Gluten Free Chicken Enchiladas

gluten free chicken enchiladas
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.
