Number of Servings: 10

Ingredients

    2- 10 oz cans Enchilada sauce, Las Palmas (medium or mild)
    Flour Tortillas, 10 fajita size
    Scallions, about 6 medium
    2 Chicken Breasts, boneless, skinless
    Peanut butter, 1 tbsp *optional
    Shredded Monterey Jack Cheese, 8 oz (pepper jack can also be used)

Directions

Boil chicken breast

While chicken is cooking, put enchilada sauce in a frying pan, add peanut butter and heat until melted being careful not to boil sauce. Leave to cool.

Slice scallions (onion and greens) and mix with 3/4 of the cheese in a large bowl.

When the chicken is done, pull it apart using 2 forks and add to cheese.

Spray a 13x9x2 pan with nonstick spray for easy cleanup.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

This is the messy part!

Dip one tortilla in sauce, fill with 1/10 of filling and roll. Place in pan. Do this with the remaining tortillas. Pour left over sauce in pan and sprinkle the remaining cheese on top.

Bake for about 20-30 minutes or until heated through and cheese is melted.
