Mexican Feast Part 1: Chicken Enchiladas

This is Part 1 of my Mexican Feast series, Chicken Enchiladas.  I love Chicken Enchiladas and they are naturally gluten free and full of flavor.  Hooray!!

As you may have picked up, I love Mexican Food…to me it’s just food.  When I learned I had to give up gluten, I was so happy to find out that I could continue to eat one of the biggest food types I eat…Mexican.  These enchiladas will take you about 1 1/2 hours to prepare from start to finish, you won’t have to be working the whole time but make sure you’re not hungry when you start making these.  I like to make these on the weekend and freeze the leftovers for lunch or fast dinners during the week.
