Chicken Enchiladas (Rachael Ray)

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Melissa Spangler

Very tasty, just like you get at your favorite Mexican restaurant. This came from the Food Network website, one of Rachael Ray's recipes. Don't let the cinnamon in the sauce scare you - it's a key ingredient. Also, use about 1 teaspoon dried oregano if you don't have fresh, as called for in this recipe.

I loved it but my husband hated it...he likes the ones with the creamy fillings...I thought it had so much flavor and really didn't have any fat! I used flour tortillas though which I like much better than the corn ones!
