Such a good and hearty meal!! And add to that, that this recipe uses mostly staple items and you have a winner! A good meal for this cold winter we have had since it warms you from the inside out!
Very good and super easy!
You can add 2 cans of diced green chilis to the meat mixture and used either ground beef or turkey instead of chicken. You may also substitute the can of whole corn for a can of creamed corn too.
I like this recipe better than one using ground beef and tomato sauce. The enchilada sauce really adds another layer of flavor. I made my own from scratch cornbread for the topping. This is a keeper.
