Rabbit or Chicken Enchiladas

4 cups cooked rabbit meat, coarsely shredded (you can also use chicken or any other mild white meat in this recipe)
2 cups sour cream
Two 4 oz. cans diced green chilies
3 cans condensed cream of chicken soup (I used Pacific Natural Foods organic cream of chicken condensed soup)
3 cups grated cheddar cheese
3/4 cup chopped green onions
12 (8-inch) flour tortillas

Mix sour cream, green chilies, and chicken soup to make a sauce. Divide sauce in half. To one half, add rabbit & onions. Spoon rabbit mixture equally onto tortillas. Roll tortillas and place seam side down in a 9X13 inch casserole. Cover with remaining sauce. Sprinkle with cheese.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until hot and bubbly, or heat in crock pot on high until piping hot). 

For a pot luck dish, I put a smaller amount of filling in each to divide it among about 16 tortillas, stack them in a double layer in a large crock pot with half the remaining sauce and cheese on each layer (I grated a little extra cheese), cut the enchiladas in half down the middle of the crock pot, and heat on high for 30 to 60 minutes or however long it takes to get them piping hot.

Serves 12+

 Variations: Feel free to add or subtract things to taste.  Last time I made this without the green onions,  added mushrooms and roasted tomatoes,  used only two boxes of soup concentrate,  and substituted salsa verde for the chiles. It's wonderful garnished with red salsa and a little cold sour cream and cheese.
