Chicken Enchiladas With Green Chile Sour Cream Sauce

I made these again for the second time a while back, and like the first time, they were super. They are also really pretty simple to make, so that’s a plus. Everyone loved them, even Kaden, who normally wont even look at an enchilada.  I topped mine with a packet of Taco Bell hot sauce. I am a taco bell sauce hoarder. I love that stuff.
