 Life is getting crazy as we are nearing the start of school. There is SO much to do and get ready for before it starts.

My usual go-to dinner on busy days are my Creamy Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas. They are super simple and delicious. Plus, enchiladas are a meal I can count on every single one of my family members loving and gobbling up.

Lately I have had the Chipotle Ranch flavor combination on my mind. It is such an INCREDIBLE combo! If you haven’t yet, I highly recommend trying my Chipotle Ranch Chicken! It is one of my favorite Chicken recipes on the blog.

But let’s talk about today’s recipe. This sauce is to die for! It was such a tasty dinner and has the perfect kick of heat that is cooled down with ranch.

Give this dinner a try! You will not regret it!

    They look so good! I would always choose them instead of a restaurant made meal!

      Did you make them and how did they turn out?

    I made these tonight but changed it a bit... Instead of rolling them, I layered them like I do with my green chile chicken enchiladas. They are amazing but when I make them again, I will use Sadie's mild salsa, not hot...

    Could I use corn tortillas instead of the flour? I like the texture better.
