Cooking Recipe

Ingredients:
2 & 1/2 cups chopped cooked chicken breast
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded reduced-fat 4-cheese Mexican blend cheese
1 & 2/3 cups plain low-fat yogurt
1/3 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 tsp minced garlic
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 (10 3/4-ounce) can condensed reduced-fat, reduced-sodium cream of chicken soup (such as Healthy Request), undiluted
1 (4.5-ounce) can chopped green chiles, drained
8 (8-inch) flour tortillas
1 tbsp canola oil
Cooking spray
1/2 cup (2 ounces) finely shredded reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup chopped green onions

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

2. Combine first 9 ingredients in a large bowl. Remove 1 cup chicken mixture; set mixture aside.

3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Working with 1 tortilla at a time, brush oil over both sides of tortilla. Add tortilla to pan; cook 5 seconds on each side or until toasted and soft. Remove from pan; arrange 1/2 cup chicken mixture down center of tortilla. Roll jelly-roll style; place filled tortilla, seam side down, in a 13 x 9--inch baking dish coated with cooking spray.

4. Repeat procedure with remaining 7 tortillas, remaining oil, and remaining chicken mixture. Spread reserved 1 cup chicken mixture evenly over enchiladas. Cover and bake at 350°F for 20 minutes. Uncover; sprinkle evenly with cheddar cheese and green onions; bake an additional 5 minutes or until cheese melts.

Serve with a salad of fresh mango, jicama, and shredded lettuce topped with a lime vinaigrette.
