  • 2-10 ounce cans mild green chile enchilada sauce
  • 1/3 cup half-and-half regular or fat-free will work
  • 1/3 cup non-fat Greek yogurt
  • 4 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese
  • 4 ounce can diced green chiles
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups cooked shredded chicken divided
  • 8 medium flour tortillas
  • 2 cups Mexican cheese blend divided, 2% or regular


  • Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.
  • In a saucepan over medium-low heat, stir together enchilada sauce, half-and-half, yogurt, cream cheese, and chiles until cream cheese is melted and sauce is well-combined. You don’t want the sauce to boil, so adjust the heat as necessary.
  • Add the 1/2 cup chicken to the sauce, and let it warm in sauce for 5 minutes.
  • Season with salt and pepper as desired.
  • Meanwhile, warm the tortillas.
  • To assemble the burritos, divide the remaining chicken among the burritos.
  • Pour about 2-3 tablespoons of sauce over the chicken, and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon cheese.
  • Fold up the bottom and fold down the top of the tortilla.
  • Roll up the burrito and place seam-side down in the baking dish.
  • Repeat with remaining tortillas.
  • Pour the remaining sauce over the burritos.
  • Sprinkle with remaining 1 ½ cups of cheese.
  • Cover with greased foil and bake for about 20 minutes, removing the foil during the last 5 minutes of baking. The sauce should be bubbly, and the cheese should be melted.
