This is a very good TexMex entree I got from an online magazine. Just add a side dish and you've got a meal.

This is really good! If you like spicey this is it. Used McCormicks dry enchilada mix to make sauce and this yields about 3 cups - enough for extra sauce for rice. Did not use southwest seasoning on chicken, only a little salt and pepper. It is spicey enough without the seasoning. Great recipe and most definitely a keeper.
