Cream Cheese Chicken Enchiladas

In the words of my 12 year-old, “These might just be the best enchiladas you’ve ever made, and you’ve made a lot of enchiladas.”  That pretty much sums up the goodness of these cheesy, creamy, slightly spicy enchiladas.  They were amazing!  Between mouthfuls, everyone kept telling me how good they were.  And I confess, I was warming up some leftovers within hours of finishing dinner.

We love green salsa around here, but I’m sure they’d be quite tasty with regular salsa if you don’t have salsa verde on hand.  Regardless of your salsa preference, these are sure to become a favorite!

  2. In a medium bowl, stir together cream cheese, sour cream, salsa verde, 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, 1/2 cup pepper-jack cheese, cumin, chili powder, salt, pepper and green onions.
  3. Remove 2 cups of the cream cheese mixture to another bowl; set aside.
  4. To the remaining mixture, add the shredded chicken and corn; mix well.
  5. Spray a 9x13 inch pan with non-stick cooking spray. Spread a thin layer of the reserved sauce over the bottom of the pan.
