    ChefDLH's Note:

    This is a nice recipe for a meal that is not your usual red sauce enchiladas. What I really like is that it is low cost meal that tastes great. That said, it is time consuming so a weeknight meal it is not unless you have a lot of time. You can make it more convenient and less cost effective by buying a rotisserie chicken, chopped onion, jarred garlic and shredded cheddar. Or you can do it all yourself. It is up to you. This is from the All You magazine under "Make it Special" from Jan. 23, 2009. They say cost per serving is $2.35. My family really enjoyed this twist on a favorite. Enjoy! ChefDLH

Spoon about 2 Tbsp of chicken mixture down center of the tortilla. Roll tortilla around filling like a cigar and transfer, seam side down, to prepared dish.

      Really yummy! Hubby loved it. Says it's one of his "top ten" things I make now! I didn't have any fresh jalapeno's or canned chiles. I used jarred jalepeno's . Had a real good "kick"! Thanks!
