I couldn’t find this recipe on their website for some reason. It must be an old one. This was REALLY REALLY GOOD! Made my CW’s jealous the next two days for lunch, too. We didn’t shred the chicken, for some reason, but we definitely will next time. I will be making this again!!

1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1 cup onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 4.5oz. can chopped green chiles, undrained
12 ounces cooked chicken breast halves
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
2 10oz cans green chile enchilada sauce
cooking spray
14 6″ corn tortillas, quartered
1 1/2 cups reduced fat cheese, Mexican blend
