Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon chipotle chili powder optional
  • 1/4 teaspoon oregano
  • 4 ounces chopped green chiles
  • 4 ounces chopped black olives
  • 3 whole boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 12 whole corn tortillas cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 cups colby-jack cheese grated

Instructions

  • In a large skillet, heat butter over medium heat until melted. Stir in flour, cook for 1 minute and whisk in chicken broth. Continue stirring until smooth and thickened-- about 2-3 minutes.
  • Stir chipotle chili powder, salt, oregano, green chiles and black olives into the sauce and place chicken breasts into pan. Bring to a simmer, reduce heat to low, cover and cook about 15 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
  • Remove chicken from pan, leaving the heat on low, and place chicken on a plate to shred into bite-sized pieces.
  • Stir sour cream into the sauce and return chicken to the pan along with the tortillas. Stir until combined and top with grated cheese. Cover pan and cook for 5-8 minutes until bubbly and the cheese is melted.
