So yummy:) I used a garlic butter rotisserie chicken from Walmart because the meat is really juicy and tender. I will for sure be making these again!!!!!!

My husband is generally a picky eater. I didn't fuss with measurements or anything and used onion powder instead of onions. He liked them. I used two leftover oven fried chicken legs to make 3 enchiladas for him and used the Rotel original sauce as directed in the recipe (but I split the recipe in half needing only one can).

This inspired me to submit my recipe for Enchiladas. Yours was different and very good.
