Whisk in hot sauce and enchilada sauce until combined. Bring to a simmer and cook on medium-low for 5 minutes. Turn off heat and stir in the sour cream. Reserve.
  3. Filling:
  4. Combine chicken, cream cheese, 2 cups of cheese, 1/2 cup of Buffalo sauce, and a pinch of salt together in a large bowl.
  5. Blue cheese dressing:
  6. In a small bowl, combine all ingredients until creamy.
  7. Assemble:
  8. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 13x9 casserole dish with nonstick spray. Coat the bottom of the dish with 1 cup of the Buffalo sauce.
  9. Spread filling down the center of the flour tortillas and roll up. Lay seam side down in the baking dish. Cover with remaining hot sauce and sprinkle with the remaining 1 cup shredded cheese and blue cheese crumbles. Bake for 30 minutes, until cheese is melted and browning.
