1. Combine first 5 ingredients in a saucepan; bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Cook until reduced to 1 1/2 cups (about 15 minutes). Reduce heat to low; stir in whipping cream. Place pan over low heat.

3. Place chicken in a medium bowl. Add tomato and next 5 ingredients (through cream cheese) to chicken; toss. Dip each tortilla in sauce mixture for 10 seconds.

Spoon sauce over tortillas; top evenly with cheddar cheese. Bake at 400° for 20 minutes or until lightly browned.
