Creamy Chicken Enchiladas

Who needs creamy chicken enchiladas in their life?! 🙋🏼‍♀️ Enchiladas are one of the first dishes I learned how to make. My mom and Grandma make these on the regular too. I love that these are so easy to switch up with different flavors. I’ve got a recipe below for creamy chicken enchiladas that can be made any night of the week. These are great for leftovers too!

Enchiladas are not the most beautiful thing in the world and can be a bit tricky to photograph but it’s all a learning curve! I made these earlier this week and had leftovers for days. This is a quick dish to make when you have company coming over too! We shared ours with some friends this week.
