Makeover Chicken Cheese Enchiladas Recipe

This made-over recipe features all the cheesy, savory goodness of the original in a much lighter form. Now Diane Witmer's family in Spencer, Wisconsin can enjoy these enchiladas for dinner with all the taste, but none of the guilt!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 45 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 1-1/2 cups (12 ounces) reduced-fat sour cream
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) reduced-fat reduced-sodium condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies
  • 1 can (2-1/4 ounces) sliced ripe olives, drained

  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese, divided
  • 12 fat-free flour tortillas (6 inches), warmed
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the sour cream, soup, chilies and olives. Set aside 1-1/2 cups for topping. Add the chicken, 1/2 cup Monterey Jack cheese and 1/2 cup cheddar cheese to remaining soup mixture.
  • 2. Spoon about 1/3 cup chicken mixture down the center of each tortilla; roll up tightly. Place seam side down in a 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Top with reserved soup mixture.

"To make even healthier I use whole wheat tortillas and substitute the sour cream with non-fat plain greek yogurt. These are extremely easy to make and taste delicious."

"The easiest way to make this recipe healthier is 1/2 the cheese and sour cream. Carb wise, use smaller tortillas... Otherwise, Yum!"

"i spiced up mine by adding some chopped jalapenos with the mixture and pan frying the chicken in crushed red peppers and i found some jalapeno chedder wraps that make these perfect."

"This is def a family favourite! :) It's a lil fatty so I only make it once every 2 weeks.... we've not once had leftovers. mmm DELISH! Instead of buying Monterey Jack & Cheddar Cheese I just buy a bag of Mexican Taco Cheese and it makes this recipe twice as good!!!"

"i thought it was rather blah. lacked flavor. if i was to make it again, which i probably won't, i'd add some hot sauce or chili powder to the soup mixture. maybe some canned corn too."

"Love this great idea to using leftover chiken and making a new change in menu! The low fat items DID NOT take away from the flavor. I will make this again, and again....
