These Chicken Enchilada Cupcakes are great for lunch, dinner, or even a party! Football season is right around the corner! These muffins would be great for watching all the games!

We ate these yummy Mexican Cupcakes for dinner with some taco rice and a guacamole salad. They were so good. I heated up a couple for lunch the next day and they were great! If you want to cut down on the prep time, use rotisserie chicken for the cooked chicken. We always have a rotisserie chicken in the freezer for quick meals. It really makes dinner a breeze!
