Aunt Bee's Caramelized Onion & Cream Cheese Enchiladas

152

We are on day 3 of 'grill once, eat 3 times.' We got a huge pack of chicken breast on sale for 1.79/lb so I have had fun coming up with ways to use it up in completely different meals. These enchiladas were a cinch to throw together, using leftover grilled chicken and especially since I caramelized the onions while I was cleaning up the kitchen from lunch. We have been making a version of this recipe for years.

4
1 onion, diced
2 TBSP butter
1 tsp sugar
2 cups chicken, cooked and diced or shredded
8 oz block cream cheese, softened
10 oz can rotel, drained (mild or original, whichever you prefer)
1 tsp garlic powder
(8) 8 inch tortillas
8 oz block of monterey jack cheese, shredded
2 cups heavy cream
In a medium saute pan, add the diced onion, butter and sugar. Saute over medium/low heat for 20 minutes stirring often until light brown in color. Add the cooked chicken, rotel, cream cheese and garlic...
