Best Chicken Enchiladas Recipe

Best Chicken Enchiladas

Best Chicken Enchiladas are so easy to make and they are indeed the best I have ever made! Chicken, cheese, and green chilies are tucked away inside tortillas that are topped with a creamy sour cream sauce. 
This recipe will become a weekly favorite, and it’s easy enough for beginner cooks! It’s also a great way to use up leftovers from a rotisserie chicken. The green chilies in this recipe are not hot, but mild, and add just the right amount of jazz.

    1. I made these last week and we all really liked them – this will be our Thanksgiving “turkey” at the request of family!! Very easy to make. I used the skin/bones from a rotisserie chicken to make my broth, delicious – added whole blk. peppers and chicken boullion for more flavor.
