Going green

Tomorrow's St. Patrick's Day. You know what that Green green everywhere. Now I'm not really a fan of making food green, but that doesn't stop me from making green food! Green enchiladas are "naturally" green, without any artificial coloring so they make a great St. Patrick's day meal. Who cares if they're Mexican!

Green Chicken Enchiladas
2 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
1 can diced green chiles
1/2 cup diced onion
2 cups shredded Mexican cheese
1 can (19 oz) green chili enchilada sauce
1/2 cup sour cream
10 flour tortillas

1) Preheat oven to 350. In large bowl, combine chicken, green chiles, onion, and 1/2 cup shredded cheese.
2) In another bowl, combine enchilada sauce and sour cream until well blended.
3) Add 1/2 cup of the enchilada sauce to the chicken mixture.
4) Add a small amount of the enchilada sauce over the bottom of a 9x13 in. baking dish. Evenly divide chicken mixture down the center of each tortillas. Roll tortillas up and place seam side down in dish.
5) Pour remaining enchilada sauce over the tortillas. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake 25-30 minutes, or until hot.
