How to make Cream Cheese Chicken Enchiladas

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees. Using a Pam, grease a 9 x 13-inch baking dish.

Step 2: To a large skillet, add the Rotel and cream cheese. Heat over medium heat, stirring until well mixed and the cheese has melted. Now, add the chicken and stir.

Step 3: Down the centre of each tortilla, spoon 2 to 3 tbsp of the chicken mixture. Roll the tortillas and lay them in the prepared baking dish seam-side-down.

Step 4: Over the tortillas, sprinkle the Monterey Jack cheese and drizzle a generous amount of whipping cream.

Step 5: Tent the enchiladas with foil. Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 30 minutes. Remove the foil and continue to bake for additional 15 minutes or until the top is golden brown.

Step 6: Remove from the oven when done and serve immediately. Enjoy!
