Easy Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas in Green Sauce

Paula Todora


I make this or a version of this every single week-so easy! Sometimes I make them with all cheese, sometime with ground beef seasoned with taco seasoning and use a can of red sauce instead of green. The possibilities are endless!!!!!

    *2nd Note - Sometimes I add a splash of heavy cream to the sauce to make it a little creamier.
