  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray 13x9-inch (3-quart) baking dish with cooking spray. Spread 1/4 cup of the enchilada sauce in bottom of baking dish.
  2. In medium bowl, mix chicken, 1 cup of the Cheddar cheese, the cream cheese and seasoning mix with spoon, breaking apart cream cheese cubes. Spoon slightly less than 1/2 cup filling onto each tortilla. Roll up each tortilla tightly; place seam side down in baking dish. Drizzle with remaining enchilada sauce. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese.
  3. Cover with foil; bake 15 minutes. Uncover and bake 15 minutes longer or until bubbly and lightly browned.

Footnotes

  • * You can substitute 2 tablespoons Old El Paso® taco seasoning mix for 1-ounce package Old El Paso® fajita seasoning mix.
  • Pop the opened cream cheese in the freezer for about 10 minutes to make it colder so it's easier to cut into small cubes.
  • If using taco seasoning mix, use just 2 tablespoons, and save the rest for another use.
