    I have to double this recipe next time! That is how much teenage boys loved it. I couldn't find the Santa Fe cooking cream so I used cream cheese with chives and about 1/4 cup of salsa. Very good!

    This recipe has become my favorite way to make chicken enchiladas.. and they weren't kidding when they said they were easy! My family doesn't like tomatoes so we substitute them with some roasted red peppers and green chilies! Yummy! I sometimes make them with cooked ground turkey and they are fantastic! My hubby is always asking me to cook them up! I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
