FOR THE SAUCE, COMBINE:

Is it really possible to make enchiladas on a weeknight for two? When you use leftover or rotisserie chicken, this dish comes together in a snap.

Instructions

Preheat oven to 425°. Lightly coat 2 small baking dishes (or 1 medium baking dish) with nonstick spray.

For the filling, combine chicken, cream cheese, onion, 1 Tbsp. cilantro, and ½ tsp. cumin in a small bowl; season with salt and pepper. Wrap tortillas in a damp paper towel and heat in microwave until pliable, about 20 seconds. Divide filling among tortillas, roll, and place in prepared dishes, seam side down.

For the sauce, combine tomatoes, sour cream, jalapeño, lime juice, ½ tsp. salt, ½ tsp. black pepper, 18 tsp. cumin, and coriander in a large measuring cup. Pour sauce over enchiladas and top with cheese. Bake until golden, about 20 minutes; top with cilantro.

Heat tortillas in a damp paper towel in the microwave so they're pliable when filling and rolling them.

Roll tortillas firmly around filling and place in the pan, seam side down, so they hold together.
