Chicken Enchiladas: New Gluten Free Recipe

I took this recipe from Pinterest.  Thanks to the Budgetsavvydiva, I found a winning recipe with some minor alterations.

They are called The Best Chicken Enchiladas. I would have to agree with her on that! 🙂

Grocery list:
10 soft corn tortilla shells (warmed up slightly in the microwave so they are pliable to wrap up)
2 cups cooked, shredded chicken
2 cups shredded cheese (I omitted the cheese because I am not a cheese fan and Aaron didn’t want additional cheese without him adding it himself)
3 Tbsp. butter
2 Tbsp. Corn Starch (I used about 3 times this much to get it really thick)
2 cups chicken broth
1 Clove of Minced Garlic
1/2 Teaspoon of Salt and Pepper
1 cup sour cream Fat free plain Chobani greek yogurt (my healthified alteration)
1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
1 Teaspoon of lime juice
1 bag of spinach
 
Get busy:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a 9×13 pan.

In a sauce pan – melt the butter and stir in corn starch and cook for one minute. Add broth and whisk until smooth. Keep over heat until it bubbles and becomes thick. Stir in greek yogurt, garlic powder, lime, salt and pepper. Do not let it boil.
Pour a little bit of sauce on the bottom of the pan to keep the shells from getting hard when cooked.
Fill tortilla shells with shredded chicken (I also added some spinach leaves to each wrap to get some greens in)
I just added some spinach on top of mine since I didn’t know how well Aaron would receive spinach in his Mexican food. Also put the leftover chicken on top of his side, (hence the chunks).
Pour the rest of the mixture over enchiladas.
Top with any cheese you might want
Bake for 25 min or until the insides are warm.
Yes, I might have dipped out a little sample while waiting on Aaron to get home from delivering sheep 😉
