Chicken Enchiladas

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by MamaMeg

This recipe came out of a family circle magazine. It was a recipe that crisco put in the magazine, but they are wonderful enchiladas. I highly suggest you make the enchilada sauce rather than using the can stuff because it has excellent flavor.

My first cullinary experience with Mexican! They were awesome! Followed the receipe as written. I was cutting corners and bought canned enchilada sauce, opened the can and you know what it tasted like? A CAN! Thank goodness you also included a recipe for sauce, and I had every ingredient in the house. Thank you! My husband gave me a high five at the dinner table as he was eating it! Served this with corn bread Mexican rice and recipe #34624 Cheesy Sauteed Corn Mexican Style.
