Here’s a great little gluten free chicken enchilada recipe. They’re perfect for a dinner with friends, or just a casual mexican night for the kids. Sometimes I modify the recipe by making “Christmas Enchiladas” with both a verde salsa or green tomatillo sauce and a red sauce. What I do is I pour the red sauce along the center of the rolled tortillas and then I’ll spoon the green salsa on both sides. Then I center a thin stripe of shredded cheese down the middle, studded with sliced ripe (black) olives.

    The picture of the chicken enchilada recipe looks like it has corn in it, but the recipe does not call for corn. Also says to add chicken mixture, but there are no instructions for what to mix.
