To make the sauce, sauté half an onion with two cloves of garlic, then stir in half a teaspoon each of oregano, cumin and pepper, and two tablespoons of flour. As the onions begin to brown, lower the heat and add the can of tomatoes with the juice removed, a quart of chicken stock and a cup of chopped chiles, and simmer the mixture for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

While the enchilada sauce cooks, prepare 1 1/2 pounds of chicken breast in a skillet or on a grill as desired, and shred it. If you like, stir a quarter cup of chopped cilantro into the shredded chicken. Set the chicken aside, and shred about 6-8 ounces each of cheddar and Monterrey jack cheese, or whatever type you prefer. Wrap the chicken, less than half the cheese and some of the enchilada sauce in six to eight 8-inch tortillas, and line them in a baking pan. Cover the tortillas with the rest of the sauce and cheese, and bake until the cheese is golden brown and the sauce is bubbling.

Serve the enchiladas hot with a dollop of salsa and sour cream, if you prefer.
