  1. Heat oven to 375°F. Brush melted butter on all sides of boats; place in 3-quart baking dish. Bake 5 to 8 minutes or until brown and firm to the touch. Boats will crisp slightly as they cool.
  2. Meanwhile, in 10-inch nonstick skillet, cook beef, onion and garlic over medium heat 8 to 9 minutes, stirring occasionally, until brown; drain. Reserve 1/3 cup of the enchilada sauce. Stir remaining enchilada sauce and green chiles into beef mixture; return to heat. Simmer mixture, uncovered, over medium heat 10 to 12 minutes or until thickened.
  3. Spoon filling into boats; top with shredded cheese, and drizzle with remaining enchilada sauce. Bake 4 to 5 minutes or until cheese is melted. Top with green onions.
