Chicken Enchiladas (See Jane Cook)

ready for the oven
In honor of the glutton-fest that's about to occur (i.e. Thanksgiving), I thought I would post the chicken enchiladas I made the other weekend.  I could honestly eat Mexican food almost every day.  I love fresh tortillas, avocados, tomatoes, and of course, cheese.  I prefer the healthier versions of these dishes, such as fresh fish tacos (no cheese, just fish, cabbage, and vinaigrette), but sometimes I love a good ol' Tex Mex meal.  I made this recipe of Chicken Enchiladas and it was surprisingly easy.  I kicked up the spiciness a notch with extra peppers and chipotles (because I crave the spice of life) and it was delicious.

How do you feel about Mexican food?

Girl We are meant to be friends...I can eat it EVERY day!!! I make a great enchilada with a green sauce with chorizo, I just made them a couple weeks ago but we were too hungry to get any pics, srsly the Hubs asked 'why didn't you post about those!" I replied, 'Dude you already had eaten two by the time I thought about it!'
