Steps

  • 1 In medium bowl, combine chicken, 1 1/2 cups of the cheese, green chiles, onion and sour cream; mix well. Set aside.
  • 2 Heat grill for indirect cooking as directed by manufacturer. Spray both sides of each tortilla with nonstick cooking spray. Stack tortillas on microwave-safe plate; cover with microwave-safe paper towel. Microwave on HIGH for 30 seconds.
  • 3 Cut 4 (18x12-inch) sheets of heavy-duty foil. Spray foil with nonstick cooking spray. Spread 1/3 cup chicken mixture down center of each warm tortilla; roll up. Place 2 enchiladas, seam side down, on each sheet of sprayed foil. Drizzle each pair of roll-ups with about 1/4 cup enchilada sauce. Wrap each packet securely using double-fold seals, allowing room for heat expansion.
  • 4 When ready to grill, place foil packets, seam side up, on grill for indirect cooking. Cook 10 to 12 minutes or until enchiladas are thoroughly heated.
  • 5 To serve, carefully open packets to allow steam to escape. Place enchiladas on serving plates. Top individual servings with remaining 1/2 cup cheese.

Expert Tips

Shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese can be used in place of the Mexican cheese blend.

Thawed frozen South-western-flavored chicken strips can be diced and substituted for the plain diced chicken.

To reduce the fat in this dish by about 18 grams, use nonfat sour cream and reduced-fat Cheddar cheese.

Dress up these enchiladas with diced tomato, sliced ripe olives and chopped cilantro.

Spanish rice from a can is an easy accompaniment.
