Creamy Chicken Enchiladas

Robyn Grogan


To make this easier, I often use canned chicken breast meat. I also usually at least double the recipe, since the left-overs are awesome! Just as a note, it really IS necessary to saute the tortillas. It makes them much easier to work with and adds a little flavor and texture. This is great with a salad, Spanish-style rice and refried beans. Very yummy!
