Chicken Enchiladas

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Legna

I found this recipe in an ad for Crisco oil. My family & I have yet to find a better tasting enchilada (even at resaurants). You can use leftover chicken/turkey/pork, whatever you have, they all taste great. You can cook the chicken however you'd like, I usually boil/grill it. So, the prep time is approximate, it just depends on if you cook it or use leftovers.
