WHAT IS A CHICKEN ENCHILADA

A chicken enchilada is essentially a baked dish where cooked chicken is combined with cheese and wrapped into a tortilla, kind of like a burrito.  The enchiladas are placed in a baking dish and topped with either red or green enchilada sauce and baked.

The flavors are similar to tacos and there are many variations to the dish. Such as this low carb chicken enchilada soup.  And our keto chicken fajita casserole.
