    Tbsp butter, divided

  • 1

    medium onion, chopped

  • 1

    medium-size red bell pepper, chopped

  • 2

    cups chopped cooked chicken

  • 3

    (4-oz.) cans diced green chiles, divided

  • 3

    cups (12 oz) shredded colby-jack cheese blend, divided

  • 8

    (8-inch) soft taco-size flour tortillas

  • 2

    Tbsp. all-purpose flour

  • 3/4

    cup chicken broth

  • 1/2

    cup milk

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350. Melt 2 Tbsp. butter in a large skillet over medium heat; add onion and bell pepper and saute 5 minutes or until tender. 2. Stir together onion mixture, chicken, 1 can diced green chiles, and 2 cups shredded cheese. Spoon a heaping 1/3 cupful chicken mixture on 1 end of each tortilla, and roll up. Arrange enchiladas, seam sides down, in a lightly greased 13 x 9 inch baking dish. 3. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes. 4. Meanwhile, melt remaining 3 Tbsp. butter in a heavy saucepan over low heat; whisk in flour until smooth. Cook, whisking constantly, 1 minute. Gradually whisk in chicken broth and milk; cook over medium heat, whisking constantly, 3 to 4 minutes or until thickened and bubbly. Remove from heat, and stir in remaining 2 cans green chiles. 5. Remove enchiladas from oven. Pour green chile mixture over enchiladas. Sprinkle with remaining 1 cup cheese. 6. Bake at 350 for 20 to 25 minutes or until bubbly. Serve with desired toppings.
