  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp pepper

  • 10 flour tortillas 6 inches, room temperature
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup 10 3/4 oz
  • 1 c. sour cream
  • 1 can chopped green chilies 4 oz
  • 1 c. shredded cheddar cheese


  • In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, water, onion powder, cumin, salt and pepper until smooth. Stir in chicken.

To prepare these in advance we make the enchiladas as stated in the recipe and stop before baking. Cover the pan with a lid, foil or saran wrap and place in the refrigerator up to 24 hours in advance.
When ready to prepare remove from refrigerator and let sit out on counter while oven preheats. Then bake according to directions. Plan about 10 minutes of extra bake time as the enchiladas are cold.
To freeze this recipe prepare up to the baking step in recipe. Cover tightly with saran wrap then tinfoil or a lid. Place in the freezer for up to 3 months. When ready to prepare we recommend taking out the night before and letting the enchiladas thaw in the refrigerator overnight. Bake according to directions.
