Chicken Enchiladas

The Best Chicken Enchiladas

The Best Chicken Enchiladas

This is by far my families favorite meal. Even the kids come back for seconds! We all agree this is the Best Chicken Enchiladas, we have tried a few different kinds. I first learned this recipe  from a friend and have adjusted it to what my family likes. At least once a week my little girl will ask for enchiladas.

It does have a little heat since it does include Jalapenos but you can just leave those out and it becomes a very mild dish. Like I have stated above I have adjusted this to what my family likes. Give it a tweek or two to make it your own then wait for you family to beg for more.

You could also add onions, green peppers, sour cream, Salsa, tomatoes, it really is whatever you think your family would like.

The best part it is does not leave a huge mess in my kitchen. I use one large pot, a medium sauce pan and a baking dish to make this yummy meal. Less dishes for the hubby to do when I am done!

So here we go.
