28 oz of green chile enchilada sauce
1 can(s)
7 oz of chopped green chiles
1/2 tsp

cooked (boiled) chopped chicken breast, i guess you'd say it was a half of breast each? (or thighs)
20
corn tortillas cut up
1 pkg
shredded mexican blend cheese (2 cups)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350
Cut up cream cheese to 1 inch cubes, (better if room temp) add to mixing bowl, add green chili sauce, green chilies, cumin and salt to taste. Mix until the cream cheese has blended in nicely.

Add chopped chicken and mix.
3
Spay 13 x 9 baking dish with Pam (or other non stick spray) Cut up tortillas into strips then cut in half again. Line baking dish with some of the tortillas evenly.
4
Then add the rest of the tortillas to the creamy chicken mixture, mix until all the tortillas are coated.

Pour into the the baking dish.
6
Spread evenly and top with the cheese.
