1 can (10.5 ounces) Sunny Select Cream of Chicken Soup
½ cup each Sunny Select Salsa and Sunnyside Farms Sour Cream
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 medium yellow onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
3 teaspoons taco seasoning mix
¾ teaspoon ground cumin
1 can (4 ounces) Sunny Select Diced Mild Green Chiles
2 cups chopped boneless, skinless rotisserie chicken breast meat
1 package (8 ounces) shredded Mexican cheese blend (2 cups)
1 ½ tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves plus additional for garnish
½ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
12 (6-inch) corn tortillas
Sliced black olives, diced tomatoes and sliced green onions (optional)


Preheat oven to 350°. In medium bowl, mix soup, salsa and sour cream. In large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook 4 minutes. Add garlic, 2 teaspoons taco seasoning and 1/2 teaspoon cumin, and cook 5 minutes or until onion is tender, stirring occasionally. Add green chiles, chicken and half the soup mixture, and cook 2 minutes or until heated through. Remove skillet from heat; cool slightly. Stir in 1 cup cheese, cilantro and pepper.

Stir remaining 1 teaspoon taco seasoning and 1/4 teaspoon cumin into remaining soup mixture. Spread soup mixture into bottom of 13 x 9-inch baking dish. On microwave-safe plate, stack 6 tortillas between 2 damp paper towels; heat in microwave oven on high 30 seconds. While keeping remaining tortillas covered, place 1 tortilla at a time on work surface and spoon 1/3 cup filling down center. Fold sides over filling, then place enchiladas seam-side down and close together in prepared baking dish. Repeat process with remaining tortillas and filling. Sprinkle with remaining 1 cup cheese.

Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until edges bubble and top is lightly browned. To serve, sprinkle enchiladas with olives, tomatoes, green onions and cilantro, if desired.
