Aunt Cathy's Chicken Enchiladas

Everyone needs an Aunt Cathy! She's fun, to the point, and easily riled. She is there when you really need her, and she has been part of our family for more than 40 years. Most of my memories have her as part of them, and she also played an integral role in helping us to birth our babies. Cathy makes many good dishes, but she only sent a couple my way which I will post here.

Aunt Cathy's Chicken Enchiladas

2 cups chopped cooked chicken or turkey
1 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 pkg (8 ounces) cream cheese, cubed
1 jar (8 ounces) salsa, divided
8 (6 inch) flour tortillas
3/4 pound (12 ounces) Velveeta cheese, cut up
1/4 cup milk

Stir chicken, pepper, cream cheese, and 1/2 cup salsa in sauce pan on low heat until cream cheese is melted.
Spoon 1/3 cup chicken mixture down center of each tortilla; roll up. Place seam side down in lightly greased 12"x8" baking dish.
Stir processed cheese and milk in sauce pan on low; heat till smooth. Pour cheese sauce over tortillaas; cover with foil. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Pour remaining salsa over tortillas before serving. Makes 4-6 servings.
