Recipe by Bergy
I love enchiladas and what better way to use up some of the Holiday chicken or turkey. Make the enchiladas as hot or as mild as you like. I like to prepare the enchilads early in the day put them in the fridge, take out 1/2 hour before baking. I like my veggies crunchy so I do not prefry the ingredients but if you wish fry the veggie in a bit of oil until softened. You may use lite chesse and low fat sour cream. Sub with 2% cottage cheese for the sour cream if you wish. Nice to have a green salad along side
