Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray 9 x 13-inch baking dish with nonstick spray.

Puree half of tomatillos in food processor. Stir together chopped tomatillos, pureed tomatillos, scallions, cilantro, jalapeno, garlic, salt, and black pepper in large shallow bowl.

Dip both sides of 1 tortilla in tomatillo mixture. Place tortilla on sheet of foil on work surface; top with about 3 tablespoons of chicken, 1/2 tablespoon of cheese, and 1 tablespoon of sour cream. Fold two opposite sides of tortilla over to enclose filling. Place enchilada, seam side down, in prepared baking dish. Repeat with remaining tortillas, chicken, cheese, and sour cream, making total of 12 enchiladas. Pour remaining tomatillo mixture over enchiladas and sprinkle with remaining 6 tablespoons cheese.

Cover baking dish with foil. Bake 20 minutes; uncover and bake until edges of enchiladas begin to brown and cheese is melted, about 10 minutes longer. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
