We are now into the time of year where hearty meals are welcomed. We want warm, stick-to-your-ribs good dinners to keep that cold chill out of our bones. In our family, that means everything comforting – soups, casseroles, lasagnas and enchiladas!
These Fiesta Cream Cheese Chicken Enchiladas to be exact.
For our busy family of five, dinners need to be quick and filling. With three elementary-aged kids {two of whom are heavily involved in sports} they are always hungry.
ALWAYS.
Often I am prepping and making food in between school and practices and more often than not we are eating in shifts. It just depends on the day!

My kids {and the husband, can’t forget him} absolutely love Mexican food. It regularly makes the rounds weekly. Who can blame them? It’s full of flavor and often feeds a hungry crowd.
My crowd.
MissionFoods has now introduced these Mission® ProteinTortilla Wraps. They are lower carb, high in fiber and a good source of protein. With my three very active kids they fit the bill.

They also have the added health benefits of incorporating plant-based protein {which I think we often forget about} into a balanced diet.

I used all our favorite enchilada fillings to stuff into these Mission®  Protein Tortilla Wraps. What is not to love about the ease of shredded rotisserie chicken mixed together with cream cheese, peppers, Mexi-spices and shredded queso cheese?
Nothing.
There is nothing wrong with that.
And then I did the unthinkable. I poured heavy cream over the top of these beauties right before they were topped with more cheese and baked. It makes for the most incredible cheese sauce.
These enchiladas are tender, yet just a tad crispy on the outside where the cheese is lightly browned. They are perfect.

Who wouldn’t want to eat at this table?
In my opinion, nothing looks more inviting. Hearty, creamy, cheesy enchiladas served and topped with fresh salsa and slices of ripe avocado.
Tasty, right?
Dinner doesn’t have to be intimidating or awkward. Serve this on a Tuesday night to your family or serve this to friends who have gathered at your house for a celebration. Either works!
There isn’t a person who will turn these down.
