Here is a recipe for Chicken Enchiladas that I saw in a Diabetes Cookbook. They looked pretty good so I thought I would pass them along.

1 can (10 oz) Old El Paso enchilada sauce
1/4 cup cilantro sprigs
1/4 cup parsley sprigs
1 tablespoon lime juice
2 cloves garlic
2 cups chopped cooked chicken or turkey
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (4 oz)
6 Old El Paso flour tortillas for soft tacos & fajitas (6 inch; from 10.5-oz package)

1. Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 11x7-inch (2-quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray.
2. In blender or food processor, place enchilada sauce, cilantro, parsley, lime juice and garlic. Cover; blend on high speed about 30 seconds or until smooth.
