“I love this chicken enchilada recipe and if you used reduced fat cheese and wheat flour tortillas it becomes a healthier dinner. The best part is if you use a Deli chicken half the work is done for you because you don't have to worry about cooking the chicken and it always has such a great flavor to it!”
