Roll each tortilla and place in glass baking dish with edge of tortilla downward to keep them closed. Pour remaining enchilada sauce over filled tortillas. Cover tightly with foil and bake at 350° for 30 minutes. Uncover and sprinkle top with 1 cup of shredded cheese. Return to oven until cheese melts. Top each enchilada with 2 tsp sour cream, 1/2 tsp pepper jelly, and a little chopped cilantro.

    Note: Duck or turkey can be substituted for chicken. Finely sliced green onions can be substituted for cilantro. Pepper jelly is a sweet and spicy jelly available in many grocery stores.
