Tyson Chicken Enchillada Cheese Sauce?

I recently tried Tyson's new Chicken Enchilladas...They come in a bag... 7 Tortillas, a bag of precooked diced chicken, and 2 packages of cheese sauce... a "chipotle" cheese sauce to mix with the chicken for the enchillada filling, and a "sour cream" cheese sauce for the topping...

I'm sure their super unhealthy, but their really yummy :) ... My question is... If any of you have tried it, do you have any idea how I could copy one, or both of the cheese sauces?

I'd love to make my own copy-kat Enchilladas, using better quality chicken, and maybe save a few bucks in the process. :)

Any info you can share will be greatly appreciated! :)

PS - If you haven't tried them, give'm a shot if you can find'm... Their yummy :)

I've never tried the product you are talking so I can't comment on that but I do make an enchilada casserole quite often. The recipe was originally my mom's but I've tweaked it a bit as we tend to like our stuff a bit spicer than they do. It's a nice lasagna style enchilda dish so easier and quicker than the rolling ones to make, imho.

The original recipe...
3 C cooked chicken - shredded or cubed (rotisserie chickens work really good or canned in a pinch)
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 small bunch green onions
1 can green chiles
1 - 1 1/2 C mozzarella cheese (shredded)
1 pkg, 6" tortilla shells

Mix chicken, cream of chick soup, sour cream, onions and chiles together. In a lightly greased 9 x 13 inch pan, layer the tortilla shells and spread 1/3 of the chicken mixture over them. Place another layer of tortilla shells on top and another 1/3 of the chicken mixture. Make one more layer of shells and chicken mixture and sprinkle mozzarella cheese over the top. Bake at 350 for 40 - 45 minutes.

Additions / Modifications ...
I saute a medium sweet onion (regular yellow would work as well) and then combine the other layering stuff in the pan. To the mixture, I also add 2 chopped chipotle peppers and a scoop of adobo sauce, along with the green chiles. Finally, I use 1/2 mozzarella and 1/2 cheddar to cover the dish rather than all mozzarella.
