Easy Chicken Enchilada

I have been on the lookout for a good enchilada recipe because I love
enchilada's and not very many recipes compare to the restaurant
versions (at least not without lard, msg, and all that other good
stuff). Finally, I found a chicken enchilada recipe that I absolutely
love! And it is so easy too :) I found it in the taste of home
magazine. I'm still on the lookout for an amazing cheese enchilada
recipe if anyone has one.

Easy Chicken Enchilada

2 cups cubed cooked chicken
1 pkg. cream cheese (softened)
8 flour tortillas
1 cup plain yogurt or sour cream
1 cup salsa
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
Sliced olives, shredded lettuce, and chopped tomatoes (optional toppers)

In a bowl, combine chicken and cream cheese. Spoon about 1/4 cup
mixture down the center of each tortilla; roll up tightly. Place seam
side down in a baking dish.

Combine salsa and yogurt/ sour cream; spread over tortillas. Bake,
uncovered at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese and
olives. Bake 10-15 minutes more or until cheese is melted. Serve with
lettuce and tomato if desired.

I absolutely love the flavor and simplicity of this recipe. I also
made homemade tortillas. That was such a fun bread experience! And I
found a recipe without lard and used ww flour. More to come on that
adventure in another post.

  1. Did you make tortillas using a tortilla press? We have a tortilla press but have yet to use it.
