Breen's Creamy Chicken Enchiladas

Are you ready for a heart-stopping meal? Well, this is it! Unfortunately, it is heart-stopping in two ways, 1) Deliciousness and 2) definitely not healthy! However, when I am in the mood for classic enchiladas that aren't my usual, sweet, Honey Lime Enchiladas, these are my new go-to recipe. They were perfectly creamy with the tiniest bit of a kick, and I was praised by all of the people who ate this meal with me! This is a great meal to fix to impress! Thanks Breen!

I was one of the lucky ones to sample these enchiladas when Chelsea first tried the recipe, and I agree, they are wonderful...just the right amount of "hot" from the chilies and just the right creaminess to the sauce. Ymmm. Thanks, Chelsea

green chiles are the best.
it's been a while! i'm happy to see you're back, it must mean you're all settled up there in the big sky country!

Yikes heart stopping I would say. Not sure if I could put the cream in. Milk work? Probably not as tasty! Looks good.
