San Joaquin Valley Enchiladas
Yield: 6 servings
Ingredients:2 to 3 pounds fresh asparagus, cleaned and trimmed
1/2 cup oil
12 corn tortillas
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1/2 cup flour
3/4 cup chicken broth
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup green taco sauce
3 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
3 cups shredded cooked white chicken meat
1/2 cup chopped onion

Instructions:Blanch and drain the asparagus. Cut into 1-inch pieces and set aside. Heat the oil in a large skillet and cook each tortilla until soft. Set on paper towels to drain. In a small saucepan, melt the butter. Add the flour, stirring to blend. Add the broth and cook until thick and bubbly, stirring constantly. Add the sour cream and taco sauce. Heat thoroughly.
