Cheesy White Chicken Enchiladas

I found this recipe online and this sounded like the perfect way to serve enchiladas to my sister, and as you know my love for enchiladas, I was game.  The only issue is that this recipe basically calls for no Mexican ingredients... the only way these can be called enchiladas is the tortilla shells.  However, I decided to add some more spices to these, which I'm glad I did because they would have been a little bland.
