Pickled hot peppers in cream cheese chicken enchiladas

After I made pickled hot peppers with jalapenos and habaneros I was wondering what to do with them. I considered putting them in chili, but I’m so attached to my specific chili recipe I use that I didn’t want to alter it in any way.

However, tonight I used pickled hot peppers instead of green chilis in cream cheese chicken enchiladas, and it worked out fantastically.

Give it a try. 

Better yet, let me know if you have a recipe that specifically calls for pickled hot peppers.

Cream cheese chicken enchiladas

I hadn’t made enchiladas for years – the last time I did I made them with beef and I just wasn’t crazy about them.

But I found this recipe from TheSpiffyCookie.com and it will most definitely be going into the dinner rotation. “Add it to the list!” as the fiance says.

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tbsp sour cream
  • 5 oz enchilada sauce, divided
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese, divided (or, half cup Cheddar, half cup Monterey Jack)
  • 1 cup shredded chicken
  • 1/2 cup corn kernels (I used Del Monte summer crisp corn)
  • 2 oz diced green chiles
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder*
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced and divided
  • 4 (8-inch) tortilla wraps

*The original recipe also calls for a tiny bit of cumin, which I happen to be out of at the moment, but the recipe worked fine without it.
