Ingredients

    Chicken breast 16 oz
    Cream cheese, fat free 4 oz
    Chicken stock .5 cup
    Green chiles, chopped, diced or crushed 4 oz
    Enchilada sauce, mild green 10 oz
    2% Monterrey Jack Cheese
    12 corn tortillas

    Spices:

    Chile powder 2 tbsp
    Salt 1.5 tsp
    Pepper 1 tsp
    Garlic Powder 1 tsp
    Ground Cumin 1 tsp
    Cayenne Pepper 1 tsp





Directions

Place chicken in a large pot and add enough water to completely cover the chicken. On high heat, bring to a boil. Then, reduce heat to medium-high and cook chicken until no longer pink in center. About 10 or 15 minutes depending on the size.

Drain water. Removed chicken and place on a cutting board or plate. Pull apart with two forks. Return meat to pot. Add spices, chicken stock, and green chiles. Stir to blend well.

Cook on medium for 10-15 minutes to reduce. When liquid is pretty much absorbed, add cream cheese and mix together until melted. Remove from heat and set aside. Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Lightly grease a 9x13 casserole dish. Set aside.

Heat a tortilla in a pan over medium-high heat - about 10 seconds on each side.

Fill tortilla with about 1/3 cup of filling and a sprinkle of cheese. Roll and place seam-side down in casserole dish.

Repeat last 2 steps. Makes 12

Pour enchilada sauce on top, evenly distributed.

Bake in oven for 20 minutes. Remove. Set oven on broil. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top. Broil quickly until cheese is melted and golden brown. It only takes a minute so don't walk away.

Remove & let them sit for like 5-10 minutes to relax.

Garnish with cilantro.

Enjoy!!!
