So if you are wondering where the pictures to the next couple of steps are, it was too difficult to nurse my daughter, cook, and take pics all at the same time…. Sorry!!
Add 1/3 cup of the shredded chicken to the center of each tortilla, roll and place “seem down”  in a lightly greased, 13×9 (or larger) casserole dish. Repeat, until you’ve lined the bottom of your casserole dish and have run out of chicken :). (It’s OK if they overlap a bit.)
In a small bowl, mix cream of chicken, sour cream, and taco seasoning. 
Spread evenly over your rolled and filled tortillas.
Top with cheddar cheese.
Bake in the oven for 20 min, or until the cheese has melted.
Garnish with chopped tomatoes and cilantro (optional)
These enchiladas are delicious with homemade Mexican Rice!!
