Chicken Chile Enchiladas

Updated on July 19, 2013
5 stars from 1 rating of Chicken Chile Enchiladas

Heavenly Enchiladas!

Chicken Chile Enchiladas are excellent served with a variety of sides such as Cilantro Lime Rice, Spanish Rice, Refried Beans, or a salad.

Throw a Fiesta! This dish complements any combination dinner that you may prepare, such as Fajitas, Mexican Lasagne, Burritos, Tacos, Tortilla Soup, etc.

I always have grilled onions, sliced avocados, diced tomatoes, shredded cheese, shredded lettuce, Pico De Gallo, guacamole and sour cream prepared for toppings. I also serve Nachos and/or Salsa and Chips.

Definitely don't forget the Margaritas!
