Step 1:

Start by preheating your oven to 375 degrees then lightly grease a 9 x 13 pan.

Step 2:

Get a mixing bowl and add softened cream cheese. Beat it with a hand mixer until it’s fluffy and light for about 60 seconds. Add the green chiles, lime juice, salt, cumin, chile powder, and cilantro and stir using a spoon or rubber spatula until well combined. Next, add the cooked chicken and fold.

Step 3:

Get another mixing bowl and add sour cream and salsa verde. Whisk together until well combined. Scoop a large spoonful of the salsa verde mixture and spread evenly into the bottom of the prepared pan.

Step 4:

Time to assemble the enchiladas. Place a big scoop of the chicken filling onto the center of a tortilla. Roll it, tuck the ends, then lay it in the pan. Repeat with the remaining tortillas.

Step 5:

Pour the remaining of the salsa mixture over the enchiladas, then sprinkle the Monterey jack cheese on top.

Step 6:

Place inside the preheated oven and bake for about 30 minutes, until the cheese is bubbly and lightly browned. After baking, place it under the broiler setting for 2-3 minutes to brown the top. Garnish with more freshly chopped cilantro if preferred.
