Chicken Enchiladas

Today is the first day of Meal Monday. It is a weekly post series on the subject of food. I’ll talk about my love for food to sharing recipes that I love cooking to food tips.


Who would like some Mexican food right now? I love Mexican food anywhere from tacos to enchiladas. What enchilada sauce is your favorite – green or red? For myself, I would have to choose green. My husband and I have tried making enchiladas with the red sauce, but we couldn’t finished eating them.

I make my chicken enchiladas very simple. I use canned green sauce. I don’t make my own special sauce. Sometimes I like having simple meals on certain days.

I love adding toppings on the top of my chicken enchiladas. It adds extra flavor, which I love. You can add whatever you have on hand. I top my chicken enchiladas with spinach, tomatoes, avocado, salsa, hot sauce, and Greek yogurt (instead of sour cream).

Here is my recipe for chicken enchiladas.
