Pumpkin Chicken Enchiladas

Ingredients
Chicken Filling:
2 Tablespoons Butter
1/2 c Red Onion, Diced
1/3 c Red Bell Pepper, Diced
3 c Cooked Chicken, Shredded
1/2 c Grated Cotija Cheese, Divided
Salt And Pepper, to taste

Sauce:

 

1 whole Jalapeno, Seeded and Minced
2 cloves Garlic, Peeled and Minced
1 c Pumpkin Puree
1 tsp Chili Powder
1/2 tsp Cumin
1/4 tsp Dry Oregano
1/2 c Chicken Broth

8 whole Small Corn Tortillas (or Corn-Flour Tortillas)
1 c White Cheddar Cheese, Grated
Green Onions, For Garnish
Fresh Cilantro For Garnish
Preparation Instructions
Preheat the oven to 425ºF.
Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add onion and bell peppers. Sauté the onions and peppers until soft, about 5 minutes.
Place shredded chicken in a large bowl. Add sautéed onion and peppers, ¼ cup of Cotija, and salt and pepper to taste. Mix to combine and set aside.
Place the minced jalapeño and garlic in a food processor. Add the pumpkin puree, chili powder, cumin, oregano, Greek Yogurt, and chicken stock. Pulse to combine.
Pour 1 cup of sauce in the bottom of an 8×13 baking dish. If using regular corn tortillas, heat the tortillas in the microwave for 45 seconds, until they are warm and pliable. No need to do this step with corn-flour tortillas. Spoon about 1/4-1/3 cup of chicken mixture onto each tortilla. Roll up each tortilla and lay them in the pan, seam side down.
Pour the remaining sauce over the tortillas. Top with grated cheddar, remaining ¼ cup Cotija, and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
Garnish with green onions and chopped cilantro.
