    This year in Oregon we have also had some oddly Spring-like weather… and t-shirt weather! Chicken Enchiladas are one of my favorite meals and one that my husband can’t turn down. I like to make a few extra trays of them to freeze for later, too!

    the sauce was VERY bland but it was an easy fix , this whole dish was easy to change to how we liked it … as a basic dish to start with this was great

    I love enchiladas but hardly ever make them b/c they can take so much time with fussy prep. I need this no fuss, weeknight version! Thank you for sharing with See Ya in the Gumbo his week.
