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!
