    Servings and Ingredients

    Serves 6
    4 tbsp. Hy-Vee butter, divided
    1 c. chopped onion
    4 Hatch chile peppers, seeded and chopped
    2 c. chopped cooked chicken breast
    ¼ c. Hy-Vee flour
    ½ tsp. freshly ground Hy-Vee pepper
    2 ½ c. Hy-Vee reduced-sodium chicken broth
    1 c. Hy-Vee sour cream
    1 ½ c. shredded Hatch chile cheese, divided
    12 Hy-Vee (6-inch) flour tortillas
    Hy-Vee salsa, optional


    1. To make filling, melt 1 tablespoon butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Sauté onions and peppers until tender, about 10 minutes. Stir in chicken. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
    2. To make sauce, melt remaining 3 tablespoons butter in same skillet over medium heat. Whisk in flour and pepper and cook, whisking constantly, for 1 minute. Whisk in chicken broth. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Remove from heat. Stir in sour cream and 1/2 cup cheese.
    3. Stir 1/2 cup sauce into filling.
    4. Quickly dip each tortilla in remaining sauce. Fill each tortilla with about 1/4 cup of filling. Roll up and arrange in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Pour remaining sauce on top and sprinkle with remaining 1 cup cheese.
    5. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until bubbly. Serve with salsa, if desired.
