Recipe by Sue Lau
These tasty enchiladas are made with chicken and have three colors on them (representing the Mexican flag). There is a delicious green sauce (which represents hope and the independence movement). There is light refreshing sour cream to garnish in white (which represents purity and the purity of the Catholic faith). There is a tasty tomato salsa in red (which represents union, and the Spaniards that joined in the quest for Independence- also the blood of the National Heroes). Easy to prepare, and great for any Mexican party or Latino themed dinner.
