Good enchiladas! I used a rotisserie chicken and made as directed except that I used a 4-cheese Mexican blend. Simple and good. Thanks Shannon.
Wonderful. Made this at 4 am, i had done the sauce earlier then got hungry lol. I thought it would be rather bland because the sauce didnt have much zip, but with the jalapeno's on the chicken, it just worked like a dream. Easy too. I will freeze the rest of the sauce, and anytime i buy rotisserie chicken i have a great dinner
