Chicken Enchilada

Jodies Chicken Enchilada

I Love a good traditional enchilada as well as the next person,so when my Mom had invited us for dinner one night she had the traditional one along with this other white one I had never seen before.
I had my doubts I would even like it because I love my Mexican food.
To my surprise I had a new favorite and went for seconds on this,asked for the recipe and have been making it every since.
Now I will tell you of course it doesn't taste like a traditional enchilada.
The cream gives it a delicious richness and the green chilies really set this recipe off.
One of my families favorites.I hope you enjoy.
