Cooking MethodCasserole, Microwave


  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cooked and diced
  • 3/4 cup mild salsa
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 large yellow onion, diced
  • 2 cups reduced fat Mexican blend shredded cheese (cheddar/jack)
  • 1 cup no-fat sour cream
  • 4 ounces low fat cream cheese, softened
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried cilantro
  • 8 whole wheat tortillas
  • 1 cup reduced fat Cheddar cheese, cubed
  • 1/2 cup skim milk


  1. In large bowl, thoroughly mix chicken, salsa, bell pepper, onion, shredded cheese, cream cheese, sour cream, garlic powder, paprika, salt, pepper and cilantro.
  2. Fill 8 large tortillas with this mixture, roll them up and place in a sprayed/greased casserole dish.
  3. Sauce: combine Cheddar cheese and milk. Microwave on high, stopping to stir often, until cheese is melted and sauce is smooth; it has a tendency to boil over.
  4. Pour cheese sauce over enchiladas covering completely. Spread a little more salsa over cheese sauce.
  5. Cover with foil and bake at 325 degrees F for 45-60 minutes. Remove from oven and remove foil and allow to stand for 10 minutes before serving.
