  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup chopped onion (142 grams)
  • 4.5-oz can green chiles (128 grams)
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup chicken broth (250 ml)
  • 1 cup sour cream (227 grams)
  • 10 large flour tortillas
  • 2 cups cooked shredded chicken (250 grams)
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (226 grams)

Suggested toppings:

  •  Salsa

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a casserole dish and set aside.
  • Melt butter in large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and green chiles and cook until softened, 3-4 minutes.
  • Add flour and stir to combine. Add chicken broth a little at a time while stirring constantly, until all broth has been added and sauce is smooth. Stir in sour cream. Cook 2-3 until thickened.
