Here’s an easy version of Chicken Cordon Bleu without all the fuss!  Chicken Cordon Bleu Enchiladas.  Soft flour tortillas all wrapped up with Swiss cheese, ham and chicken.  Then topped with a creamy Pepper Jack Sauce!  As you recall, I’ve made this cream sauce for the Naughty Fries to dip in.

I started making this hot meal for my boys when they come for lunch.  I wanted to use what I already had in the fridge from the night before and still be creative.  Besides, my family will eat anything if it’s stuffed in a soft tortilla.  So, I’ve been making this dish a lot them.  My older son even makes this for his roommates all the time.  It’s fast to put together, especially for a week night dinner!  Tip:  Use extra chicken that you’ve already cooked from a previous meal.  By doing this, it cuts your time way down.  This is a meal that is done and ready to eat in about 30 minutes!

Putting this all together is very simple!  First, start by making the Pepper Jack Sauce.  When you are done with the sauce, spread 1/2 of it into the bottom of a medium size baking dish.  (A size that will hold 6 rolled up tortillas.)

Lay out 6 (medium size) soft flour tortillas in a row on a clean surface.  (Like an assembly line.)  Have all of the ingredients ready to fill the tortillas:  Swiss cheese, deli sliced ham and (cooked) shredded chicken.

When you are finished layering each tortilla with the cheese, ham and shredded chicken, pour one spoonful of the creamy Pepper Jack Sauce on top of the chicken.  Tuck and roll each of the filled tortillas.  Lay the seam side down onto the sauce that is already in the bottom of the baking dish.

Top with the rest of the sauce and some cheese.  I used pepper jack cheese.  But you could use Swiss or any of your favorite cheeses.  Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 20 minutes or until all the cheeses have melted.
