green chili chicken enchiladas

Thanks to my sister Tori for this yummy (and surprisingly easy) recipe!! I feel like a true New Mexican now. And you'd better believe I used only Hatch green chilis and sauce!! 

RECIPE: Green Chili Chicken Enchiladas

1 lb chicken, grilled 
     Garlic powder
     Onion powder
8 oz cream cheese
1 can diced green chilis
10-12 corn tortillas 
1 can green enchilada sauce
1-2 c "fiesta blend" cheese (shredded)

Preheat oven to 375F. Season and grill chicken (on grill, George Foreman, etc). Shred chicken. 

Melt cream cheese with green chilis on the stovetop. Mix with shredded chicken.

Pour a teeny bit of enchilada sauce in the bottom of your pan. Roll the enchiladas, putting the chicken mix in each corn tortilla and rolling. Place rolled enchiladas in the pan. Dump remaining enchilada sauce on top, then sprinkle with shredded cheese. 

Bake, uncovered, at 350F for 20 min or until cheese is bubbled and browned. Serve warm, with a side of beans! Yum!

Note: Tori uses a 9x13 pan. I used a smaller one, not super sure of the dimensions. But look how well the tortillas fit in my pan?! Is it sad that this fact made me super happy? :)
