I love, love, LOVE mexican food...authentic or otherwise. If it says "enchilada" I KNOW it has to
be something I would ADORE! These Chicken Enchilada Bowls were something I
thought I would tryout on the family and see if they were really as good as my imagination
made them out to be.......YEP, they were!! They made my mouth do a little happy dance!!
They are packed full of that comfort flavor of a "Chicken Enchilada" without all the work.
I KNOW these will make it to our table OFTEN!
