    Loved it and so did my man. Super easy and delicious. We've now taken the idea and started to create our own variations of enchiladas. Made butter chicken enchiladas the other night, cooked chicken, pepper and an onions then added a can of butter chicken sauce and a little bit of cream cheese. Rolled into a flour tortilla and topped with a little cheddar and baked. Delicious as well, my man age it all up and bragged to all his friends about it.
