    True Texas's Note:

    First Place winner in a newspaper recipe contest, not mine, but my aunt had clipped it out. These enchiladas are sooo good, they taste as good as my favorite Mexican restrauant serves. The last time I made I ended up with 16, I used a whole chicken though. I did add about 1/2 cup half-and-half to thin the sauce, since I had some I need to use up, regular milk would work too.
