“This is one of our go-to recipes, loved by adults and kids alike. Serve it with a nice green salad and some guacamole and sour cream on the side. I like to pour lime juice over the chicken just prior to removing it from the heat, it adds a certain zing. The enchilada does not need to be fully stuffed. If you stuff them full, count on 1 enchillada per person instead of 1 1/2. The dish freezes well and goes from freezer to oven.”
