The best chicken enchiladas!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Member's Choice Creamy, tangy, and cheesy, if you like chicken enchiladas, these need to be on your weekly menu. Green chiles in the sauce add just a hint of spice. Pick up a store-bought rotisserie chicken and these can be thrown together in no time. We think these chicken enchiladas will get gobbled up in no time.
