Gentlemen Prefer Blonde Enchiladas

Catagory: Main Dish
Difficulty: Easy
Not Healthy

This was part of a Girls Nite Out celebration about 30 years ago when we wore long hair, bellbottom jeans and t-shirts. Wait! Sounds like today! Well, just as jeans and t-shirts are timeless, so is this dish. Everybody loves it. Serves five or six, but remember to double or triple the recipe for a crowd. Especially if you expect people of the male persuasion. They WILL come back for seconds. The key is to bake them until they are browned a bit around the edges and bubbly. DO over-bake!

Gentlemen Prefer Blonde Enchiladas:

1/2 cube butter (1/4 C)
1 onion (small), chopped
1 pkg. chicken breasts (4 half-breasts)
1 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese
1 can mild green chilis, diced (you can use 4 oz. green salsa in a pinch)
about 6 large flour tortillas
1 pint whipping cream
2 C Monterey Jack cheese, shredded

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cook chicken in butter, remove and chop or rip into bite-size pieces. Salt to taste. Put onion back into pan, saute in remaining butter till limp. Add cream cheese and chilis and saute with onion until melted and combined. Add chicken and combine thoroughly. Wrap chicken mixture in tortillas and place in greased 9X13" pan. Sprinkle cheese evenly over the top, then pour whipping cream all over the top. Bake until slightly browned and very bubbly.
