Cream Cheese Chicken Enchiladas

After sorting through my bookmarks last week, I rediscovered these Cream Cheese Chicken Enchiladas from Karly at Buns In My Oven. I know my version looks like it has a ton of ingredients, but it’s one of those “stir a whole bunch of ingredients together at once…” kind of deals. Xavier, Megan and I love them! PS: Karly, corn was a great addition. I’m bringing this to the Friday Potluck.


Cream Cheese Chicken Enchiladas
Serves: 4
  • 1-1/2lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 2 cups water
  • ¼ tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp garlic salt
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup light sour cream
  • 2 10 oz. cans enchilada sauce (mild)
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1 cup shredded monterey jack cheese, divided
  • 1 15 oz. can corn
  • 4 oz. can diced green chiles
  • 8 8-inch flour tortillas
  1. Add chicken, water, cumin, garlic salt, onion powder, and chili powder in a medium/large skillet. Bring to a boil and boil 10 minutes. Put lid on, cracked slightly, and continue to simmer on low 20-30 minutes, until chicken is fully cooked.
  2. Drain any excess liquid. With two forks pulling in opposite directions, shred the chicken and set aside.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and spray a 13x9 in. cooking dish.
  4. In a medium bowl, cream together cream cheese, sour cream, ½ can enchilada sauce, and half of each cheese with mixer on low speed. With a spoon or fork, gently fold in chicken, corn, and green chiles.
  5. Pour ½ can of enchilada sauce in the bottom of the baking dish. Spoon the chicken filling into each tortilla, roll, and place in dish, seem down. Top with remaining cheese and enchilada sauce and bake for 20 minutes, until cheese bubbles.
