    Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 12x8-inch (2-quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray.
  • 2
    In 2-quart saucepan, stir broth, flour, cumin, garlic powder and red pepper with whisk until blended. Cook over medium-high heat about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until mixture boils and thickens slightly. Remove from heat; beat in yoghurt until mixed well.

    In medium bowl, mix chicken, 1 cup of the cheese blend, the green onions, cilantro, green chiles, chili powder and 1/2 cup of the chicken broth mixture. On microwavable plate, cover tortillas with wet paper towel; microwave on High 30 to 45 seconds to soften. Spoon slightly less than 1/2 cup chicken mixture down center of each tortilla. Roll up tortillas; arrange seam side down in baking dish. Top with remaining chicken broth mixture. Spray foil with cooking spray; cover baking dish with foil, sprayed side down.
