Boil chicken breast in water with onion, garlic and cilantro. Reduce and simmer for 10 minutes.

Remove chicken from broth (KEEP BROTH), shred meat. Strain broth.

Add 1 1/3 cup broth to the enchilda sauce. Set aside.

For filling, combine chicken, 2 cups of cheese, green onions (scallions), chopped cilantro, salt, pepper and tabasco. Add 1 cup of the enchilada sauce/broth mixture.

To assemble, wam corn tortillas either on the stove or in the microwave between 2 wet paper towels (30 seconds or less). Dip each tortilla into enchilda sauce/broth mixture. Lay flat. Place 2-3 T filling on each tortilla. Roll tortilla and place face down in a 9x 13 inch sprayed cooking dish. Continue with remaining tortillas.

Spoon remaining sauce over tortillas and sprinkle with remaining cheese.

Bake at 350 for 25-35 minute until sauce bubbles and the cheese is melted.

I split this into 2, and freeze half in a 9 x 9 foil pan.
