To make enchiladas, start with making cheese sauce. In a medium-sized saucepan, melt the butter, add the all-purpose flour and whisk for about a minute to create a roux.
Slowly and gradually pour in the chicken broth while whisking vigorously to prevent any lumps from forming.
Continue cooking and whisking until the mixture thickens. Stir in the diced jalapeños, and season with cumin, salt, and pepper.
Reduce the heat to low and add the sour cream. Keep stirring until the sour cream is incorporated. Remove from the heat, and set it aside while preparing the chicken filling.
In a medium-sized bowl, mix together shredded chicken with green onions, sweetcorn, ¼ of the creamy white sauce, and grated cheese along with salt, and pepper.
Prepare your baking dish by spreading a generous spoonful of white sauce on the bottom to prevent the tortillas from sticking.
Soften the tortillas before filling them to prevent them from cracking. Take a tortilla and spoon a generous amount of the chicken filling onto the center of the tortilla.
Roll it up tightly and place it seam side down in your casserole dish. Repeat this process with the remaining tortillas and filling until the baking dish is filled with enchiladas.
