
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 cups chopped cooked chicken
  • 4 flour tortillas (8 inches)
  • Optional toppings: chopped tomatoes, sliced ripe olives and sliced green onions

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°. Mix first four ingredients until smooth.
  • In a small saucepan, heat butter over medium-high heat; saute onion until tender. Add garlic; cook and stir 1 minute. Stir in chilies and flour mixture. Bring to a boil; cook and stir until thickened, 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in 1/2 cup cheese and sour cream until cheese is melted.
  • In a bowl, mix chicken with 3/4 cup sauce. Place 1/2 cup mixture on each tortilla; roll up and place in a greased 11x7-in. baking dish, seam side down. Top with remaining sauce.
  • Bake, uncovered, 20 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining cheese; bake, uncovered, until cheese is melted, 5-10 minutes. If desired, serve with toppings.
Health Tip: Make a healthier version of this casserole: Use just ½ cup cheese, reduced-fat sour cream, white meat chicken and whole wheat tortillas.
