This really is an amazingly simple recipe. It's great for the times when we want something Mexican for dinner, but don't feel like doing a lot of cooking. We normally keep some bags of pre-cooked ground beef in the freezer and using the beef instead of chicken would also be quite tasty. I'm definitely keeping this recipe on file since time during the holiday season can be at a premium and this is a great dish to have in reserve.

This is the easiest chicken enchilada recipe I have ever seen. I have a salsa verde recipe that would be great. But store bought is always good when pressed for time. You could use leftover chicken or one large cooked chicken breast or two smaller ones. I do find the breasts kind of dry so I think thighs would be a good choice too.

My family and friends rave over this dish!
