CHICKEN ENCHILADAS






 To give you some idea of how rich and creamy these are, I cut one open.

CHICKEN ENCHILADAS

Looks as good as it tastes! This casserole is rich with delicious, creamy Mexican flavors. Delightful! For convenience, if desired, use commercial Low-Carb Tortillas.  However, believe me, you won’t miss them with the Gluten-Free, Low-Carb Miracle Dough Tortillas.  They taste so good in this!
