Chicken Enchiladas

Chicken Enchiladas

Introduction

Leftover cooked chicken is great for this. Substitute homemade flour tortillas if desired. These are very rich. I recommend a simple salad of shredded lettuce, tomatoes, corn, jalapenos and salsa topped with a dollop of plain yogurt on the side. Follow with coconut macaroons for desert.
