Ingredients:  
2 tablespoons butter
2/3 cup chopped Spanish onion
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
1 cup chopped green chili peppers
1 clove garlic, minced
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 dash ground cumin
12 (8 inch) corn tortillas canola oil for frying
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese

1 pint cherry tomatoes

Directions:
Directions:
Prepare salsa verde: Melt butter in saucepan over medium heat. Saute the onion until soft. Stir in the flour. Add the broth, then add the chilies, garlic, salt, and cumin. Simmer about 15 minutes to blend flavors, then set aside. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a heavy skillet, lightly fry tortillas in shallow oil, being careful not to make them too crisp to roll. Combine the cheeses and keep 1/2 cup aside for topping. Dip each tortilla in salsa verde (both sides.) Place 2 heaping tablespoons chicken and about 2 tablespoons cheese down the center of each; roll and place seam side down in a shallow dish.

After all the rolled tortillas are in the dish, spoon additional salsa verde over them and then cover evenly with heavy cream. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup cheese mixture, and with the green onions.

Bake uncovered in preheated oven for 20 minutes. Serve immediately, garnished with the olives, cherry tomatoes, and with additional salsa on the side. Serves 6

Personal Notes:
These are so good it's sickening really. The creamy sauce is so wonderful and a nice change from the red sauce on traditional enchiladas. I had this a lot when I traveled to Nevada.
