You can never go wrong with enchiladas. Especially when they’re made with juicy chicken breast and real, natural Mexican blend cheese that’s always shredded fresh from the block. Bring this recipe to life using only the freshest ingredients, such as grilled corn, baby spinach, chopped green chilies and corn tortillas. These gooey, cheesy chicken enchiladas make for a great weekday dinner or a next day lunchtime leftover.

Ingredients
  • 1 Tbsp. cooking oil
  • 1/2 medium onion, diced
  • 1/2 tsp. cumin
  • 1 large chicken breast, cooked and shredded
  • 4 oz. canned chopped green chilies
  • 2 cobs of corn, grilled and cut from cob
  • 19 oz. green enchilada sauce, divided
  • 2 oz. softened cream cheese
  • 4 cups loosely packed fresh spinach
  • 2 cups (8 oz.) Sargento® Fine Cut Shredded 4 Cheese Mexican, divided
  • 6-8 corn tortillas
Directions
  1. In a large non-stick pan, heat oil over medium heat and sauté diced onion with cumin, stirring occasionally. Cook for 5 minutes until onions are soft and translucent. Add shredded chicken, green chilies, corn and 1/2 cup enchilada sauce. Stir and heat until warm. Remove from heat, stir in cream cheese, spinach and 1-1/2 cups cheese.
  2. Prepare 7 x 11-inch pan with nonstick spray and spread 3/4 cup enchilada sauce in bottom. Divide filling among tortillas, roll then place on top of sauce in pan. Top with remaining enchilada sauce and cheese. Bake for 12 minutes until cheese is melted.
