CREAM CHEESE CHICKEN ENCHILADAS

Preheat oven to 350º F and lightly grease a 9×13-inch baking dish with non-stick spray.

In a mixing bowl, stir together 1/2 cream cheese, chicken, 1 cup cheese, lime juice, cumin and chili powder, and season with salt and pepper, if desired.

Optional: broil for 3-5 minutes, or until lightly browned.
