2 cups chopped fresh cilantro (about 1 bunch)
1 cup finely chopped tomatillos (about 4 medium)
1/4 cup minced red onion
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
2 1/2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon canola oil
1 teaspoon adobo sauce

1/2 cup (4 ounces) block-style fat-free cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup (2 ounces) goat cheese
How to Make It
To prepare salsa, remove 2 chipotle chiles from can; finely chop to measure 2 teaspoons. Remove 1 teaspoon adobo sauce from can, and set aside (reserve remaining chipotle chiles and adobo sauce for another use). Combine chiles, cilantro, tomatillos, onion, and 1/4 cup lime juice in a medium bowl; cover and chill for 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 375°.
To prepare chips, combine 2 1/2 teaspoons lime juice, canola oil, adobo sauce, paprika, and cumin in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Brush 1 tortilla with about 1/4 teaspoon juice mixture, spreading to edge. Top with another tortilla; repeat procedure with juice mixture. Repeat procedure 6 more times (you will have 1 stack of 8 tortillas). Using a sharp knife, cut tortilla stack into 6 wedges. Place wedges in a single layer on baking sheets. Bake at 375° for 15 minutes; turn wedges. Bake an additional 10 minutes.
Reduce oven temperature to 350°.
To prepare cheese, combine cream cheese and goat cheese in a small bowl; stir until blended. Spread cheese mixture into a shallow 6-ounce ramekin or baking dish; cover with foil. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes or just until warm.
