1/2 pint sour cream
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded

1/2 cup water
1TB chili powder
1/3 cup green bell pepper, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
Flour tortillas
1 jar enchilada sauce
3/4 cup cheddar cheese, shredded

1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. In a medium skillet, cook chicken until done. Drain excess fat.
3. Cube or shred chicken and return to skillet. Add onion, sour cream, cheddar cheese, parsley, oregano, and pepper. Heat until cheese melts.

4. Stir in salt, tomato sauce, water, chili powder, green pepper, and garlic.
