Simply amazing!!! The dish was a hit for Christmas dinner. I added red onions and green peppers to the chicken mixture for a extra kick.

I tried this tonight. I used Turkey breast, and used rotel tomatoes.
The cream cheese mixture was simply yummy. I made my own enchilada sauce using 3 cans of rotel tomatoes , a fe tsp of green chili diced, sourcream , cumin, chili spices, Combined in my food processor. Thank you for the ideas.
