      I used The Last Red Enchilada Sauce You'll Need for the enchilada sauce. And I used cheddar on top. Great enchiladas. Even my son liked them (minus the zucchini LOL). Thanks Syd :) Made for Holiday tag game

      My kids loved this recipe, though I left out the delicious veggies for them. My husband and I enjoyed the veggie and chicken packed enchiladas. It was a nice treat that they were lower in calories, too.
