    1 Cup Mexican Blend Cheese
    1/3 cup Milk, lowfat
    1 egg
    1 egg white
    1 tsp ground Cumin
    1/8 tsp ground cayenne pepper
    1 (14 oz) can Cream Style Corn
    1 (8.5 oz) box Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix
    1 (4 oz) can chopped Green Chiles
    1 (10 oz) can Red Enchilada Sauce
    2 Cups Chicken Breast, cooked and shredded
    1/2 cup Lite Sour Cream


Preheat oven to 400

Combine 1/4 cup cheese and next 8 ingredients (through chiles) in a large bowl, stirring just until moist. Pour mixture into a 13 X 9 baking dish coated with cooking spray.

Bake at 400 for 15 minutes or until set. Pierce entire surface liberally with a fork: pour enchilada sauce over top. Top with chicken; sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake at 400 for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Remove from oven; let stand 5 minutes. Cut into 8 pieces; top each serving with 1 Tablespoon of sour cream.

    I've made this many times (i found it on cooking light a few years ago) and it is one of my favorite recipes. My family loves it as well.

    I use green enchilada sauce (an accident when I bought the can the first time I made it!) and I double the red pepper. - 9/13/12

  • I made this for dindin tonight and it was yummy! I added Coriander to the batter and then chopped Cilantro on top right before the cheese. Used egg beaters instead of the other eggs called for..would make again! - 8/17/13
