I have made many different enchilada recipes in my time. Heath's favorite dinner in all the world is enchiladas. I probably make them 2-3 times a month. He usually has a favorite (for the longest time it was this recipe for Cream Cheese Chicken Enchiladas...this is still my personal favorite), and this is currently it. Every once in a while I'll try a new recipe to see how he likes it, but he always comes back to these, which is fine with me cause so far, they're the easiest to make. These are filled with nothing more than chopped chicken, sour cream, some chilies and some cheese. I usually cover mine with a nice layer of sour cream on top as well. I'm sure I'll try some more enchilada recipes in the future, but for now, this is the one of the best I've made so far. If you're a fan of Mexican food, I definitely recommend trying these. They're also a good choice if you're having a couple people over for dinner since they don't take too long to prepare. That way you can actually spend time with your guests!
