Ingredients

Adobo seasoning:
1/4 cup sweet or smoky paprika
3 tablespoons ground black pepper
2 tablespoons onion powder
2 tablespoons dried oregano (preferably Mexican)
2 tablespoons ground cumin
1 tablespoon ground chile de arbol
1 tablespoon garlic powder
Enchiladas:
2 cups, cooked shredded chicken (about 2 large chicken breasts)
2 cups shredded Monterey Jack Cheese
1 medium onion, diced
Adobo seasoning to taste
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons flour
2 cups chicken broth
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 cup sour cream
2 cans (4 ounces each) diced green chiles
10 corn tortillas
Cooking spray

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. In a small bowl, mix combine adobo seasoning ingredients, crumbling oregano well. Store the portion not used immediately in a jar. To prepare enchilada filling, mix together shredded chicken and 1 cup of shredded cheese, plus 1/2 of the diced onion, in a bowl. Season with a little adobo mixture, to taste. Set aside. In a 10-inch skillet, melt butter. Stir in flour and let cook and thicken for 1 minute (don't let it burn). Add chicken broth and whisk until smooth. Add 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin. Stir in chiles and remaining onion. Take sauce off the heat. Stir in sour cream. To assemble, spray each tortilla, front and back, lightly with cooking spray. Place on baking sheet in the oven for 2 minutes. Remove from oven and, using tongs, dip each tortilla in sauce and let drip off. Spoon chicken mixture in tortilla and roll up, then place in prepared baking dish, seam side down. Repeat with all tortillas. Pour remaining sauce over the enchiladas. Top with remaining shredded cheese. Bake for about 25 to 30 minutes. If you'd like, you can turn the broiler on high and broil these for a minute or two until cheese is slighly browned and bubbly.
