Expert Tips

Rotisserie chicken works well for this recipe. Just remove the skin and bones, and shred the meat with 2 forks. One average rotisserie chicken yields about 3 1/2 to 4 cups cooked chicken.

Red enchilada sauce can be used. It will give a pink tint to the finished recipe.

You could serve this recipe with tortilla chips as an appetizer.
