  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 cloves garlic minced or 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • cup onion diced
  • 1 cup bell pepper diced
  • 7 oz diced green chilis canned
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Prepare chicken and shred, set aside
  3. Coat bottom of a large skillet with olive oil. Warm over medium high heat.
  4. Place diced onion, bell pepper, and garlic in warm skillet cooking for about 3 minutes or until onions start to become tender. Turn heat down to low cook for another 3 to 5 minutes until onions are transparent. Add cooked chicken to the skillet and allow to warm, stir occasionally.
  5. Spray a 9x13 pan non-stick cooking spray.
  6. On the side of a large flour tortilla place chicken and cheese, roll and place into your casserole dish.
