Enchilada Sauce Can
Green Chilies

pour 1/2 enchilada sauce in bottom of a 9x13.
mix Chicken, Sour Cream, green chilies, and half the cheese in a big bowl.
separate the mixtures into 12-14 corn tortillas and roll them up.
place the tortilla rolls in the 9x13.
cover in the rest of the enchilada sauce and cheese.
