  1. Place the chicken breasts, garlic, onion, water, and chicken bouillon into a saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 40 minutes. When finished, remove the chicken to a plate to cool. Measure out 1 cup of the chicken broth and discard the rest.
  2. Roast the poblano chiles over an open flame, or underneath a broiler until the skin has blackened on all sides. Place the chiles into a plastic bag, or a bowl covered with plastic wrap, and allow to steam as they cool, about 30 minutes. When cool, peel the blackened skin off of the pepper, and remove the seeds and membrane.
  3. Place the reserved chicken broth into a blender along with the roasted poblanos and sour cream. Puree until smooth and set aside.
  4. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Fry the tortillas one at a time until softened and beginning to crisp. Place onto a plate and set aside. Pour the pureed poblano mixture into the skillet and simmer for 10 minutes. While the sauce is cooking, slice the cooled chicken breasts into 1/4 inch strips.
  5. Using tongs, dip a tortilla into the sauce, coating both sides. Place some of the chicken in the center of the tortilla, roll tightly, then place on a serving dish with the seam side down. Repeat with remaining tortillas. Spoon any remaining sauce over top of the enchiladas, then sprinkle with the shredded mozzarella cheese.

This was great. I made a few changes. I didn't fry in the tortillas in oil. I placed the chicken and some cheese in the tortillas, rolled them up and placed them in a baking dish, topped with ...

Soy del Sur de Mexico y nunca antes habia probado unas enchiladas con este sabor tan especial.

Delicious! I couldn't find the chiles, so I used four cans of Old El Paso Green Chiles instead and they have worked beautifully every time. I love this recipe.

Great recipe! Added half a cup of chopped cilantro and half a teaspoon of salt to the poblano mixture in the blender, as it seemed a little bland without it, and used pepper jack cheese rather t...

These enchiladas deserve ten stars. My partner of ten years, for whom I've been cooking steadily for ten years, announced these enchiladas to be the best thing I've ever made. They were unbeliev...
