How to Make Creamy Sour Cream Chicken Enchilada Skillet

Step 1: Mix the Homemade Taco Seasoning

If you have a package of taco seasoning on hand, you can skip this step and move onto preparing the chicken. I always have spices on hand and like to make my own seasonings.

To make homemade taco seasoning, in a small bowl mix together:
– chili powder 1 tbsp
– cumin 1 tsp
– garlic 1 tsp
– paprika 1/2 tsp
– oregano 1/2 tsp
– dried minced onion 1/2 tsp
– celtic salt 1/2 tsp
– pepper 1/4 tsp
Reserve 1/2 tbsp of the taco seasoning to make the creamy sauce. The rest of the taco seasoning will be used to season the chicken.

Step 2: Cook the Chicken

In a large cast iron skillet, place a couple tablespoons of butter or bacon. After skillet is hot, add chicken. Season on both sides with taco seasoning mix, then, cook chicken until no longer pink. Turn the burner off and allow chicken to slightly cool.

Once the chicken has slightly cooled, cut into small pieces or shred. Use kitchen meat scissors to cut the chicken into small chunks rather than shredding.
Leave the chicken in the skillet and prepare the creamy white sauce.

Notes

This recipe can be adapted to the taste that you and your family enjoy. For the creamy white sauce, adding jalapenos will give it some great spice. I have added green chilies as well as cilantro while making the sauce. If you choose to add extra ingredients, blend them in the blender with the cheese sauce.

Adjust the spices according to your taste. If you think it might be too spicy, don't add all of the taco seasoning when flavoring the chicken.

Adjust the salt to your desired taste.
