Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas

Submitted by: ACACIAHSKY

Introduction

My husband loves these enchiladas, but his version of this recipe is all fat, so I skinnied it down! I like to do this with leftover grilled chicken, but you can saute it with the garlic and chiles if you don't have any on hand.

    Thanks! I forgot to mention that you bake it at 350 for 30 min once you put it together, and I can't figure out how to edit it. D'oh!
