    Lavender Lynn's Note:

    This is my own personal recipe that we have loved for years. I just never got around to writing it down in recipe form. I have also used 1 pkg. Lawry's fajita marinade instead of the rub. The tortillas could be steamed in a steamer in stead of being fried.

      Great enchiladas! Very easy to make and my grand kids loved them. I used Mexican Seasoning Mix #456146 for the seasoning which turned out really good. Thanks Lynn for another keeper. Made for ZWT8 - Mexico/Tex Mex.

      A very easy, kid-friendly recipe for enchiladas. They sauce is pink because the sour cream gets mixed with the red enchilada sauce.

      I made just 1 pan using flour tortillas. Easy to put together and although I didn't fry my tortillas in oil first, the dipping of them in the sauce mixture first was unique (although we don't feel it made a difference vs pouring the sauce over top in the casserole dish). We topped with chopped cilantro and more onion on top before baking. We really enjoyed the seasoned grilled chicken in this dish. Thanks for a keeper recipe!
