I grew up eating a lot of enchiladas, but they were all made with red sauce. So when I first tasted white sauce enchiladas I was in heaven. The rich creamy flavor is perfect; I’m drooling just writing about them!

I think some people assume that white enchiladas won’t be as spicy as their red sauce amigos, but serve them with some green salsa verde and you’ll realize the taste is amazing. A key component in making this sauce is Yoplait Greek Yogurt.  Used in place of sour cream, the yogurt is healthier with fewer calories and adds a great taste to the sauce. Yoplait Yogurt isn’t just for breakfast anymore; you can use it in savory dishes, desserts and even smoothies! Try it and I bet you’ll love it.

Preheat your over and prepare all of the ingredients by having them ready to go. Rotisserie chicken makes this recipe even easier!

Tortillas, plain yogurt, shredded chicken, shredded cheese, chicken broth

Melt the butter and add the flour—whisking as you do it.
