This is my Dad's favorite meal. It's great with a tossed salad. To make things easier, I started using shredded rotisserie chicken meat.

These provided me with a satisfying meal. I did find the enchiladas fairly bland, even though I had added 5 moderately hot green chilies. They must not have been as hot as I had hoped, because I couldn't even taste them. Next time, I would like to add more, hotter chilies. I also plan to saute the onion in some of the butter and then proceed to the sauce making. Even though the onion is baked, I find I prefer it sauteed. Thank you for sharing this recipe with us.
