This is one of my fav recipes. Love that I can use the crockpot.

Salsa Verde Enchiladas

1 jar Trader Joe's salsa verde - 1.2 pts for the whole jar
2 large chicken breasts - mine were a total of 18 oz. uncooked - 18 pts
8 low fat high fiber whole wheat large tortillas (1 pakage) - 20 pts total
1 jar Trader Joe's enchillada sauce - 4. 5 pts for the whole jar
1 cup shredded part skim mozzarella cheese - 7 pts

50.7 points for the whole recipe
8 servings (serving size: 1 enchilada) at 6.5 points per serving.

Place chicken breasts in a crockpot
Pour salsa verde over top
Cook on low for 4-6 hours.
Shred chicken
Cook on warm for another hour to let the chicken really soak up the salsa verde flavor
Preheat oven to 350.
Place 1/8 of the shredded chicken in the middle one of the tortillas, spreading out so it is in a line. Roll and place in a large rectangular pyrex dish.
Repeat 7 more times. The rolled chicken filled tortillas should fill the pan in one layer.
Pour enchilada sauce over the all the rolled tortillas.
Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes
After 20 minutes, remove foil and sprinkle with cheese.
Bake another 10 minutes.
Remove from oven and let rest for 10 minutes.
