Chile-Chicken Enchiladas

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Cookin in Texas

I found this on an insert found on a can of Old El Paso green chilies. This is really good. My kids are very picky and love this.

I like these because they combine the regular "white" chicken enchiladas with the "red" sauce that's usually in beef/cheese enchilladas without them being too dry. I added a can of cream of chicken soup to the chicken mixture (because every other chicken enchillada recipe adds this) and added some of the enchillada sauce to the chicken mixture. My whole family liked these.
