This is a recipe that I came up with in high school that I absolutely love. You have to like green taco sauce! If you like green taco sauce then I know you will like these super yummy enchiladas.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • cooking spray
  • 1 cup onion (chopped)
  • 1 12 cups cooked chicken breasts (I usually cheat and get the already cooked chunks of chicken in the deli section)
  • 1 cup picante sauce
  • 4 ounces cheddar cheese (grated)
  • 3 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 8 flour tortillas
  • 1 12 cups green taco sauce (I use the bottled sauce that you can't read the label because it's in Spanish, that's the good stuff)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F
  2. Place a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat until hot.
  3. Add onion, and sauté for 6 minutes or until tender.
  4. Add chicken, ½ cup cheddar cheese, picante sauce, cream cheese and cumin.
  5. Cook for 3 minutes or until cheese melts.
  6. Spoon about 1/3 cup chicken mixture down center of each tortilla, and roll up.
  7. Place enchiladas in a 13x9x2 inch baking dish; drizzle with taco sauce, and sprinkle with ½ cup cheddar cheese.
  8. Cover and bake at 350°F for 15 minutes or until cheese melts.
  9. Serve enchiladas immediately.
