Katie's Green Chile Chicken Enchiladas

I have yet to meet someone that doesn't fall in love with these enchiladas (and trust me, I have made them for a lot of people. When Matt makes new friends at work, he invites them over for enchiladas every time). When we invite friends over for supper and give them the option of what we are going to eat, the answer is always enchiladas.

about 2 lbs chicken, cooked and shredded (I always use a 2.25 lb bag of boneless skinless breasts)
4.25oz can of chopped black olives
3-4 green onions, chopped (both white and green parts)
1 large tomato, diced
2 cups shredded cheese (I have used cheddar as well as cheddar jack, both are delicious)
4.5oz can of diced green chilies
16 oz sour cream
1 can cream of chicken soup
8 burrito sized flour tortillas

In large bowl, mix chicken, black olives, onions, tomato, and 1 cup of cheese. Mix well.

In medium bowl, mix sour cream, cream of chicken, and green chilies. Spread about a cup of this onto bottom of a 9x13 pan. Divide chicken mixture evenly among tortillas.

Roll tortillas up and place in pan, seam side down. Cover with remaining sour cream mixture. Top with remaining cheese.

Bake @350 for about 30 minutes, or til cheese is bubbly and enchiladas are heated through.

The easiest way we have found to serve them is to cut them in half. It doesn't always look as pretty but it is so much easier to dish up!

These can be made ahead of time and placed in the fridge until ready to bake. Just remember to take them out about 30 minutes before baking (if not, they still bake just fine but will need to be in longer to heat up the inside).
