    Deantini's Note:

    This is one of our go-to recipes, loved by adults and kids alike. Serve it with a nice green salad and some guacamole and sour cream on the side. I like to pour lime juice over the chicken just prior to removing it from the heat, it adds a certain zing. The enchilada does not need to be fully stuffed. If you stuff them full, count on 1 enchillada per person instead of 1 1/2. The dish freezes well and goes from freezer to oven.

      Nice enchiladas! I wasn't sure what to expect with not having a sauce, but there was a nice creaminess from the salsa and sour cream on the inside. I had to make a substitution to corn tortillas to make it gluten free. Thanks for sharing! ZWT8

      So quick, so easy, but oh so good. We really enjoyed them, had leftover chicken, and this worked just great.
