These are fantastic..perfect for a cold night when you are in the mood for tex mex comfort and there's no decent take out near you. I got this from Wendy on the Cooking Light board but I believe originally it appeared on Epicurious. It's been lightened...no reason doing the full fat when lightened tastes so good.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Lightly spray a 13x9x2-inch glass baking dish with butter flavored cooking spray. Mix 1 3/4 cups sour cream, chilies, green onions, 1/2 cup cilantro and spices in large bowl. Mix in chicken and 1/2 cup cheddar cheese. Season filling to taste with additional salt and pepper.
  2. Spoon generous 1/2 cup filling down center of each tortilla. Top filling with cream cheese strip. Roll up each tortilla, enclosing filling. Arrange enchiladas seam side down in prepared dish. (Can be made 3 hours ahead. Cover and chill.).
  3. Preheat oven to 350°F Pour picante sauce over enchiladas. Cover and bake until sauce bubbles and enchiladas are heated through, about 35 minutes. Uncover, sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup cheddar cheese and bake until cheese melts, about 5 minutes.
  4. Top with remaining sour cream. Garnish with cilantro, if desired.
