Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°F. In medium sauce pan, saute garlic in butter  for about 1 minute on medium or high heat. Stir in flour let it cook for about 2 more minutes.

Next stir in the chicken broth, cumin, salt, pepper and bring to a simmer. Remove from heat and stir in the sour cream, salsa verde and cilantro until smooth, or at least as smooth as you can get.

Prepare a 9×13-inch baking dish with nonstick spray. Add about 1/2 cup sauce to the bottom of the pan and spread out until bottom of the baking dish is evenly coated.

Lay out a tortilla and add chicken, shredded cheese, and avocado to the end of the tortilla and roll. Then place the rolled tortilla seam-side down and repeat until the pan is full.

Pour the remaining sauce over the enchiladas. Cover with 1 cup of cheese and bake for about 20 minutes or until cheese is bubbling.
