Step 1

Preheat oven 325°F.

In a medium bowl, combine the cream, cream cheese and sour cream; mix well. Stir in 1/2 cup salsa and 1/2 cup of each type of cheese.

In a separate bowl, toss the chicken, corn, cumin, chili powder, salt, pepper, and half of the scallions. Add the chicken mixture to the cheese mixture and mix well.

Spread 1/2 cup salsa in the bottom of a baking dish. Place 1/3 to 1/2 cup filling on a tortilla, roll up and put in dish seam side down. Repeat this process for the remaining tortillas.

Pour remaining salsa over enchiladas and spread evenly to coat them all. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
