Vivi's Chicken Enchiladas

This recipe is from a friend who lives in south Texas, and these are the best I've ever tasted!

CHICKEN ENCHILADAS

C butter or margarine
C all purpose flour
1 (10 -ounce) can chicken broth, undiluted
C water
1 (8 ounce) carton sour cream
2 canned jalapeno peppers, seeded and chopped
12 corn tortillas
Vegetable oil
C chopped cooked chicken
2 C shredded Monterrey Jack cheese, divided
C chopped onion
Enchilada Relish

Melt butter in a heavy saucepan over low heat; add flour, stirring until smooth. Cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Gradually add chicken broth and water; cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thickened and bubbly. Stir in sour cream and chopped peppers. Pour half of sour cream mixture in a lightly greased 12 x 8-x 2-inch baking dish; set aside dish and remaining sour cream sauce.
Fry tortillas, one at a time, in 2 T oil in a medium skillet 5 seconds on each side or just until tortillas are softened; add additional oil, if necessary. Drain on paper towels.
Place 1 T each of chicken, cheese and onion on each tortilla; roll up tortilla and place seam side down in reserved baking dish. Pour remaining sour cream sauce over top. Bake uncovered, at 425 for 20 minutes. Sprinkle remaining 1 C cheese on top, bake an additional 5 minutes or until cheese melts. Garnish cilantro and serve with Enchilada relish.

Enchilada Relish
1 large tomato, finely chopped
cup finely chopped onion
1 to 2 canned jalapeno peppers, seeded and chopped
cup tomato juice (I use V-8 Picante)
t salt
Combine all ingredients; stir well. Chill.

Do you think I could use the flour tortilas instead of corn? Nobody likes the corn ones around here....

Corn is authentic but I've had great flour tortilla enchiladas (which where more like baked burritos). In the end it comes down to taste.

I love enchiladas. I wonder what Cumin would do to this recipe. I'll have to try this next time I make them instead of my recipe.
