Simply Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas

Simply Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas

These were really good - good Mexican taste and not spicy at all. I served them with Taco Rice. I used the leftover grilled chicken from last night and it tasted great! I also used sharp white cheddar cheese (b/c I had some leftover from another recipe) I liked this recipe because it didn't have cream of chicken soup in it. I cut the recipe in half and it was still too much. I'll eat the leftovers for lunch tomorrow.
