We are big fans of Mexican food. We typically have one Mexican type dish a week. These enchiladas were a nice change to our typical chicken enchiladas. I slow cooked the chicken with a packet of ranch seasoning and a batch of my homemade taco seasoning. The chicken was so juicy and packed full of amazing flavor. I topped the baked enchiladas with a creamy salsa ranch dressing. They tasted great! They were even good leftover for lunch the next day. I used the cooking liquid to make some easy Mexican rice to go with the enchiladas. This didn’t disappoint!
