I have been writing this blog for nearly 3 1/2 years now. I could go back and count how many recipes are on here, but that might take me awhile. 3 1/2 years worth of recipes is a lot of recipes. But do you know what?? I still get nervous when someone says they have tried one or are going to try one of the recipes I’ve posted. I’m afraid other people won’t like them. I guess I need a little self confidence – because really – I don’t even write my own recipes. If someone doesn’t like it, it’s not really my fault, is it?? I guess it is, though, because I recommended the recipe. Regardless, I still get nervous sometimes.

But then there are blogs like Cassie’s. I’ve been reading her blog for awhile now, and it’s kind of funny how many of the same recipes we have tried. I’ll get on to read her blog and I’ll have to smile when I see some of the same recipes I’ve made – I’m pretty sure we’d get along great in real life because we have such a similar taste in food! Hers is a blog I can go to and I know I will find something that I will love – like these enchiladas. When I saw her post these, I thought to myself that it had been awhile since I had made enchiladas, and then that’s all I wanted. I finally got around to making this recipe, and I’m happy to say that Cassie did not let me down! I actually have an enchilada recipe kind of similar to this that I used to make quite often, but I loved how this one had corn in it. We all know I’ve been on a corn kick lately!! I’m always happy to find a blog that I know I can trust and who’s recipes will always turn out wonderful!

Do you have a blog who’s recipes you make often?

Cream Cheese Chicken Enchiladas
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
A creamy enchilada recipe with shredded chicken, cream cheese and corn.
Serves: 4-6 servings
  • 5 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • 2 cups prepared salsa
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1 cup shredded pepper-jack cheese, divided
  • 2 cups cooked shredded chicken
  • 1 cup frozen corn kernels, thawed
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cumin
  • Salt and pepper
  • 4 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 8 (8-inch) flour tortillas
  1. Preheat the oven to 325F.
  2. In a medium bowl, cream together the cream cheese and sour cream. Stir in ½ cup of the salsa. Stir in ½ cup of each of the cheeses, the chicken, the corn, chili powder, and cumin. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in half of the scallions.
  3. Spread ½ cup of the salsa in the bottom of a 9x13-inch baking dish. Place about ½ cup of the chicken mixture down the center of one of the tortillas. Roll up and place in the dish, seam side down. Repeat with the remaining tortillas and filling.
  4. Pour the remaining salsa over the top of the enchiladas. Top with the remaining cheese. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the enchiladas are heated through.
  5. Sprinkle with the remaining scallions and serve.

    3 1/2 years of blogging! Wow! I am fairly new and have so much to learn. I enjoy visiting sites and bookmarking all the good recipes!

  2. Stephanie says:

    I love your site and your recipes are golden. I know that they will usually have ingredients that I either have or can find easily and the meals (or muffins) will be tasty and usally quick. I also like another blog called noble pig.

  3. Kitten with a Whisk says:

    I live for enchilades. Now I want to make some!

    And you are not alone with being worried people won't like the recipes. I secretly worry about it too.

  4. Jennifurla says:

    Everyone has different tastes, no pleasing everyone! I love your blog, keep it up

  5. Kim says:

    Enchiladas can be hard to take picture of, but you nailed it! I make a recipe similar to this but with beef instead of chicken. I love the creaminess from the cream cheese. Look great!

  6. Rosa's Yummy Yums says:

    So comforting and naughty! I can never get enough of that kind of dish!



  7. Cassie says:

    I'm so glad you liked these! (I always get nervous, too, when someone tries something I've posted. What if they don't liiiike it?!)

    I think we'd get along really well in real life too. 🙂 Thanks for all the kind words, Deborah!

  8. Joanne says:

    I get the same way when someone makes one of my recipes! It's totally irrational, but still.

    Oo do these sound good! I've got a serious Mexican craving going on now…

  9. Monet says:

    I feel that your site and your recipes are pitch perfect…but I understand how you feel, I get nervous too. These enchiladas look creamy and cheesy…just the way I like them!

  10. scrambledhenfruit says:

    These look so delicious! I think everyone who shares a recipe, whether it's on a blog or not, has apprehension that it won't be pleasing to another. Keep posting them though- your recipes are great!

  11. Jean Bugs says:

    I get nervous, too! Isn't it funny that most of us do? And I gt totally excited when someone says they read my blog! I don't get many comments, so it's rewarding to know that someone is reading 🙂
    I love your blog, Deborah! Of course I read Pioneer Woman (who doesn't?) and Steamy Kitchen is a favorite!

  12. Twenty-Something Blonde says:

    SOUNDS AWESOME! I have a family chicken enchilada recipe that I love, but I'm definitely going to have to try this out! You can't go wrong with mexican!

  13. teresa says:

    i tend to get a bit nervous too! but i figure not everyone is going to think the same as me, what one person find delicious, another person could easily find disgusting.

    this looks DELICIOUS! with ingredients like that how could you go wrong?

  14. Patsyk says:

    Love this recipe! Looks like a great meal for when school starts back up again in September.

    I find that Recipegirl and Sweetnicks have many recipes that I can count on to be awesome whenever I make them.

  15. Karly says:

    I get that same nervous feeling when someone says they are making something of mine. It doesn't matter that I loved it…they might hate it!

    These look amazing!

  16. kat says:

    I still get that fear as well. I've made a lot of recipes from Stacey Snacks & Kalofagas

  17. eatme_delicious says:

    I totally know what you mean about being nervous when people say they're going to make something from your blog. I get especially nervous if they're going to make like a healthy muffin and might be expecting a cake muffin so they won't like it. Anyway, I don't know if I've ever had cream cheese in enchiladas but it sounds like it would be amazing!

  18. Jena says:

    I am making these for supper tonight and they look delicious! I slowcooked the chicken so it was perfectly shred up. The only thing I added was bacon to the mixture, and crumbled some on top as well! Can’t wait to have this for supper tonight! 🙂

  19. June says:

    I didn’t see what to do with the corn??

  20. June says:

    I missed that !!

    I once made a pasta salad everyone at work loved and talked about the next day. One lady was not there that day so she asked me for the recipe so she could try it since everyone love it. Long story short she made it and was honest enough to say it was not to her liking. Of course as we talked she totally changed the ingredients. It called for bow tie pasta she used linguine. It called for Parmesan cheese she used Monterey Jack. Lol on and on she listed her changes. She did not make MY salad. She made HERS!
