Chicken Enchiladas

olive oil
3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1" cubes (or smaller)
2 tsp. cumin
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, diced
16 oz. light sour cream
4 green onions, chopped
2 (4.5 oz) cans diced chilies
2 c. shredded Mexican-blend cheese
8 oz. block of light cream cheese, cut into 8 long strips
8 large flour tortillas
jar of enchilada sauce (16 oz?)

Preheat oven to 375, and spray a large casserole dish with olive oil (13x9).
Over medium to medium-high heat, saute chicken with salt, pepper, and 1 tsp. cumin. When almost cooked thru, add in onion and garlic, cooking till translucent.
In a large bowl, mix sour cream, 1 tsp. cumin, green onions, chilies, and 1 c. cheese. Add in chicken mixture (if it has a lot of liquid in it, drain that off first...gross I know).
Spoon about 1/2 c. of filling in the center of each tortilla, then lay a strip of cream cheese on top. Fold up ends of tortilla, then roll up to seal. Place seam side down in casserole dish. You will probably have to cram the enchiladas in the casserole to get them all to fit!!
Pour the jar of sauce over the enchiladas, then cover with tinfoil. Bake at 375 for about 20 minutes, or until filling is heated thru, and sauce begins to bubble. Remove the foil, sprinkle the remaining cup of cheese over the top, baking for another 5-10 minutes till cheese is melted and bubbly.
