Buffalo Chicken Enchiladas

This is not a drill. These buffalo chicken enchiladas—filled with tender rotisserie chicken, lots of cheese and, of course, Buffalo sauce—are a craveworthy, easy and delicious meal. The entire family will ask for them again and again. —Becky Hardin, St. Peters, Missouri

      These were delicious. I wasn’t sure about mixing enchilada and wing sauce, but it works! I make pretty good buffalo wings, but I have to say I think I’d prefer eating these as there’s more depth of flavor. Excellent!

      Made these for my family they were amazing! We are huge buffalo chicken fans. You can use these from appetizers by cutting them up and putting toothpick in them to making full meal. BTW, Estella, these enchilladas ARE NOT "Authentic"! Why people have to put down people's recipies is beyond me. This recipe was AMAZING!

      I made these for the Mcgregor/Cowboy fight and my family LOVED them! I served with a nice salad and celery sticks. Very rich but on point for buffalo chicken fans.

      Authentic enchiladas, whatever the filling, are made with corn tortillas, not flour tortillas.
