Jalapeno Popper Chicken Enchiladas

Jalapeno Poppers are one of my favorite appetizers. I love the cheesy/spicy combination. I've been seeing a lot of Jalapeno dip recipes and it got me thinking.... why not try a Jalapeno Popper Chicken Enchilada dish? I'm always looking for new recipe ideas and I figured this would be a great one. Let me tell you, this dish was fantastic! Not the most diet friendly recipe, but I did try to lighten it up by using reduced fat cheeses. The end result was fantastic!

Jalapeno Popper Chicken Enchiladas

2 cups diced cooked chicken breasts
4 oz reduced fat cream cheese
1 1/4 cups reduced fat cheddar cheese, divided
6 slices crisply cooked bacon, chopped
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tbsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1 jalapeno pepper seeded finely chopped
1/3 cup salsa verde
8 small flour tortillas ( I used taco size)

Preheat oven to 375

Lightly spray a 13x9 inch baking dish with cooking spray and spread two tablespoons of salsa on bottom of dish

In a mixing bowl add chicken, spices, cream cheese, 3/4 cup of cheddar cheese, bacon, and jalapeno. Stir well to combine. Divide filling evenly between tortillas and roll up. Place seam side down in casserole dish and top with remaining cheddar cheese and enchilada sauce.

Bake uncovered for 20 minutes or until cheese is browned and bubbly. Enjoy!
