When the sauce has thickened enough, take off the heat and add the green chilis. Allow to cool slightly and then add the sour cream. Salt & Pepper to taste.
  3. While the sauce is cooling (before adding sour cream) Combine the chicken & 1 cup shredded cheese. Add a pinch of salt & pepper. Divide between the tortillas, rolling each and placing seam side down in casserole dish.
