Chicken or Turkey Enchiladas

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by ChipotleChick

I found this recipe in an old Betty Crocker grocery store recipe book (my friend gave me a huge pile of them, so I have made quite a few). This is a very different and much lower fat version than the ones that use cream of chicken soup. My whole family enjoyed these, even the 5 year old!

These were phenomenal! We used leftover turkey from Thanksgiving. They were so flavorful. I will definitely make these again. There is no parsley called for in the ingredient list, but there is in the directions, so we just used all cilantro. I think this was fine. Thanks so much for posting!
