Green Chile Chicken Enchiladas

These green chile chicken enchiladas top my list as a favorite Mexican dish.

Chicken Enchiladas

Tacos are at the top of the list in my home, my 10 year old can eat twice as many tacos as anyone else here. But these enchiladas are a close second. The roasted tomatillo salsa verde makes these great! Definately make your own, it’s so much better than the canned stuff!

Watch me make these enchiladas in this week’s episode of Eat Your Words…
