Chicken Enchiladas

Submitted by: CELESTIE4

Introduction

I got this recipe from my sister and it has become a favourite dish for our family. It can be made with chicken or turkey - a GREAT recipe for leftovers.
I had some issues entering the ingredients, so I had to input 1 cup low fat cheddar cheese and 3 oz. low fat mozzarella cheese instead of 2 cups low fat marble cheese.
You can reduce the fat of this recipe by using low fat cream of chicken soup or no fat sour cream.
Enjoy!

Ingredients

    1 can cream of chicken soup
    1 can chicken broth
    8 oz. sour cream, reduced fat.
    2 cups cooked chicken, shredded
    1 pkg. frozen spinach, thawed and drained well
    2 cups grated low fat marble cheese
    1 tsp cumin
    1/2 tsp garlic powder
    1/2 tsp onion powder
    8 large whole wheat tortillas

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Combine soup, 3/4 can chicken broth, and sour cream. Set aside 1 cup of this mixture.
To the other mixture add the chicken, spinach, 1 cup of cheese, and spices.
Divide filling between 8 tortillas. Place filling in the tortilla shell and roll it up. Place side by side in a 9 x 13 inch pan.
Add the remaining 1/4 can of chicken broth to the reserved soup mixture and pour over the enchiladas. Cover with the remaining cheese. Cook for approximately 30 minutes or until bubbly. Broil at the end for a nicely browned top. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

Each tortilla is one serving. Makes 8 servings.

    I used lofat plain yogurt, lofat mozerrella, and squash and zuchini sliced long ways instead of tortillas. I also added a can of green chilis to the chicken mixture. I layered the squash and zuchini like lasagna, topped it with chicken mixture, topped with some sauce mixture, and repeated. Yummy! - 5/27/09

    Tried it tonight. After cooking let stand for 5-10 minutes to allow sauce to thicken. Instead of rolling the enchiladas I quartered the tortillas & layered them alternating with the chicken mixture. Then I put the spinach on top covered with tortillas added remaining sauce and cheese. UMMMM - 5/20/09

  • I made this tonight and it was yummy! I made some adaptations (nonfat plain yogurt and a lower calorie tortilla)--enough for me to create my own recipe and calculate the calories. I was able to make six enchiladas for only 250 calories each! Woohoo! - 5/30/10
