Spicy Chicken Enchiladas

Cooked chicken strips and canned enchilada sauce hurry along this zesty entree. I came up with this spicy chicken enchiladas recipe shortly after I got married. It's a delicious dinner for two that's easy to double for company. &mdashAmy Dando, Apalachin, New York

    I did not care for this at all. The tortillas became a soggy mess, I will not be making this again.

    Every year, my extended family spends a week at the beach together. This is the main dish for our Mexican night! A winner in my family for sure!
