Extra Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas

Hi friends! Today I have a super yummy recipe that I will definitely be making again this week… they were THAT good. I made Extra Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas and it takes a while to actually cook the chicken, but it’s pretty much just like set it and forget it! You can even make this in the crock pot and eat as shredded chicken tacos as well, if you might happen to be a little too lazy to actually roll these, hey, I won’t judge! Super num-i-ness ahead:

Now traditional enchiladas are made with corn tortillas but I prefer how flour tastes. That is why I called these enchiladas instead of burritos. I hope you try these out and like I said this shredded chicken is AMAZING in as chicken tacos as well. That is how I first tried this recipe out, I got it from my dad. SO yummy, thanks daddy!
