Could I use corn tortillas instead?

Corn tortillas might be a good substitution for flour tortillas in this sour cream chicken enchilada recipe. Corn tortillas are a bit more sturdy than flour tortillas, so they might hold up better in the casserole dish. They also have a slightly sweet flavor that could pair well with sour cream and chicken.

Can I use lower fat cheese or sour cream?

Yes, you can use lower fat versions of both cheese and sour cream in this recipe with a great outcome.

Can I spicy it up some?

Well, if you’re looking to add a bit more heat to your sour cream chicken enchiladas, you’re in luck, there are a few ways to make them a bit spicier:

  1. Use a hotter salsa. If you’re using a store-bought salsa, there are usually several different levels of heat to choose from. Pick one that’s closer to the hot end of the spectrum.
  2. Add diced jalapeños or hot peppers to the enchilada filling. These will add a nice kick of heat without making them too spicy for those who don’t like things too hot.
  3. Use pepper jack cheese instead of Monterey Jack. This will give the enchiladas a bit of heat without making them too overpowering.
  4. Serve with sour cream and/or hot sauce on the side for those who want an extra kick. This is a great way to let everyone customize their dish to their own liking
