This cheese sauce is also great as a dip for French fries, or anything, really.

8 ounces shredded extra-sharp cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 1/4 cups whole milk
1 tablespoon chopped hot red chile (or to taste)
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 small onion
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 (6 ounce) boneless chicken breasts, skinless, cut into chunks
Freshly ground black pepper
8 (7-inch) flour tortillas
Cilantro sprigs, for serving
How to Make It
In a medium saucepan, toss together the cheese and cornstarch. Add the milk and chile and bring the mixture to a simmer, stirring constantly. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
In a large heavy skillet, heat the oil over medium high heat until hot, then stir in the on-ion, garlic, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden, about 6 minutes. Stir in the chicken and cook until the chicken is cooked, about 5 minutes. Season the filling with salt and pepper to taste.
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Divide the filling between the tortillas. Roll each tortilla into a cylinder and place, side-by-side in a baking dish. Pour the cheese sauce over the tortillas and bake until hot, about 15 minutes. Sprinkle the cilantro over the enchiladas and serve.
