You say you want chicken?

Well, I will give you chicken, alright! My famous Chicken Enchiladas, that is! I cannot believe that I have never shared this yummy recipe. I honor of May 5, I will be making margaritas, cranberry salsa and enchiladas. Adapted from an older Cooking Light recipe, this is low-fat but gives you the gooey decadence you crave and the fiber and veggies you need.

Lowfat Chicken Enchiladas
4 oz lowfat creme cheese
1 package of frozen chopped spinach, de-thawed
Pulled chicken from rotisseri chicken
1 can black beans
1 small can green chilis
1/2 cup cooked onion
3/4 cup monterey jack cheese
Salt & Pepper to taste
3 tablespoons cumin
8 Corn Tortillas
1 can red enchilada sauce

Soak tortillas in sauce. Mix chicken, beans, chilis, spinach, onion and creme cheese with spices in sauce pan. Spoon 1/2 cup filling in center of tortilla, add a sprinkle of cheese; roll tightly, and place in an 11 x 7-inch baking dish. Repeat procedure with remaining tortillas and filling.Pour sauce over enchiladas. Cover and bake at 375° for 20 minutes. Uncover; sprinkle with Monterey Jack. Bake an additional 5 minutes or until cheeses melt. Top with sour cream.
