Famous Chicken Enchiladas, It’s What’s For Dinner!

Now that I have your attention! This recipe is the most requested in my house and they are famous in my house and friend group. They can be made quickly if you prepare your chicken in the beginning of the week. Even if you make your chicken the night of these are quick and easy. The way you season your chicken is crucial as you don’t want bland, boring chicken. I season my chicken with S&P, garlic powder, homemade taco seasoning (different post), and a touch of Creole seasoning. I know it seems like a lot but it is amazing mixed with the green chilies in this recipe.

I top mine with black beans and avocados! Enjoy y’all!
