Homemade No-Fire Chicken Enchiladas

Kade Tanner


My wife has always disliked mexican food mostly because its spicy and she's the type of woman where even black pepper is too spicy. So I decided this fateful night of 8/11/15 to take the challenge of making her a mexican dish that she'll enjoy. She also hates spanish rice do to its use of bell pepper and red pepper....In the end, I bested her challenge for she enjoyed everything! If you personally would like a little heat to this dish, sliced jalapenos and Frank's Red Hot sauce really help it. If you want more mild, keep this dish exactly the way I made it. :)
