Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas come together in no time – and that makes me happy. Quick dinners are something we all need in our arsenal of recipes.
The heat in these chicken enchiladas is on the mild side but you most definitely can turn the heat up by using a spicier salsa and even dicing up a jalapeno if you want. I love this recipe for more than how wonderful it tastes – I love that you can use leftover chicken (or pick up some of the rotisserie chicken from the store) and that most of us will already have the ingredients already on hand!

*you can replace the chicken with ground beef if desired
