recipe: sarah's enchiladas

If you've made a 2011 resolution to eat healthier.... move along, nothing to see here.
Guy and I were craving mexican yesterday and it was an easy decision to make my dear friend Sarah's chicken enchiladas. They're simple, delicious, and cheesy (the most important part)!

Start by dicing one medium onion

...and boiling 1 1/2 pounds of chicken. Shred the chicken after boiling.

Preheat the oven to 350.
In the meantime.... saute the onion in butter and add the chicken.
Right after add 1/2 cup Picante salsa, 1 tsp cumin, and 4 oz of cream cheese.

Keep on heat until warm. After, remove from heat and add 1 cup shredded cheese.
Warm tortillas in the microwave. Immediately add the chicken mixture and roll the enchiladas.
Add to a greased pan.

Top with remaining salsa and cheese.

Cook for 15 minutes, let cool, and enjoy!

Let me know if you try these! I promise you won't be disappointed!
Hope everyone has a great start to their new year!

First of all... your hand looks amazing rolling an enchilada with your beautiful ring on :) :) :)

I will try these. I can't eat onions- weird intestinal disease thing I have. But, I can use fake onion flake for flavor so I will try that. I've gotten pretty good at modifying recipes that call for onion... which I will totally do here cuz these sound amazing!!!
