This is one of the most popular recipes for chicken enchiladas in our files. The easy dinner recipe produces wonderfully creamy enchiladas, thanks thanks to cream cheese and sour cream, but there's pleny of heat and spice, too, thanks to chile peppers and cumin.

  • In a medium skillet cook the 1/4 cup almonds and the onion in hot butter over medium heat until onion is tender and nuts are lightly toasted. Remove from heat. Stir in 1 tablespoon of the canned green chile peppers; reserve remaining peppers for sauce.

Bake, uncovered, in a 350 degree oven about 35 minutes or until heated through. Remove foil. Sprinkle enchiladas with cheese and the 2 tablespoons almonds. Return to oven; bake about 5 minutes more or until cheese melts. Makes 6 servings.

There's an error in the directions. It instructs to cover with foil, yet bake *uncovered*. The print cookbook has the correct directions. FYI the print cookbook (newest version) calls for 1 tsp of cumin where the online version calls for 1/4 tsp.
