Chicken - Avocado Enchiladas

Submitted by: JOANN562

Introduction

This is a family favorite! This is a family favorite!
Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    1 1/2 cups of chopped, cooked chicken breast (great for leftovers from a roasted chicken or boil some breasts)
    1 1/4 cup of your favorite salsa
    1 tsp ground cumin or TANDOORI seasoning
    3 oz lowfat cream cheese
    2 oz lowfat cheese (cheddar or jack), shredded
    4 Tbsp sliced black olives
    1 Hass Avocado, sliced into 12 pieces
    12 white corn tortillias

Directions

This makes 6 servings (2 enchiladas each)

Combine chicken , 1/2 cup of salsa, and cumin or tandoori seasoning in saucepan. Simmer & stir for 5 min. Add cream cheese. Stir until melted. Place one avocado slice down the center of each tortillia, top with a heaping of chicken mixture. Roll up & place seam side down on a greased 8x11 baking dish ~ spray of your choice~ I use olive oil in a pump spray. After all tortillas are filled, top with remaining salsa. Sprinkle with shredded cheese & sliced olives.
Cover tightly with foil & bake 350 degrees for 25-30 min, or until hot.

Additional toppings (not included in nutritionals)
Light or FF sourcream
Diced tomatoes
Additional grated cheese

(FYI ~ Blackbeans make a great side to this dish)

ENJOY!

  • This was really yummy. I cooked it as directed except I added a chopped jalapeno pepper to the chicken mix along with the salsa, and I used a bit more of the shredded 2% cheese. Also used yellow corn tortillas instead of white (30 cal. less per serving). This will go on our list to repeat. Thanks! - 6/1/13

  • So yummy! I only got 10 enchiladas out of this recipe. I left out the olives because I don't like them. I loved these and just paired it with a big salad! - 5/25/12

  • This was absolutely fantastic! I only made 11 enchiladas with the chicken mixture, but it was SO good. My fiance went back for seconds and thirds. This will go into the regular rotation for sure. Thank you for sharing! - 8/22/11

  • This turned out fantastic! I used a store-bought rotisserie chicken which made prep time even easier. I also replaced the cream cheese with light sour cream. I'm not sure what that did to the calorie count, but I just couldn't have enchiladas without sour cream. Overall, great recipe! - 9/23/08

  • This is a new family favorite of ours too! Even our 3yo ate it. I'm going to cut back on the cumin a bit though next time.....or maybe I didn't really eyeball it correctly when I shook it all in. SO TASTY - 6/18/08
