Light Chicken Enchiladas

Mmmmm… Is there any food better than Mexican? I submit that there is not. Unfortunately, most Mexican dishes come loaded with calories. That’s why I’ve tweaked this enchilada recipe to make it both delicious and waistline-friendly. 

I seriously make this recipe all the time. It takes about 45 minutes from top to bottom, and your guests will never know its so low-fat. I promise you, this will be a recipe you make again and again.

Ingredients:

  • 10 oz can enchilada sauce 
  • 4 oz can diced green chiles
  • 2 cups shredded chicken
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp chile powder
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt
  • 5 oz reduced-fat cream cheese
  • 1 cup reduced-fat shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 cup reduced-fat shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 8 whole wheat tortillas 
  • 4 scallions diced 

Directions:

  • Preheat your oven to 350 and spray a 13×9 pan
  • Combine your cream cheese, Greek yogurt, 1/2 the enchilada sauce, and 1/2 of each kind of cheese in a bowl
  • In another bowl, combine the chicken, corn, spices, chiles, and half the scallions
  • Add the chicken mixture to the cheese and sour cream mixture. Mix well. 
  • spread 1/2 the remaining enchilada sauce in the bottom of the pan
  • Fill each tortilla wrap with chicken mixture. Roll the tortilla and lay in your pan with the seam down. 
  • Top enchiladas with remaining sauce and cheese. 
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes or until bubbly. Top with remaining scallions and serve.
