2 cups shredded mexican cheese
3 Tbsp. butter
3 Tbsp. flour
2 cups chicken broth
1 cup sour cream
1 (4 oz) can diced green chillies

1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp Chili powder
1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a 9×13 pan using non-stick cooking spray.
2. Mix cooked chicken, chili powder  and 1 cup of cheese together.  Roll up in tortillas and place in pan.
3. In a medium sauce pan, melt butter, stir in flour and cook 1 minute.  Add broth and whisk until smooth.  Heat over medium heat until thick and bubbly.
4. Stir in sour cream, can of chilies, cilantro, black pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder.  Make sure that you don’t bring this to a boil- you don’t want to have curdled sour cream!
