Mexican Grill Chicken Taquito Enchiladas

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Tandy Higgins

My daughter, Jessica, discovered this dish when she had to make and take a Mexican dish to her Spanish class. We tried it out and found that the whole family enjoyed it. We like to serve it with refried beans and cheese. It's a quick and easy school night meal.

As simple as it is, this sauce is very tasty. This took about 15 minutes to make, which is great for a busy night! It may be that I used mild enchilada sauce so my DD could eat it, but I found it to be slightly bland. I definitely suggest spicing it up with salsa and other condiments.
