1 pound ground chicken, browned
1/2 medium white onion, chopped
2 green chiles, like Anaheim, chopped and seeds removed
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
3/4 cup sour cream

Saute onion and chiles over low heat for 15 minutes to "sweat" and soften. Do not brown.
Add garlic and spices. Cook for five minutes. 
Stir with chicken and sour cream.
To soften tortillas, pour enough oil in a skillet to cover the bottom, and heat over low. 
Fry each tortilla for 15 seconds on each side, and drain on a paper towel. 
In a 9x13 baking dish, spread a light layer of sour cream sauce on the bottom. 
Fill each tortilla with a spoonful of chicken and chile mixture, roll and placed seam side down in sauce. 
Top with the rest of the sour cream sauce then the shredded cheese. 
Bake at 350* for 20 to 25 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
