Chicken Enchiladas

This recipe is a family favorite.  The guys ask me to make it all the time.  I posted it on my blog when I first started blogging and I thought it was time for a photo reshoot.  

2 T.  butter
2  lg. onion, thinly sliced
2 cups chopped cooked chicken
2 (3 oz.) pkgs. cream cheese, cubed
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 (4.5 oz.) can diced green chiles
1 small onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. sugar
1 (14 1/2 oz.) can chicken broth
1/2 cup salsa
10 (7-inch) flour tortillas
2 cups (8 oz.) shredded cheddar

Sour cream as garnish

Melt butter in skillet over medium heat; stir often; add onion and cook until caramelized. Reduce heat to low and add chopped chicken,  cream cheese, salt, and pepper.  Pulse chiles, small onion, garlic, oregano, cumin, and sugar in a blender or food processor until combined.  Bring chile mixture and chicken broth to a broil in a saucepan over high heat; cook 5 minutes.  Remove from heat and stir in salsa.  Spread 1/3 chile mixture evenly on bottom of greased 13x9-inch baking dish.  Spoon chicken mixture evenly down center of each tortilla; roll up and place, seam side down, in prepared baking dish.  Top with remaining chile mixture; sprinkle with cheese.  Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes.

Here is my original photo from this recipe post from 2010.  I have improved a little on my food photography since then. 

Now, I like to shoot the photo like your sitting at the table about to take the next bite.
