    Irishcolleen's Note:

    This recipe is time consuming, but so well worth the time and trouble! I've noticed on this site that some people make chicken enchiladas with flour tortillas. That isn't an enchilada! Enchiladas are made with corn tortillas. Burritos are made with flour tortillas. For enchiladas, I prefer the white corn tortillas to the yellow, but use which ever you prefer. Delicioso!
