Chicken Enchilada Throw Down?

by Tenina Holder

Yep a throw down, as officially defined by Jill on Great Cooks Community HERE, is not a contest so much as a last day of the month recipe that we all cook and post, and this month, (you lucky readers!!) the selected food is Chicken Enchiladas. Following reading a recipe for fresh tortillas also from our revered leader Jill, I have tweaked and changed this excellent recipe and we now have corn tortillas with our Chicken Enchiladas, so get talking in your best Spanish accent and happy eating! (Technically, Enchiladas are baked with additional sauce and cheese, but these are simply assembled and eaten fresh, so I suppose we are talking Chicken Tortillas, to be politically correct!)
