Directions:
Spoon 1/2 cup enchilada sauce into a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. In a large saucepan, cook and stir the cream cheese and salsa over medium heat for 2-3 minutes or until blended. Stir in the chicken, beans and chiles.

Place about 1/3 cup of chicken mixture down the center of each tortilla. Roll up and place seam side down over sauce. Top with remaining enchilada sauce; sprinkle with cheese.

Cover and bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until heated through. Serve with lettuce, tomato, sour cream and olives if desired.

Personal Notes:
Any beans can be used in this recipe in place of the pinto beans—for example, black beans or kidney beans.

Flour tortillas have a milder flavor and tend to get softer than the more hearty and fragrant corn tortillas. Both will work!
