Okay, here is the chicken enchilada recipe (the house still smells like garlic, by the way - it's so wonderful):

8 6-inch tortillas
1/2 c. chopped onion
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. ground coriander
1/4 tsp. pepper
2 tbsp. margarine or butter
3 tbsp. flour
8 oz. carton of sour cream
2 c. chicken broth
4 oz. can diced green chili peppers, drained
1 c. (4 oz.) shredded Monterey-Jack cheese
2 c. chopped cooked chicken (or turkey)

optional: sliced pitted ripe olives
optional: chopped tomatoes
optional: sliced green onions

Wrap tortillas in foil. Heat oven to 350 - warm tortillas for 10-15 minutes or till softened. (I never did this, but I'll stick in here in case you're ambitious.)
For sauce, in a saucepan, cook onion, garlic, coriander, and pepper in margarine or butter until onion is tender. Stir flour into sour cream; add to onion mixture. Stir in broth and chili peppers at once. (I never used the chili peppers, FYI.) Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Remove from heat; stir in 1/2 c. of cheese.
For filling, stir 1/2 c. of the sauce into chicken. Place about 1/4 c. of filling atop each tortilla; roll up. Arrange rolls, seam side down, in a lightly greased 12"x7 1/2"x2" baking dish. Top with remaining sauce. Bake, covered, in a 350 degree oven about 35 min. or till heated through. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake uncovered about 5 minutes more or till cheese melts. If desired, sprinkle with olives, tomatoes, and/or green onions. Let stand 10 minutes.

I hope it turns out as well for you as it did for me. As a side note, the coolest thing ever today was watching something Matt was selling on eBay - it went from $80.00 with about 7 minutes to go to a final sale price of $177.50. It was SO sweet to click refresh and watch the price go higher and higher. Not so sweet when you're a bidder, but more than fun as a seller. Or a seller's girlfriend. I know I get worked up about sports and stuff, but it's more fun when he's actually making some money!! He suggested getting popcorn to sit and watch the next item end. I am all for it - much better than a movie.
