To create sauce, melt 1 stick of butter in a saucepan on medium heat and add flour to create a roux.
Turn up heat to med-high and add 1 can of chicken broth. Stir until sauce is free of lumps.
Add second can of chicken broth and stir a few minutes until thickened. Add can of green chiles and stir. Turn heat down and add sour cream (be sure not to let sauce boil or sour cream will curdle).
Pour sauce on top of enchiladas in baking dish and add the rest of the cheese to the top of the enchiladas.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until sauce is bubbly and cheese is melted.
Try adding cumin to the sauce for a little change in flavor.
