Easy Chicken Enchiladas never tasted so good with sweet onions, fresh garlic, black bean, green chiles, and tender rotisserie chicken all nested in soft tortilla shells smothered in fresh enchilada sauce with plenty of shredded Mexican cheese. Folks it just does not get much better than that. This is a hearty meal all by itself but for a large group or a special occasion I like to serve this with Queso Fundido, Easy Mexican Coleslaw, and Strawberry Mimosas.
