  • 3 tablespoons butter

  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 2 cups chicken broth

  • 1 (4 ounce) can chopped green chilies

  • 1 (4 ounce) can sliced black olives

  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt

  • ¼ teaspoon dried oregano

  • teaspoon chipotle chile powder

  • 3 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

  • 1 cup sour cream

  • 12 (6 inch) corn tortillas, cut into bite-size pieces

  • 1 cup shredded Colby-Jack cheese, or to taste


  1. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in flour; cook for 1 minute. Whisk in chicken broth; cook and stir until sauce is smooth and thickened, 2 to 3 minutes.

  2. Stir green chiles, olives, salt, oregano, and chile powder into the sauce. Add chicken and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 15 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

  3. Remove chicken from the skillet, leaving heat on low. Place chicken on a plate; shred into bite-size pieces.

  4. Stir sour cream into the sauce. Return chicken to the skillet. Add tortilla pieces. Stir until combined and top with cheese. Cover and cook until bubbly and melted, 5 to 8 minutes.
