Cream Cheese Chicken Enchiladas are a delicious and creamy twist on traditional enchiladas. Here’s a simple recipe for you:

Ingredients: For the Filling: 2 cups cooked and shredded chicken (rotisserie chicken works well) 1 cup black beans, drained and rinsed 1 cup corn kernels (fresh, frozen, or canned) 1 cup diced bell peppers (any color) 1 cup diced onions 1 teaspoon ground cumin 1 teaspoon chili powder Salt and pepper to taste 8 oz cream cheese, softened 1 cup shredded cheddar or Mexican blend cheese For the Sauce: 2 tablespoons butter 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour 2 cups chicken broth 1 cup sour cream 1 can (4 oz) diced green chilies Salt and pepper to taste For Assembling: 8-10 flour tortillas 1 cup shredded cheddar or Mexican blend cheese (for topping) Instructions: Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Prepare Filling: In a large bowl, combine shredded chicken, black beans, corn, diced bell peppers, diced onions, ground cumin, chili powder, salt, pepper, softened cream cheese, and 1 cup shredded cheese. Mix well until all ingredients are evenly combined. Make Sauce: In a saucepan over medium heat, melt butter.

Stir in flour and cook for 1-2 minutes until it forms a paste. Gradually whisk in chicken broth, ensuring there are no lumps. Bring the mixture to a simmer, stirring constantly until it thickens. Remove from heat and stir in sour cream, diced green chilies, salt, and pepper. Assemble Enchiladas: Spoon a small amount of the sauce onto the bottom of a baking dish. Place a tortilla on a flat surface and spoon a generous portion of the chicken mixture onto the center. Roll up the tortilla and place it seam-side down in the baking dish. Repeat with the remaining tortillas. Pour Sauce Over Enchiladas: Pour the sauce over the rolled tortillas, ensuring they are well-covered. Sprinkle the remaining 1 cup of shredded cheese over the top. Bake: Bake in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly, and the enchiladas are heated through. Serve: Remove from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes.

Serve the cream cheese chicken enchiladas with your favorite toppings, such as chopped cilantro, diced tomatoes, or sliced avocado. Enjoy your creamy and flavorful Cream Cheese Chicken Enchiladas!
