Chicken Blanco Enchiladas
Chicken Blanco Enchiladas… These enchiladas will be THE BEST you ever have! The creamy blanco sauce is heavenly. The enchilada filling has just the right amount of spice and flavor. This dinner will become a menu regular and a new family favorite!
I have quite a few goals for the new year. One of them happens to be to make a sit down dinner more often in our home. One where the family is gathered and we are able to talk about the day. I feel like with all the after school sports and activities my kids are involved in, we are lucky when we all get the opportunity to sit down together. Most of the time dinner is one or two at a time or on the go. It makes me so sad because I LOVE when my whole family eats together.
This Chicken Blanco Enchiladas brought everyone to the table. They smell so fantastic and everyone RAVED about them! These are honestly my favorite enchiladas ever! I love creamy enchiladas, I love blanco sauce and I love the green salsa flavor so naturally these were a win in my book.
The best part was all my kiddos, picky eaters included adored them too. I love when I make a dinner everyone can enjoy and agree upon.
If you are looking for a fabulous dinner recipe the whole family will enjoy, this is the one! It is truly outstanding and will become a new regular in your house just as it is in mine :)

The ingredients list has 1 cup green chile enchilada sauce for dipping the tortillas, but it's not in the instructions. I assume you do that just before you fill the tortillas? These look amazing! I can't wait to try them.
