- 48 Conestoga® Flour Tortilla Dough (3060), prepared and kept warm

- 2 Tbsp. Salt

- 1 cup Cilantro, chopped
- 2 lbs. Cream cheese
- 1 lb. Sour cream
- 4 lbs. Shredded Jack cheese, divided
- Preheat convection oven to 350°F.
- Place seasoned (salted) chicken thighs in a large pot and cover with just enough water to submerge all of chicken. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer. Simmer for 30 minutes; partially drain, reserving 1 quart of cooking liquid.
- Place 1 quart of reserved chicken cooking liquid in cooler to cool completely.
- Let chicken cool slightly, then shred by hand. Set aside in cooler.
- Prepare Conestoga® Flour Tortilla Dough per package instructions and keep warm in tortilla warmer.
- Prepare Pioneer® Roasted Chicken Gravy Mix per package instructions, but instead of making the slurry with 1 quart of cool tap water, use the reserved quart of the cooking liquid.
- While gravy is simmering, sauté garlic in olive oil until golden (2–3 minutes), then add hatch green chiles. Add this to gravy, whisking to combine. Simmer for 5 minutes, then remove from heat and whisk in cilantro, cream cheese, and sour cream until combined and cream cheese is melted.
- Ladle 10–12 oz. of the sauce into the bottom of a full hotel pan and set aside.
- In a large bowl, add cooled shredded chicken and half of shredded cheese (2 lbs.); mix to combine. Then, fill tortillas with ¼ cup of chicken and cheese mixture, roll the tortillas and place seam side down into the dish. Repeat until you have filled the dish with the filled tortillas.
- Ladle enough sauce on top of the tortillas to cover. Then, spread the remaining shredded cheese on top of the sauce.
- Bake for 10 minutes, or until cheese is lightly browned on top.
- Serve leftover sauce on the side, or reserve for another use.
