.Chicken Enchilada Simple Chicken Enchilada

I’m guilty, sue me,  I love Americanized Mexican food… And how American is this! Take a traditional dish and turn it into a delicious casserole!! I love the convenience of making casseroles, they take half the time that it takes to properly make rolled enchiladas. My Dad was the first person I ever saw make enchilada casserole, and with six children I can’t blame him! Can you imagine the time that it would’ve taken to make enough rolled enchiladas to feed a large family, no thank you!
