Chicken Enchiladas

Recipe from myrecipes.com

 

I usually make my mom’s classic cream of chicken enchiladas with sour cream so I felt like I was going against what I had been raised on but I gotta say I really like these.  I did think the flavor wasn’t as strong as I’d like so I did add some cumin to the filling and that helped.  Anyway, I would make these again..maybe more than the cream of chicken kind…shhh don’t tell my mom.

  • 1 cup diced sweet onion
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 2 cups chopped fresh baby spinach
  • 2 (4.5-oz.) cans chopped green chiles, drained
  • 3 cups shredded cooked chicken
  • 1 (8-oz.) package 1/3-less-fat cream cheese, cubed and softened $
  • 2 cups (8 oz.) shredded pepper Jack cheese
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
