1 1/4 cups sour cream
1/4 teaspoon chili powder

1 (1.25 ounce) package mild taco

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
3 cups Cheddar cheese, shredded, divided

1 (6 ounce) can sliced black olives

Directions

1. Cook Chicken and combine the cream of chicken soup, sour cream, and chili powder in a saucepan.

2. Heat the butter and onion a skillet over medium heat about 5 minutes. Add the shredded chicken, chopped green chilies, taco seasoning, chopped green onion, and water. Stir in the lime juice, onion powder, and garlic powder.

3. Preheat an oven to 350º F. Stir 1 cup of the soup mixture into the skillet with the chicken mixture. Spread the remaining soup mixture on the bottom of a 9×13 inch baking dish.

4. Pre heat Punky’s Soft Shells in a skillet or oven for about 1-2 minutes only to soften shell for easier rolling without cracking shell.

5. Fill each Punky’s shell with chicken mixture. Sprinkle Cheddar cheese over the chicken filling before folding the soft shells, reserve cheese for topping the enchiladas. Fold soft shells over the filling and place seam-side down in the prepared pan.

6. Pour enchilada sauce over the enchiladas. Cover with 1/2 cups of Cheddar cheese. Sprinkle the reserved chopped green onions and the sliced olives on top of the cheese. Bake in the preheated oven until filling is heated through and the cheese is melted about 20 minutes.
