Donna's Creamy Chicken Enchiladas

Recipe by lazyme

I have no idea where I got this recipe or who Donna is, but this is a simple and tasty enchilada dish. It goes together quickly because you start with a rotisserie chicken.

I made this, but I made some changes and errors that damaged the end results. Feeling very stupid. I had to use salsa instead of picante sauce because the latter was too high in sodium; I also had to use lowfat versions of the dairy products. I think this would have been much better if I hadn't done any of those things. I added some chipotle and ancho pepper powders, along with cayenne pepper, for some more heat. That change actually was good. Thanks for a quick, easy meal!
