BBQ Chicken Enchiladas
I know I've mentioned multiple times that Mexican food is not a favorite of mine. We never had it growing up and therefore I guess I just never acquired a taste for it. With that said I've recently started going out for Mexican more frequently and I'm hooked. I crave chicken fajitas daily. I dream of chips and salsa... and Mexican rice, gosh do I love Mexican rice! So after mentioning that, I have to admit I've been adding far more Mexican fare to my menu. These enchiladas are in no way traditional, but they mix some of my favorite ingredients together and result in absolute deliciousness. John and I were both huge fans of this- I can't wait to make it again! Plus it's a great way to use up leftover roasted or grilled chicken which is always helpful. Try this, I promise you you'll be happy.
