Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas

This is probably my most favorite enchilada recipe ever. These are my comfort enchiladas. They make my heart and tummy happy all at once.

For the Costco recipes, our list has you make 2 of these…these more laborious casseroles do better when you make two at once. You feel productive, and you don’t have to cook dinner twice. Double this recipe if following Costco Meal Plan #2
