Leftover Chicken Enchiladas

Introduction

These are great with a side salad and extremely filling! The reason I call them leftover is because I use left over rotesrie chicken. These are great with a side salad and extremely filling! The reason I call them leftover is because I use left over rotesrie chicken.
