  2. Saute the onion, garlic, and bell pepper until soft, then transfer to a large bowl. Add the chicken 2 cups cheese, green chili peppers, chinese parsley, cumin, chipotle, corn, salt, pepper, and jalapenos (optional); and mix.
  3. Place about 1/3 cup of the chicken mix along the edge of the tortilla, and roll tightly into a tube. Place the enchilada, seam-side down, into the prepared baking dish.
