We like to have Mexican food at least once a week. We love it! Tacos, enchiladas, taquitos–the choices and combinations are practically endless.

I’ve made just about every type of enchilada out there. My favorite part is the filling. And as much as I love the tortilla, sometimes I crave something that doesn’t feel as heavy. That is when I thought it would be delicious to have a chicken breast covered with a cheesy enchilada sauce. It’s chicken enchilada-style!

Here’s how you make it. The star of the recipe is a can of Old El Paso® enchilada sauce. If you’re feeling adventurous, use the spicy version!
