Well I have put together my meal for this holiday in about an hour.  I always forget I am cooking for one for the next couple of months .   Good thing I know a few friends I can pack some of it up for!  Here is my creation for today! (I sometimes add shredded rotisserie  chicken)

Cheese and Green Chili Enchilada’s

For Enchilada’s

Prepare Casserole dish by spraying with Canola oil. I used 4 Flour tortilla’s and laid them in the dish as I filled them.  First take one flour tortilla, lay  a whole green chili (I bought a small can), then a slice of Cream cheese (Lite), some chopped onion (optional),  a handful of  a  mix of shredded cheddar & Jack cheese.  Start at one end and roll in dish as the outer Tortilla will coat with oil as you roll.  Then repeat with remaining Tortilla’sThen Spray the top with the Canola oil and put in the oven for 20-30 min @ 350

Rolled and ready for the oven!
