My husband preferred this recipe more than I did, but it was good. I followed the directions exactly using canned enchilada sauce. I didn't find the filling too gooey. The left overs were placed in single serving plastic containers for lunches. We did find you have to let the enchiladas thaw before reheating or the edges dry out. I also place a couple of uncooked enchiladas without sauce in a zip top bag and froze. I took them out and thawed overnight when I wanted to make a quick single serving dinner. I pour sauce over at that time and baked as directed.
- 1 (16 ounce) container light sour cream
- 1 (8 ounce) package light cream cheese, softened
- 1 (7 ounce) can diced green chilies
- 4 large green onions, chopped
- 1⁄2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons ground cumin
- 2 cups diced cooked chicken
- 2 cups packed grated sharp cheddar cheese (about 8 ounces)
- 8 8-inch flour tortillas
- enchilada sauce (your recipe or mine Enchilada Sauce Enchilada Sauce or prepared canned sauce)
- additional chopped fresh cilantro (optional)
