Chicken Chalupas

This is a quick and easy recipe that we love to make. It comes from my mother-in-law and it’s so delicious. It makes a lot so I halve it most of the time if it’s just for the two of us. A fun twist on traditional enchiladas. And did I mention it’s easy? 🙂

Chicken Chalupas

12 smalls flour tortillas
4 larges boneless skinless chicken breast halves, cooked, skinned, and boned
2 cans cream of chicken soup
1 pint sour cream
3/4 pound Monterey Jack cheese, grated
3/4 pound Tillamook cheese, grated
