Creamy Chicken Enchiladas

These are Delish...and Easy!...and Quick!

2 large onions, thinly sliced
2 cups cooked chicken, chopped
1/2 cup roasted red peppers, chopped
8 ounces neufchatel cheese, cubed
2 tablespoons butter
8 whole flour tortillas
28 ounces green enchilada sauce
8 ounces Monterey jack cheese, grated

In a wide frying pan over medium heat, cook the onions in butter, for 20 minutes. Stir frequently to keep onions from burning. Remove from heat and add chicken, red bell peppers, and cream cheese; stir gently to blend, and season with salt. Pour a little green sauce in bottom of 9X13 baking pan. Spoon about 1/3 C of filling down center of each tortilla and roll. Set enchiladas, seam side down in baking pan. Continue until pan is full. Cover with remaining sauce and top with grated cheese. At this point you may cover and refrigerate. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. If refrigerated, bake for 30 minutes, 15 minutes covered, remove foil and bake 15 minutes more. If not refrigerated, bake uncovered for 20 minutes. Makes approximately 12 enchiladas.
