Fiesta Chicken Enchiladas

I received my FREE Kraft Food and Family quarterly magazine today. It has some really great ideas for summer recipes. The one shown below uses leftover grilled chicken. Whenever I grill chicken I throw a few extras on so I can make recipes like this. It saves a ton of time.

1 small onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
4 cooked small chicken breasts, shredded
1 cup salsa, divided
4 oz cream cheese, cubed
1 tbsp chopped cilantro
1 tsp ground cumin
1 cup cheddar and monterey jack cheese, divded
8 flour torillas

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Heat large skillet sprayed with cooking spray on medium heat. Add onions and garlic; cook and stir 2 min. Add chicken, 1/4 cup salsa, the cream cheese, cilantro and cumin; mix well. Cook until heated through, stirring occasionally. Add 1/2 cup of the shredded cheese; mix well.

Spoon about 1/3 cup of the chicken mixture onto each tortilla; roll up. Place, seam-side down, in 13 x 9 inch baking dish sprayed with cooking spray; top with remaining 3/4 cup salsa and remaining shredded cheese.

Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until heated through.

Makes 4 servings, 2 enchiladas each.
