Chile-Chicken Enchiladas

I made these on Tuesday - yummy! Ray didn't get excited as he doesn't like enchiladas.

Chile-Chicken Enchiladas
Modified from Betty Crocker

1 can (19 oz) enchilada sauce
2 cups diced cooked chicken
1 1/2 cups Mexican cheese [they used Monterey Jack...I also didn't measure this...I used more (I like cheese) as I had 2 cups of Mexican cheese and used it all plus some cheddar and I only did 4 enchiladas - 1/2 this recipe]
1 cup sour cream
1 can (4.5 oz) chopped green chiles
8 (8 inch) tortillas
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese [does anyone actually measure cheese....]
1 cup onion, diced

Heat oven to 350°F. Spray bottom of 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray. Spread 1/2 cup enchilada sauce in bottom of baking dish. In medium bowl, stir together chicken, Monterey Jack cheese, sour cream and chiles.

Spoon about 1/3 cup chicken mixture down center of each tortilla. Roll up tortillas; arrange, seam sides down, in baking dish. Top enchiladas with remaining enchilada sauce. Sprinkle with Cheddar cheese. Spray sheet of foil with cooking spray; cover baking dish with foil, sprayed side down.

Bake 35 minutes. Remove foil; bake 5 to 10 minutes longer or until hot and cheese is melted. Top with avocado or green onions. If desired, serve with lettuce, chopped tomato and additional sour cream.

Serves 8.
