White Chicken Enchiladas

These white chicken enchiladas are a decadent and delicious main dish treat

It’s that time again! And this week white chicken enchiladas were chosen. It was very Paula Deen. The amount of cream, cheese, sour cream, and butter that was called for in this recipe was obscene. I felt like my ass was getting bigger and bigger as I ate it. Needless to say, even though this was probably terrible for me, it was still delicious! I have several tweaks to this recipe, as I’ll note below, and so do the other bloggers so be sure to check them out to make sure when you make this, you won’t make the same mistakes as us and you’ll get some time-saving/calorie-saving tips too!

The lovely Tina from My Life as a Mrs. has the recipe on her blog today!

My notes about this recipe:

  • I didn’t roast the peppers, I was in the middle of moving this weekend so I didn’t have the time to roast and peel them. I just diced them and cooked them with the onions.
  • I halved the recipe and it still made plenty.
  • I only used 1/4 cup of cream.
  • If I were to make this again, I’d omit the sour cream.
  • I used way too much cheese. I probably wouldn’t use nearly as much as I did for the topping next time.
  • The dish was flavorful but I feel that it could’ve had more flavor from spices rather than dumping a bunch of cream and sour cream together.

Don’t forget to check out the other participants in PW Wednesday’s and their take on this recipe! After talking to them about it, I think we all modified this recipe a lot!

But where is the recipe (modified or not)? I see the links to other versions from other cooks, but not Jenny's. I just found this site, so just getting started...

Oh man do these ever look fantastic!! I love a good enchilada :) It sounds like Ree's version is comfort food to the max, but I bet a lighter version would still be pretty delicious.

I was a bit behind on my google reader so that's why I'm getting to this now. I love that you pointed out how your ass was getting bigger as you were eating this. It looks incredibly creamy and cheesy, which is signs of the ultiamte comfort food. And I don't mind if my ass gets bigger because it'll be totally worth it when I inhale this.
