Ingredients
  

  • 2 Cups Slow Cooker Shredded Chicken, (Recipe link in notes section)
  • 1 ½ Cups Low Fat Shredded Monterey Jack Cheese
  • 10 White Corn Tortillas, (I prefer Mission Ultra-Thin Corn Tortillas)
  • Fresh Pico de Gallo, for Garnish
  • Diced Avocado, for Garnish
  • Suiza Sauce Ingredients:
  • 2 Cups Roasted Tomatillo Salsa, (Recipe link in notes section) or Hatch Green Chili Enchilada Sauce
  • ¼ Cup Low Fat Sour Cream

Instructions
 

  • Make Slow Cooker Shredded Chicken. (Recipe link in notes section)

Suiza Sauce Directions:

  • Combine 2 cups of the Roasted Tomatillo Salsa and ¼ cup low fat sour cream. Mix until well blended.

Enchilada Stuffing Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 375° and spray 9x13 inch casserole dish with cooking spray.
  • Heat a skillet over medium heat and spray with cooking spray.
  • Add chicken mixture to skillet. Season with a dash of chili powder and cumin. Add salt & pepper to taste.
  • Add 1 cup Suiza sauce, 1 cup leftover liquid from crock pot, mix well, and reduce heat to simmer. Cover and cook for 20 minutes.
  • Spray both sides of tortillas with nonfat cooking spray and place in a zip-lock bag. Microwave 40 seconds. This will help the tortillas be flexible for stuffing.

To assemble the enchiladas:

  • Measure out ½ cup shredded cheese.
  • In one hand, hold a tortilla and with the other hand add in the chicken mixture, top with a sprinkle of cheese, roll up tight, then add to the casserole dish. Continue until all enchiladas are rolled.
  • Top the enchiladas with the remaining Suiza sauce, sprinkle with the remaining 1 cup cheese and bake for 10 minutes.
