Chicken Enchiladas


This was quick weeknight meal. It took only minutes to put together. I really liked the sauce on top of the enchiladas. These can be assembled ahead of time and either frozen or stored in the fridge until you are ready to bake them. Serve this with some black beans and Mexican rice for a quick and delicious weeknight meal!
