- To prepare tortillas, fill medium skillet with 1" of reserved chicken broth; bring to a simmer. Dip 1 tortillas in using tongs to soften. Spoon 1/2 c. Filling in center of tortilla, roll tightly and place in an 11"x7" baking dish. Repeat procedure with remaining tortillas and filling.
- Pour sauce over enchiladas. Cover and bake at 375* for 20 minutes. Uncover, sprinkle with remaining shredded cheese. Bake an additional 5 minutes, uncovered, until cheese melts. Top with sour cream.
