  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. Heat oil and butter in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add garlic and onion and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add chiles, salt, and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 minutes. Add 1 cup chicken broth and simmer until reduced by one-third, about 10 minutes.
  3. Bring seasoned chicken broth and remaining chicken broth to a gentle simmer. Working one at a time, very briefly dip tortillas into broth to barely soften. Transfer each tortilla to a large baking sheet (you may need 2 or 3 sheets). Do not overlap or tortillas will stick.
  4. Divide 1 1/4 cups cheese equally among tortillas and top each with shredded chicken, dividing evenly. Wrap tortilla around filling and transfer, seam-side down, to a 9- by 13-in. baking dish. I can fit 9 into a casserole dish.
  5. Pour chile sauce over enchiladas, add large spoonful of simmered chicken broth (left over from tortillas) over sauce and top with remaining 3/4 cup cheese. Bake until cheese is bubbling and browned approximately 15 minutes. Serve with sour cream and spanish rice. Ole!
  6. Note: I buy a whole seasoned chicken and put in the crockpot and set for 10 hours. This cooks the chicken slow and makes it easy to shred and give these enchiladas more flavor.
