    TheGrumpyChef's Note:

    A little different version of a family favorite. Whenever we grill or smoke chicken I always request that my husband do a little extra, so that there is enough to make chicken enchiladas the next night.

      These were just wonderful for a quick dinner! I didn't have enough chicken so I added 1 can of pinto beans ~ other than that, followed the recipe as written. DH loved the creamy cheese and chicken (and beans). I loved that it was quite delicious plus easy to put together. A new keeper recipe thanks to TheGrumpyChef! Made for POTLUCK TAG APRIL 2009!

      I let the chicken marinate for a day and used a mixture of cheddar cheese and monterey jack. This has a great flavor and I loved the creaminess from the ricotta cheese. Very easy to put together on a work night. Thanks!

      This was absolutely gorgeous!! I used 1 cup of Cheddar and 2 of Monterey Jack (only because I didn't quite have enough!),and used Kittencal's Taco Seasoning Mix#76616 for the chicken. I had a little of the ricotta mixture left over,so spooned it down the centre of the enchiladas before I topped it with the salsa and cheese. I served this up to some friends,and we all agreed that it was just fantastic. A really easy and totally delicious recipe.Thanks so much for posting this little treasure,Grumpy.This is going to become a firm favourite!!Made for PRMR.
