Chicken Enchiladas

4 Oct

Today’s recipe comes from Sunny Side Up in San Diego.

After a weekend of making pies, I decided that I was in the mood for something less American. These enchiladas that I StumbledUpon looked ridiculously delicious, so Mexican it was.

I made my enchiladas in two batches of four instead of eight all at once. It was a pretty simple dish to make, even though it got a little messy at the end.
