    Make enchiladas! Sauté white onion and green chilis with a bit of cumin then add cream cheese. Fill tortillas and place in a baking pan, like little burritos. Either save some of the onion, green chili and cumin mixture or make more add a can or two of cream of chicken soup, salt pepper, garlic powder, chili powder and red pepper flake to taste. Cook until bubbling and a quarter cup cheese of choice and pour over tortillas. Sprinkle with more cheese and bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
