Creamy Chicken and Chile Enchildas!

Here's the finished product and here's how I got there!
(complete recipe below)

 First, cut up 1LB of thawed chicken breast and cook on medium heat until there is no more pink in the center...easy!
 Then add 1 8oz. package of cream cheese and 1 4.5oz can of green chiles....mix until all melted...
 Next, spoon chicken filing in tortillas with seam side down...the recipe says you should have 12 filled tortillas...
 Then pour over 2 cans of green enchilada sauce and cover with 1 cup of shredded cheese.
* I only used 1 can and thought it was plenty. You can also add green sauce with cream of chicken soup to pour over if you want additional sauce!
Bake, 400 degrees for 15 - 20 minutes...and ENJOY!!!!

    Have a good week

  2. I've been making some like these off of Pinterest and I'm so happy with it!!

  3. I am so trying this. Thank you for sharing this at the Make it Pretty Monday party at The Dedicated Housse. Hope to see you again next week. Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse

  4. I've made this recipe once before and it was soooo good, you're right! Sometimes when I find chicken breast on sale, I'll go ahead and boil it, then shred it and store it in ziploc freezer bags just for recipes like this. (I saw this recipe in perhaps 2 link parties, but most recently from The Dedicated House. Congrats on the feature!)
