So, you know Sargento®? The 100% real, delicious, natural cheese cut from blocks? Of course you do.
Well. Sargento is hosting a “Chopped at Home” contest and, just as the show, I was given 4 ingredients to create a delicious meal using  Sargento® Chef Blends™ Shredded 6 Cheese Italian, boneless chicken breasts, Greek yogurt, and a red bell pepper.

THANK the LAWD my basket didn’t contain quail eggs or some tropical fruit that looks like abstract art.

Inevitably I ended up standing in front of the fridge shoveling a bag of Sargento’s Shredded 6 Cheese Italian into my face as I was trying to come up with something. Anything!

Lucky me, I keep my stash of tortillas in the fridge, and as soon as I saw them, it wasn’t long before I started to work on my Chopped recipe. It just felt right.

These white chicken enchiladas feel like an extra special treat because they are filled with very cheesy chicken and topped with a yogurt sauce and roasted red bell pepper.

When cheese, yogurt-sauce and chicken combine, the angels sing. Buhlieve me.
