Fiesta Enchiladas

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Prepare the chicken breasts by removing bone and skin. Shred the meat into long pieces.
  2. Mash the cream cheese with a spoon until smooth. Mix in chicken, green onions, salt, pepper, and one half of the diced chiles. Mix in 1 cup of the jack cheese. This is the filling for the enchiladas and may be prepared ahead.
  3. If flour tortillas are used, simply heat until limp in a frying pan. If you use corn tortillas, heat a little oil in a frying pan and fry each tortilla until limp, adding oil as needed.
  4. Fill each tortilla with about 2 tablespoons of the filling. Roll the tortilla and place seam-side down in a lightly greased baking pan. Mix the sour cream with tomato sauce, chili powder, and remaining diced chiles. Spoon over tortillas. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  5. Bake uncovered for 20 minutes at 325 degrees F. They should be just hot, with the cheese melted.
  6. Garnish as desired. Cilantro leaves and pale green avocado slices make a lovely topping.
