2 tsp ground cumin
(1tsp plus 1 teaspoon)
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup flour
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup half and half
1 tsp salt
Freshly ground pepper to taste
1 pint sour cream
1 pkg (12) 6 inch corn tortillas
Picante sauce
1/2 lb. cheddar cheese, grated

Poach chicken, debone and chop. Season with one teaspoon cumin and chili powder.

Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, until cheese has melted and it's bubbling around the edges.
