My husband requested this again and I couldn't reproduce the recipe until I found it torn from the magazine and in a drawer. We jazzed it up with a small can of diced green chills and topped it with sliced green olives before topping with a llittle extra cheese. We also bake it in the oven for about 30 minutes. We like to serve with avocados as well. Simpler recipe than many I have and I love that I know what is in the enchilada sauce. Real food!
20-Minute Chicken Enchiladas
Quick tip: While the sauce cooks, shred the chicken. For a spicy kick, top with chopped jalapeños.
