Chicken Chile Verde Enchiladas

“This is the way my Mom has been making enchiladas my whole life. She got the basic recipe from neighbors when she was a teenager. They are made with flour tortillas instead of corn and get a pasty texture which we enjoy. We always eat this with Rice Chile Verde for a nice unhealthy comfort food meal. My Mom has also frozen these alongside the rice chile verde in aluminum containers...they bake up great in the oven!”
12-14 enchiladas
