In medium saucepan combine green enchilada sauce, soup, cilantro and cumin. Heat on medium-low until mixture comes to a boil. In a separate bowl, combine chicken and 3/4 cup shredded cheese and 1/2 cup of sauce mixture. In a medium pan, heat 1 Tbsp of oil. Lightly fry one tortilla at a time for about 10 seconds each.
