Directions:
In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients up to tortillas. Spray a 9"x13" pan with cooking spray. Take one tortilla, fill with about 1/2 cup filling, and roll up. Place in the pan. Repeat with remaining filling and tortillas. Then pour the whole can of enchilada sauce over the enchiladas. Top with the grated cheese. Cover the pan with foil and bake in a 350 oven for 45 minutes or until bubbly in the center. If you like a browned appearance you may remove the foil for the last 10 minutes of baking. Let stand for 10-15 minutes before serving. Serve with a dollop of sour cream and a spoonful of the California Avocado Salsa with mango added. (Recipe also found in this cookbook.)

Personal Notes:
I made these up for a church dinner party and got rave reviews. You can leave out the mango in the salsa if you don't like the fruitiness. Don't skip the salsa though, it really makes the dish pop. I've made this with lower fat cheese and reduced fat cream cheese, and it's still delicious. I usually use a medium enchilada sauce, but it seems to be quite spicy. I would definitely get a mild sauce if you don't like a lot of heat.
