How to make it
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
- In a large pan, melt the butter and sauté the onion until soft (do not brown). Add the flour and cumin and cook for about a minute. Slowly whisk in the hot stock. Once it comes to a boil, lower the heat and add the salsa and pumpkin puree. Take off the heat and whisk in the sour cream. Taste for seasoning and add salt if needed.
- In a bowl, combine shredded chicken with scallions and season with salt and pepper. Have the grated cheese ready in another bowl.
- Pour a thin layer of the sauce on the bottom of a rectangular casserole dish. Place some of the chicken mixture on each tortilla with a little bit of cheese, roll and then lay the tortilla seam side down in the casserole dish. Pour the sauce over the enchiladas until they are covered (you may have some left over). Top with remaining cheese.
- Cover dish tightly with foil. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove foil the broil until cheese is lightly browned.
- Serve with sour cream, if desired. Refried black beans would make a great side dish :-)
- Note: I use homemade chicken stock from the carcass of the chicken I roast for this recipe- just add celery, peppercorns, kosher salt, bay leaf and onions. Cover with water, bring to a boil then lower to simmer for 2 hours.
