Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup onion, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened

  • 2 cups cooked, chopped chicken breasts
  • 8 medium sized flour tortillas
  • 1 (16 oz) jar green salsa
  • 2 cups shredded Mexican cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x13 baking pan with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Melt butter in large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook for five minutes, until softened. Add in garlic and cook for 1 minute more, until fragrant.
