Chicken Sour Cream Enchiladas

In my little room at work, I share this space with two wonderful women, Patsy and Janet. I am consistently prying their minds on how to make authentic Mexican dishes. On one occasion, we discussed cooking Mexican rice and I decided I would go home and make it. Well, lets just say even with their advice it didn't come out very well. I don't do rice, never have and thus the reason I have never blogged about it! The other day, we were discussing enchiladas and they looked me like I was nuts when I said I had never made them. I knew right then that was the next thing I had to try and make. They looked pretty easy and I didn't think I would be able to mess them up. David loves enchiladas especially his moms recipe. I would have asked for her's but she has been up in Oregon helping his grandparents, as they have been sick. So, I resorted to my good ole friend the Internet. I knew he liked his enchiladas creamy and with green chilies and I found this recipe on The recipe was really easy and David loved them. He said they very close to his moms so that made the recipe even better. I made some modifications and they are included in the recipe below.
